Award winning, Leighton Hall is the lived-in house of the famous furniture making Gillow dynasty, nestling in a bowl of parkland against a spectacular backdrop of the Lakeland Fells. The estate stretches over 1,550 acres and is well worth exploring. As well as landscaped parkland and woodland walks, Leighton is home to a pretty 19th century walled garden, with flowers in abundance, rose covered walls, a fragrant herb patch and overflowing herbaceous border. It has almost a wild, cottage style. The only exception to the free form is the formal, ornamental vegetable plot. Many unusual plants are on sale in the beautiful Victorian conservatory. There's spaces for children to play and let off steam, with the ever popular Woodland Walk, dens, play equipment, a maze and new for 2016 a tree face trail. Most of Leighton Hall´s gardens are accessible to wheelchairs.

Leighton Hall also has a Historic House and Venue:

Review of Leighton Hall

Posted on by R RCustomer visited May 2016

We did a guided tour of the house led by a very knowledgeable volunteer, Anne. She explained the history of the house and the objects within very well. Unfortunately photos were not allowed but as this is also a private residence; sensible.

We then visited the grounds and walled garden before visiting the tea room (the old kitchen) for tea and a scone.

There was a bird of prey flying display included in the price but we opted out.

An interesting visit with pleasant, knowledgeable volunteers. Recommended.

This was a superb afternoon visit. The guide, Pam, knew her stuff and told us about the house and family with enthusiasm The views from the gardens and house were worth going for themselves. The birds of prey were an added highlight, shown by a caring and knowledgeable man.

Lovely place to have a walk around and let the kids get rid of energy running around the grass. We took a Picnic but there was a cafe.

Had an excellent guided tour followed by a bird of prey show on the front lawn. The house and grounds are stunning, the gardens are immaculately kept and the views from the rooms we went in were beautiful. The chap who does the bird show is a real character and excellent at what he does, we really enjoyed the whole experience and would definitely return.
