The Lake District Poet’s Garden
“In human life there are moments worth ages.”
The garden has been designed to reflect the writings and philosophy of William Wordsworth, the Lake District’s best known poet.
Wordsworth himself was a keen gardener and developed the gardens at Rydal Mount where he resided from 1813 until 1859.
He had strong views about how the garden should look, in particular he believed that a garden should be informal and in harmony with nature.
In our garden we have tried to utilise natural Lake District materials, and naturalistic planting to create a restful sanctuary that can be viewed from the Victorian stone summerhouse.
“In the climate of England there are for the lover of nature, days which are worth months… even years.”
