About Dalemain Estate
Wander along the Georgian terrace border being sure not to miss the Silver Fir (Abies cephalonica) which is now the biggest of it's type in the British Isles. Then stroll in the Tudor knot garden, continue along the Rose Walk with over 150 old fashioned roses, at their very best in June/July when the heavenly scent is intoxicating. 

The ancient apple trees in this area of the garden are named 18th/19th century varieties with nearly 30 different kinds. The fruit from these trees is used in the tearoom in several of the delicious recipes available throughout the year. 

At the top of the rose walk you arrive at the Gazebo still with it's 18th century seating which in late summer is almost hidden by a profusion of Clematis tangutica.  From here you will find the entrance into shady Lob's Wood.
