Acorn Bank Garden Temple Sowerby - Acorn Bank Garden
Renowned for having the North of England's largest collection of culinary and medicinal plants in a marvellous herb garden, Acorn Bank Garden really is a plant lover's delight. Two orchards, adjacent to the herb garden, contain a varied collection of rare and regional fruit trees, whilst in the Wild Garden, the Spring brings an abundance of daffodils and wood anemones.
Ancient oaks and the high enclosing walls of this delightful garden keep out the worst of the Cumbrian climate, resulting in a spectacular display of shrubs, roses and herbaceous borders. A circular woodland walk runs along Crowdundle Beck to Acorn Bank watermill, which although under restoration, is open to visitors. The house is not open to the public.
