Whether you've got a green finger or not, Larch Cottage Nurseries is a lovely little outing. Meandering through the garden paths, you can't help but relax and feel like you're in a fairytale. Surrounded by flowers, water features and statues it's almost like being in a different country - sights, sounds and smells inspiring creativity as you go. You'll be wanting to create the garden of your dreams the moment you get home!
There's also a gift shop/gallery to browse through and an italian style restaurant/cafe where we enjoyed a delicious lunch (perhaps a touch expensive though). Their "ultimate hot chocolate" was amazing and deserves a special mention! (see photo). We didn't have room to fit in a desert, but their cakes looked delicious. Service was good and the atmosphere was cozy and full of character.
Another great find in this beautiful corner of Cumbria!
