Our visit was on a Saturday but it was not overcrowded so aquiring refreshments was not a problem.The gardens were delightful.and very accessible. We booked a tour of the hall and were so pleased we did. Our guide, Chris, was excellent as she was so knowledgeable about the family history and the contents of the house. Even small fold up...

First impressions count - here at Renishaw they're first class. Visiting with my mum, i'd forgotten my RHS card which allows free entry, but the lovely lady at the ticket office spotted mums gold card allowing her free entry, on top of which we got our 15% discount on my entry with our voucher. Not all gardens are keen to... More

i visited on a Friday afternoon with three friends. We turned up (having booked tour tickets by telephone that morning) and spent an hour wandering (and very much enjoying) the gardens before the tour began. Going around the house is by guided tour only and takes about an hour. You get to see most of the rooms on the ground... More

We visited on a warm, but not sunny day; perhaps surprisingly for mid August, the gardens were not crowded and this made the wander round even better. The gardens are beautifully laid out and planted, in a rural location with superb views over the Derbyshire countryside. If we had any criticism, we would have preferred slightly more plant information; I... More

Walked around the gardens and saw some lovely surroundings gardens with some unusual plants. Followed the plan to visit the lakes and ended up on a higher terrace than the lakes. Ask how to get there if you don't want to be walking round in circles. Map not much use. Restaurant could have a better selection of food,decided not to... More

Food in the restaurant amazing. Gardens are beautiful. All in all very pleasant. However don't get the pound parking fee when we are paying a reasonable high entry to the garden

Renishaw Hall Gardens have won the title this year and it's well deserved as they are truly fabulous. You have to wander around a lot to see it all ecause the various sections are cunningly concealed from each other by immaculately maintained high yew hedges. At the moment the hydrangeas have to be seen to be believed. So many of... More

Between Chesterfield and Sheffield. Visited Renishaw as it hosted an exceptionally good Plant Fair, but spent a very pleasant few hours here. Beatiful gardens and grounds with amazing views. A lovely tea room offering a good selection of food. One small shop set out very well. A tiny museum telling us of the history of the Sitwells. Nothing on a... More

My wife and I visited today. Disappointed. Not much to see. After a walk around lakes and small garden it was the old museum which was limited and the cafe. Staff were great but after the shared Greek meal she was sick! The steps to the lakes was unsafe and the hand rail gave way. This is not what you... More
