Any recomendations for a garden to visit

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.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    I did consider it, have been before so thought I'd see if there was anything else.  Thanks for your response

    ...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.
