Holker Hall & Gardens was to welcome BBC CountryFile who spent a wonderful afternoon filming in the gardens as part of a feature on the Holker Estate.
Matt Baker and the CountryFile team had two full days filming in the area including time in Morecambe Bay, the final afternoon of which was spent strolling around the blooming gardens filming an interview with Lord Cavendish.
After refuelling on afternoon tea in the Holker Cafe, they talked about the Estate and its tenant farmers, having spent time earlier in the day with Holker Saltmarsh Lamb farmer Harry Wilson.
They then moved onto the Holker Food Hall where Matt was able to sample some of the local and Estate produce.
The coverage will air as part of the show due to broadcast on Sunday 23rd May at 7 pm on BBC1.

The Ilex Bar & BrasserieOpen for lunches - including a very special Sunday lunch -
This weekend’s damp weather didn’t affect the fiery fun at Holker with a full house for the chilli eating competitions hosted by Darth Naga. A packed Courtyard watched on as 10 competitors (on each day) took part in the lively competition. Saturday’s competition was the most entertaining yet with Darth commenting it was best one he had ever hosted - humorous contestants were encouraged by the lively crowd - with Jordan from Barrow taking centre stage. Joint winners took the trophy on Saturday and Ed Duffy was crowned Sunday’s winner after reaching around 250,000 scovilles.
