Rydal Mount's Historic Garden
Wordsworth was a keen landscape gardener and the four acre garden remains very much as he designed it.
It consists of fell-side terraces, including Dora's Terrace, rock pools and an ancient mound. There are rare shrubs and, in season, the daffodils, bluebells and rhododendrons produce a spectacular display of colour.
