This impressive tome takes the reader on a beautifully illustrated tour. (Sunday Telegraph)
This is one of the most alluring gardening books I have seen in a long time, giving a real sense of a unique location. What a refreshing change from all those good-looking coffee-table books that try to cram a whole world of gardening into one breathless, door-stopping volume. Tim Longville's engaging and informative text draws us into the green-fingered worlds of an eclectic range of owners and gardeners, and Val Corbett's sensitive, evocative photography has been faithfully reproduced to the highest standards. All are in a generous format that enables you to wallow in the green glories of a compellingly scenic region far more blessed than bothered by its climate. (Kathryn Bradley-Hole Country Life)
Leaves you with a fierce pride of Cumbria's rich and varied landscape, and buying this as a gift is the perfect excuse to share it all. (Cumbria Life)
Insider knowledge about the history and secrets of the gardens and, if you're a regular visitor to the area, this is a must-have. (Garden Answers)
Taking readers beyond the lake and fells to some less well-known treasures, this is a book which will be equally enjoyed by gardeners and visitors to the area. It is a treasure trove of information and interest, which could not fail to appeal. (Lake District Herald)
