Levens Hall and a Car Boot Sale

One of the things that we knew we wanted to do during our week at Bay View was take a tour of Levens Hall and Gardens.


The Hall is famous worldwide for its topiary garden and if the information sheets are to be believed the topiary is the best of its kind in the world!  I can believe it.  We were both amazed by the size, shape and abundance of the specimens of topiary on offer.


  The rest of the garden was very pretty too. 


This little grouping of terracotta pots full of plants with little flowers caught my eye.  It must be nice to have green fingers and an artistic eye.  Think I’d settle for just the green fingers.


The Hall itself wasn’t so shabby either.  Photography wasn’t allowed inside the Hall but I can safely say it’s definitely worth a visit if you’re ever in the area.


On the last day of our holiday we drove a little way up the A6 toward Milnthorpe and tootled around a Car Boot Sale.


A huge car boot sale.


We each found stuff to look at.


There was something of interest for everybody.  I suppose it’s just a matter of opinion as to what is junk and what is a gem.  Neither of us found any gems but it was fun looking.

So that rounds up our week’s holiday at Bay View.

Until next time.
