Tucked away in Cumbria’s rolling countryside, between the Lakeland fells and the Pennines, discover the charming village of Askham.
Part of the Lowther family estate, stay overnight in the grade I listed Askham Hall – a 12th century hall seeped in history, complete with hidden staircases and tales of royal guests. Or simply explore the 12-acre Askham Gardens. As well as offering a colourful mix of formal lawns, vegetable gardens, woodland, meadows and ponds, there are newly created animal trails, for the chance to explore English wildlife up-close.
Why not stroll to the elegant grounds of Lowther Castle, once home to the Earls of Lonsdale, or enjoy local foodie treats straight off the land at the nearby George & Dragon country inn. Lastly, explore the high fells above Askham for fantastic English countryside views over Ullswater and the Helvellyn mountain range.
