I very relaxed laid back garden to visit. Less formal than most but tranquil and peaceful. A wonderful place to get away from the busy hubbub of life yet so close to a busy town. Very much worth a visit and I shall visit again.

The gardens are maintained by local volunteers and open to the public to enjoy for a small fee. Includes a small cafe which provides the useful cakes, tea and coffee. Dogs are also welcome as long as they are kept on the lead.

This garden is well off the beaten track. So you will need either an Uber from Harlow Mill station (around £7 single) or sat nav in your car. Hopefully, you’ve picked a day when the Gibberd rooms are open. As it’s an insight to how...More

The gardens are so nice, shame that the area which was once upon a time a lovely field is now being made into a housing estate. Still, this is not the gardens fault! I just wish they didn't charge so much to go in, it...More
