As lovely as ever, even in the late autumn. We walked the length of the gardens to visit the scout hut where they were holding a craft fair.

These gardens are immaculate, we visit in late August and they were full of blooms with lovely well maintained lawns. Rarely are public areas so well looked after. Lovely place to stop and rest whilst shopping or walking round this lovely little town.

Well done to the local council for keeping this garden always in tip top condition. It’s always a pleasure to walk through or just to sit and enjoy such a well maintained garden. A little gem not to be missed.

The gardens depending on time of year are colourful,vibrant and well cared for. We loved how all the colours blended and all the different patterns made by the flowers. The gardens are not that big,but worth a look and they are quiet n peaceful.

Bath gardens are small but perfectly formed with plenty of seating areas. These gardens are free to wander and are a few minutes from the pretty centre of Bakewell town. Visited 17th February 2018.
