Levens Hall and Gardens

Levens Hall and Gardens:

Levens Hall is an Elizabethan house approximately 11 miles east of Lothlorien close to Kendal.

It is renowned for its world famous topiary garden (designed in 1692), its predominantly Elizabethan interior, and ghostly sightings.

In 1692, the then owner, Col James Grahme, brought in the much sought-after Monsier Beaumont, to lay out the magnificent topiary gardens which have remained unchanged ever since.

Many of the original box and yew trees are still in place.

The magnificent mansion was built around a 13-Century Pele tower that had been built in response to the traumas of the border conflict.

Due to its considerable age, structural repairs to the leaking roof at the north tower are currently underway.

Furthermore, the hall has fine panelling, plasterwork and Jacobean furniture and fine paintings.

As mentioned, the gardens were laid out in the 1690s and much remains of the original spirit, including more than 100 pieces of enormous quirky topiary – some dating back to the original plantings.
