How we Delight

A Haven of Illusions

Rose Castle Garden with its 800 year history is now a restful, peaceful sanctuary. 

Gardens are made by a succession of generations who each re-imagine nature and our human relationship within its sanctuary. Our head gardener Janet Queen is challenged daily to bring pockets of their illusions to life through the calendar year and across our diverse garden canvas.

Volunteers
Our Head Gardener, Janet Queen, has welcomed volunteers since 2003. We are mobilising a renewed volunteer programme so that garden enthusiasts can participate in and enjoy this special haven.

Diversity of Species
With 800 years of residence by the Bishops of Carlisle, we have benefited from the past enthusiasm of certain green-fingered bishops. Come and enjoy this horticultural accumulation and the leading inspiration of both Bishop Nicolson and Bishop Samuel Goodenough in particular.

Diversity of Habitats

Rich diversity of habitats includes ten main garden areas which each have their own remarkable history and showcase a range of plants, textures, colours and scents.

Our trees include native Oaks thought to be 300 years old, and non-native trees planted over the centuries for ornamental effect.

The workers

Up a ladder, wrestling with the lawn-mover, or keeping the Castle Drive choreographed for aesthetic delight are examples of our many priorities.

Diverse range of garden experts and owners who freely give their time and attention to re-imagine the next phase of garden development at Rose Castle. We have ambitious plans to design a masterplan around the garden's history, our ten main habitats and the future uses by Rose Castle Foundation.
