A lovely visit at any time of the year but especially beautiful in the sun with the spring bulbs in bloom. The frogs were busy too in the wildlife area. There are well made up paths and wheelchairs available by the Blue Badge area. There are some rougher paths, which can be muddy at times, but it's not necessary to... More

The gardens are always a delight with something new to see every time you visit. The gardens are free to visit and the cafe is good but the parking is a little on the expensive side.

Myddelton House garden, not far from Capel Manor and Forty Hall, is one of the fine attractions of Enfield. It is a plant-lover's treat, particularly in Spring and early Summer. This is a tranquil place with good parking facilities and, besides having a tea/coffee shop, there is a small stall selling plants from the garden.

My friends and I were very impressed by what they've done here since previous visits as it seems so much bigger. It was good to see different varieties of snowdrops amongst zillions of crocuses and some hellebores, too. It was advantageous arriving later than intended (not easy to get there either by car or public transport) as then I had... More

Great place to visit to see unusual plants and information about E A Bowles. Nice cafe. Entry is free but a charge for car park which is used to help with running the park. Also art exhibitions are sometimes held.

Visited the gardens on a lovely day in February the snow drops were out in abundance, but most of the other plants were dormant, however the greenhouses were amazing well worth the journey will go again during the summer to see the gardens

Thanks for reviewing Myddelton House Gardens. The snowdrops really make the gardens come alive in the winter and it’s great to hear you were able to visit and see them. We hope to see you in the spring and summer to see how the gardens change and which plants and flowers make an appearance throughout the seasons. More

We visit Myddleton House and Gardens on a seasonal basis and are always delighted by the changes seen. This is a splendidly maintained and vast garden that still manages to look wild. It is interesting to see the changes as we go through the year. I was impressed today by how many children were here and really enjoying the atmosphere.... More

My Wife & I live only 10 minutes away from MYDDLETON HOUSE GARDENS and, particularly on a lovely summers day, it is so lovely to stroll around these very historic gardens with many rare plants! It also contains a wonderful lake fed from a spring full of goldfish, giant carp and beautiful Water Lillie species. On a hot day there... More

A well kept and lovely setting. The gardens are always interesting to walk round and relax at all times of the year. The bluebells are beautiful in March. The tea shop could be more imaginative with its menu. It seems to always run out of food when I visit. The tea shop closes at 4 and the gardens at 5.... More
