Dalemain's Magical Gardens are an International Sensation!

我が愛しの ダルメイン邸とヒストリックガーデンへ ようこそ! For English information about the Gardens, Click Here.

 

Dalemain’s beautiful gardens are to be viewed across Japan, thanks to a new, in-depth documentary. For the past five months, starting with the World’s Original Marmalade Awards & Festival in March, filming of Dalemain’s Gardens has been commissioned by NHK, a major Japanese network. The result is ‘Dalemain’s Magical Garden’, an hour and a half documentary to be broadcast on 20th August at 7:30pm on primetime Japanese television.

Japanese visitors have always been famous for their love of the Lakes and English gardens, making Dalemain the ideal home for such a programme. The Japanese have also always been keen supporters of the Marmalade Awards – six Artisan Gold winners in 2016 were from Japan, with several attending the Awards ceremony at Dalemain. The Festival was therefore a perfect feature in what has gone on to become a fully immersive documentary into Dalemain’s historic gardens and the ways in which they change as the year progresses, with the Dalemain meconopsis blooming and the Rose Walk bursting into life. 

 

Jane Hasell-McCosh, owner of Dalemain says “I am so delighted that our gardens have been recognised for their beauty, and that NHK have seen the potential for this documentary. The gardens are extremely close to my heart, and it has been fantastic to take the film crew through the stages of the garden every month, showing them all of the facets that create such a wonderful place of tranquillity.”

It is hoped that the Japanese people watching the documentary will enjoy the opportunity to immerse themselves in a true English garden, and that some of them will be able in the future to visit Dalemain and see the reality for themselves.

 

 Dalemain Mansion & Historic Gardens

'Dalemain is a house that needs to be full of people. This is as true today as it always has been and as much as it is a home to my wife, myself and our children, it is a living, working entitiy that is of much wider importance and interest to the many people whose lives come into contact with it in one way or another.  We love it as our home, a very special house with an extraordinarily warm and welcoming atmosphere, and it is our pleasure to share it with the many visitors and friends who chance upon it. We are home to 'The World's Original Marmalade Awards & Festival' held annually in March at Dalemain and this year our message is clear 'Cumbria is Open for Business' despite the recent flooding and the Marmalade Festival is a great way to launch the new season for visitors.      Robert and Jane Hasell-McCosh

Dalemain has been the home of the Hasell Family for eleven generations, the most recent becoming Hasell-McCosh on the marriage of Robert and Jane Hasell-McCosh.
