Since moving to Gresgarth Hall in Lancashire in 1978 with her family, Arabella Lennox-Boyd developed the gardens there, marrying Italian style with British plantmanship.

In 1989 Arabella formed ‘Arabella Lennox-Boyd Landscape and Architectural Design’ where she heads a team of designers that have designed and developed the glorious gardens that you will see today.

Arabella has been designing gardens for over forty-five years and has landscaped more than four hundred gardens worldwide, including six Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal gardens and the Best of Show winner in 1998, while she created the Rooksnest Lambourn Woodlands in Berkshire, which was an “exceptionally fine” ten acre “traditional English garden” for Dame Theresa (née Rowling) Sackler.

By Train:
The closest train station is Lancaster followed by a 5.5 mile taxi ride to Gresgarth (10 - 15 minutes). 
We regret that, due to uneven ground and gravel pathways, some parts of the garden are not accessible for wheelchairs. We  would also like to point out that Gresgarth Hall Gardens are private and therefore paths and stepping stones are not secured as they would be in a public garden. While we do our best to guide our visitors safely across uneven surfaces, they come at their own risk. Children are welcome on all types of visits and admission is free of charge.
