Holker Hall & Gardens

Attractions History & culture

The home of Lord and Lady Cavendish, Holker Hall is one of the best-loved stately homes in the country. Framed by the Lakeland Hills, and only a short distance from Grange-over-Sands, this grand neo-Elizabethan mansion dates back to the 16th century. After a guided tour of the house, you can explore 25 acres of formal and woodland gardens modelled in the Victorian fashion. Round your visit off with a taste or two of locally- produced delicacies in the Food Hall.
