I am staying in Hayfield, Derbyshire on Saturday night having visited an elderly Aunt in Rochdale. Does anyone know of any good gardens to visit in the area between Rochdale and Hayfield/Glossop?
The park and gardens are good at this time of year and not crowded.
I did consider it, have been before so thought I'd see if there was anything else. Thanks for your response
My NGS book does not have a good map, but in Derbyshire on Sunday;Bluebell Arboretum and Nursery, Annwell Lane, Smisby, Ashby de la Zouch LE65 2TA (B5006)
01530 413700 £3.00 entrance
...forgot to say, it is 9 acres, but NOT Bluebells, more woodland with rare trees and shrubs plus 'sensational Autumn colour'.
The national trust has some gardens around these areas they are a bit cheaper than chatsworth.there is Haddon Hall but compared to t some NT gardens , it is only small.
Have you tried Google for ideas?
If you like nice views get yourself up to Frogget Edges, with a nice flask of coffee and some sarnies. You can park on the road side the follow the path for breath taking views. It's just near curbar.
You can come and see my garden if you like - forks and spades will be handed out on arrival
hardwick hall is beautiful
ps we're not far either, lots of work to do here if you want to see one of Sheffield's smallest gardens and get shouted at by my 3 year old we'd love to see youi!!
