This is such a treat of a place, great for old and young alike. It’s an hour not a day but lots to see and discover. Thanks to whoever looks after it. Amazing what you find on a walk.

Well worth stopping, if you are in the area. As you are traveling on the road from/to Hawes/Leyburn, through Aysgarth is this lovely Little Rock garden, has a history, is well kept and has something new to offer, depending on the time of year! Enjoy.

In the 20+ years I've been coming to the Dales I must have passed this little garden dozens of times without venturing in. It is quite small, but with a charming array of plant life, and a little cascading stream apparently operated by a photo-electric...More

If you find yourself in Aysgarth, perhaps as part of the Falls walk, do venture into the village of Aysgarth and have a little wander around this wonderful rock garden/grotto. There is a very interesting website about the history of the chap who had it...More

This rock garden was a great find right before leaving Aysgarth. We stayed 2 nights at Yoredale House (great place) and almost missed it. We met the owner who was painting the fence and got to learn the garden's history. This was a really interesting...More

Driving through Wensleydale we suddenly saw this rock garden and stopped to have a look. Although small, it's really special and proves how great the community spirit is in the UK that such a wonderful place can exist today. Perfect for a short stop when...More
