Visited here by accident, but my cousin & I really didn't find anything exciting. We decided to keep walking thinking something good must be around the corner. Things seemed overgrown & I definitely wouldn't return.

This is a Truely special place. It's so picturesque and had an amazing surprise of a very pretty walled garden. A delight to photographers. Had a lovely picnic and relaxed

This is a woodland garden which is clearly seasonal. Having said that the walled garden is lovely and was being well used by families. The facilities were clean and tidy. The volunteers were knowledgeable and helpful. The whole visit took about an hour.

This is a small garden by NT standards, but worth a visit in Spring to see the lovely displays of rhododendrons. It's also good to make the effort to get there by walking from the nearby Alderley Edge woods (also NT), it's a pleasant, varied...More

This is not a garden which would suit everybody - it's not laid out as a formal garden or a cottage garden, but as other reviewers have said, it's a haven of peace and tranquillity. For us, it started with the friendly, helpful and informative...More
