Hillcrest Cottage Garden in Summer

Everything is looking lovely in the garden at Hillcrest.

Its good to see that our guests have been taking advantage of the recently added outdoor table and chairs.  Alfresco breakfast or morning coffee in the garden?

Roses, lavendar, hydrangeas, foxgloves, anemones; Hillcrest’s garden is awash with colour and scent.

The fell is a patchwork of greens and yellows broken up by miles of dry stone walls.  The lightest yellow fields have recently been cut for hay and will soon ‘green up’ again with young, tender grass that is called ‘fog’ in the upper dales.
