Visit to Holker Hall and Gardens...
If anyone is out this way I'd recommend a visit...despite the rain it's a good day out if you like history and gardens. Very child friendly too, although we were on a child free day, plan to return with children in tow before they go back to school. Children under 16 go free and the play area is well out of the way if you don't have children. There's also an indoor and outdoor picnic area.
They are in the 2 for 1 entry guide and there's a discount for the gardens.
We didn't get to walk round the gardens due to the rain so no pics but had some lovely views of it from the Hall. There is a nice Food Hall and Gift Shop, both a tab bit expensive but good places to buy gifts. Good selection of books regarding gardening, preserves and cooking.
There is also a plant fair on 31st August which is free entry.
