The Grade II listed gardens are full of stunning features, including colourful terraces, a 230ft long double herbaceous border, unusual species of plants, formal lawns, kitchen gardens, woodland, meadows and ponds. Take in the views down to the River Lowther and enjoy the secluded spots of the garden. You can also buy plants to take home. Furthermore visitors to Askham Hall can now get even closer to nature with the arrival of the new animal trails. Along the family friendly route there is the chance to see shorthorn cattle, rare breed pigs, boer goats, ducks and chickens. For the eagle-eyed, the surrounding area is also a haven for red squirrels, rabbits, badgers and pheasants.
