Clearbeck offers, say visitors, “a surprise round every corner”. Lawns, flower beds and ponds near the house lead out over the lake and wildlife landscape garden to mountains and meadows beyond. A statue of Don Quixote, catching your eye from the gate, captures the spirit of this 4+ acre garden, where tower, temple, pyramid and maze tempt the fun-loving and thoughtful.
A new scrape has been dug in the wildlife area near the lake. We hope it will increase the already extensive diversity of wild life.
Set in the lovely area of Tatham Fells, it was dubbed “the artist’s garden” by RHS tours because of its sculpture and artist’s studio.
