We did the circular walk from Alderly Edge. When we made it to Hare Hill we was a little lost and was looking for signs/ maps. The staff member who approached us was very unfriendly, unwelcoming and down right rude. He simply could have directed us towards the route or map but was more interested in us being aware we...

Unfortunately I happened to choose a very wet Saturday morning which meant I didn't see another visitor during my visit. However even in the gloom the walled gardens did look nice, but you'll need walking boots/shoes for the various woodland trails in wet weather. I did check out the Hide, but even the birds had given up on this wet... More

We love this place. The walled garden, planted with white flowering shrubs and roses is beautiful. The surrounding wilder garden has its own charm with ponds that will be restored to their former glories in 2017.

Absolutely fabulous place - one of those places you wish remained a well-kept secret. Beautiful walled-garden, lovely garden/ pond/ woodland walk - great for younger kids. Also a good starting point for more challenging walks. There's an enjoyable hare hunt as well. Well-maintained by the grounds men & just doesn't feel overly commercial, despite the arrival of the coffee stall... More

Visited during Halloween and followed the clues around the gardens trying to find the pumpkins. Storytelling, bird feeder making, candle making, face painting, hobby horse making and a scary headless horseman all included in the normal price. Good fun even if the headless horseman was a little too spooky for younger kids! Just needed to say boo loudly.

after a long walk from Alderley Edge, we went around the gardens, Would probably be better in spring, as October colour was dwindling.

Really nice place to visit tucked away in Cheshire. Will definitely visit here again with the kids for a picnic and hare sculpture hunting.

Very easy to negotiate grounds as this is a compact garden. Really nice walled garden which is a suntrap. During our visit there was a tai chi class going on. Went to the bird hide & saw a few different birds. There is also the opportunity to complete a 4 mile circular walk to Alderley Edge. Only refreshments are from... More

A very peaceful and calm place. There is not much here but this suited us on this day. We were all tired from previous night, so just needed somewhere to sit, lie down and chill. There is a little walk. No usual national trust coffee shop, but there is a decent coffee cart selling hot and cold drinks and of... More
