Stagshaw Garden



Stagshaw Garden, located in Ambleside, Cumbria, England, is a lovely eight acre woodland garden on a steep hillside that overlooks Lake Windemere.  It is known for its collection of flowering shrubs, including rhodedendrons and azaleas.  There are also a few small waterfalls.  It's really a nice place to visit.



The garden is open daily, April to June from 10:00 AM to 6:30 PM.  From July to October, it is open by appointment only.  Admission is 2.50 British pounds.

    1. Sorry to hear about your hands. Hope they get better soon. I'll try to stop by your blog more frequently. Sometimes I just don't get around as much as I'd like.
