This lunchtime my wife and I decided to make a detour on our way home from Penrith, and to visit Acorn Bank, the National Trust property in the Eden Valley near Temple Sowerby and Culgaith.

After a delicious soup and sandwich we strolled around the gardens and walked through the woods to the beautifully restored watermill. Needless to say, the camera was busy and in the future I may upload a longer and more detailed account of Acorn Bank. For now suffice it to say that apart from the mill the highlight for me is the herb garden.

The Acorn Bank herb garden claims to have the largest collection of medicinal herbs in the North of England. It certainly is an extensive collection. More at a later date, but for now here is one corner of that beautiful garden.
