secret gardens

Some of the most beautiful and spectacular gardens of the Lake District were designed by a remarkable man, Thomas Mawson.

He was a plantsman and landscape architect who ran a plant nursery business in Windermere in the 1880s, and then concentrated on garden design. His first big project was at Graythwaite Hall, near Newby Bridge, now a wedding venue. He also designed the gardens at Holehird, Brockhole and Holker Hall, and then, in 1909 the magnificent formal garden at Rydal Hall.

And early in his career, he designed our gardens here at Burn How.

The current owner, Mr Michael Robinson, has cared for and cultivated the mature gardens for over 30 years, encouraging the local wildlife that delights our guests with their antics, and creating an oasis of peace and tranquillity where you can Escape, Relax and Unwind.

Some of the Japanese Maples (Acer palmatum) in front of the restaurant have been around for over 50 years, and the rich and colourful gardens are also home to a wide variety of native plants and trees.

Everywhere you look at Burn How you are surrounded by uninterrupted  views of our beautiful gardens and many of our bedrooms feature outside seating areas or balconies so you can really make the most of our stunning surroundings.
