Acorn Bank (National Trust)


National Trust property. Delightful garden renowned for its herbs and fruit orchards. The 17th-century walls shelter the National Trust's largest collection of medicinal and culinary plants in the fascinating herb garden; the traditional orchards are carpeted with wildflowers and surrounded by herbaceous borders. Beyond the walls, the new orchard contains a growing collection of local apples. Car parking within grounds. Small shop and plants for sale. A circular woodland walk runs beside the Crowdundle Beck to Acorn Bank Watermill. Herbs and fruit from the garden are used in the tearoom.
