Summerdale House

Lupton

1½ acre part-walled country garden set around C18 former vicarage. Several defined areas have been created by hedges, each with its own theme and linked by intricate cobbled pathways. Relaxed natural planting in a formal structure. Rural setting with fine views across to Farleton Fell. Large collections of auricula, primulas and snowdrops.

    The garden at Summerdale House is a fine example of what 20 years hard work and dedication along with a love of plants and traditional English garden design can achieve. Strong structural elements provide the framework for lush planting to create year round interest in the garden.
    Alongside the garden we have developed a small nursery growing a wide range of interesting and unusual herbaceous perennials.
