In nearby Hawkshead be inspired by the National Trust's Hill Top, the former home of Beatrix Potter. A little further away in Penrith is inspiration for gardeners in the form of an English Rose Walk with over 100 old English roses at Dalemain Mansion's Historic Gardens and the herb collection at Acorn Bank House.
