Lowther Castle and Gardens wins at The Georgian Group Architectural Awards

The amazing restoration of the landscape at Lowther Castle in the Lake District has been announced as a winner at the 2017 Georgian Group Architectural Awards, scooping the coveted title of Best Restoration of a Georgian Landscape.

The renowned awards, which are sponsored by Savills, are now in their fifteenth year and recognise ‘exemplary conservation and restoration projects in the United Kingdom and reward those who have shown the vision and commitment to restore Georgian buildings and designed landscapes’.

Owners of Lowther Castle, Jim and Vanessa Lowther, accepted the award, which was presented during a ceremony at the Royal Institute of British Architects on the 1st December, on behalf of Lowther Castle, The Garden’s Trust and Dan Pearson Studios.

On winning the award, Jim and Vanessa said: “We are delighted that this long and complex project has been acknowledged at a national level. This is a great big feather in our cap and a fitting and pleasing recognition of all the extremely hard work put in by the Lowther Castle home team, Dan Pearson Studio, Lowther Castle, The Gardens Trust and all associated with the project.”

Dan Pearson Studios was first appointed in 2008 to provide a landscape master-plan for the cultural redevelopment of the castle and gardens. This was then overseen by Land Use Consultants, before Dan returned in 2011 to help implement several aspects of the plan to stunning effect, including a new Parterre Garden built on the site of the previous Lowther Hall ruins, new plantings to the castle interior and landscaping of the Courtyard, which was planted with specimen hornbeam topiary in January 2017.

The grounds at Lowther Castle are now lovingly managed by Head Gardener, Martin Ogle, and his dedicated gardening team. They are currently working on an exciting project to plant a spectacular new rose garden on the site of the historic rose garden. The development is currently underway and will be unveiled in Summer next year.
