“New (Hi) parking fees !”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

From 1st Aug 2014 they now charge £2 for the first hour of parking !

Used to be a lovely place to drop in for good cuppa and cakes and a roam round the garden but no longer! I was a regular visitor but adding £2 to the cost of a cup of tea is plain extortionate. They've seen the

You don't even get free parking if you spend money in the café.

If you don't mind the parking cost it's still a pleasant garden to visit.

“Something different for all”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

I have been longing to go back to this gardens since after visiting it at a school trip. It is free to enter and look around, looking at all the scenery and different plants and flowers. It also has a wonderful pond which you can sit by on benches and just admire the peaceful and very well maintained garden. It too has a wonderful cafe and a seating area where you can have a beverage. There is a car park which you have to pay, however you cannot fault them for doing this and you can spend an endless amount of time here without spending a penny to get in. Will be looking forward to going again just too silly not to return.

“Myddleton House & gardens”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

The gardens were created by plantsman E.A. Bowles, the small museum-type room details his life and status, the gardens are constantly being worked on to return them to their original design. There is a cafe on site & plenty of parking. On occasions the groundsman is availble to answer questions from visitors.

Had a great trip around the gardens here on a nice sunny day. It's completely free too which is always a bonus. It has a great cafe onsite too.

“Myddelton House Review”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

A nice botanical day out, with a very nice cafe attached. Plenty of photo opportunities and a nice pond with some very hungry carp (you can obtain a bag of feed for just a few pence)
