Six acres of beautifully landscaped gardens slope gently from the hotel to the lake shore. They were planned and laid out by Thomas Hayton Mawson, a landscape architect of international distinction, who was responsible for the Palace of Peace Gardens in the Hague.
The Hotel’s reception rooms and terraces enjoy some of Lakeland’s most spectacular panoramic views, and has been voted “best view in Britain” by Caterer Magazine. The gardens at Langdale Chase are a riot of colour all year round, but May is a particularly spectacular month when the garden is ablaze with flowering azaleas and rhododendrons.
As you explore the woodland walks and lakeshore paths you will see why the Hotel’s gardens are some of the most perfectly set in the whole of Europe. There are some magnificent specimen trees including a Japanese Umbrella Pine ( one of the best in Europe), Oriental Spruce and Coast Redwood.
Langdale Chase enjoys one of the longest garden frontages to Lake Windermere and guests can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the Lake, with its water skiers, steamers, sailing boats, traditional charr anglers and World Water Speed Record attempts in the Autumn.
With such magnificent gardens and a truly unmatched setting it is little wonder that Langdale Chase is one of the Lake District’s most popular wedding and special occasion venues.
The hotel grounds are a wedding photographers paradise and this ensures that the newly married couple get a unique memento of their wedding at this beautiful hotel.
