Lovely well kept secret gardens with ponds. Its is a very tranquil location. So nice to visit and not too far to walk round. Just perfect for a leisurely stroll round.

Open 1-4 every day until winter. Worth a visit...a hidden gem. No cafe at the moment, whilst greenhouses are being restored

The walled garden is the focus of a very pleasant walk between Grappenall Heys and Grappenhall village. The garden is looking good with all the growing going on within the walls. The glasshouse is in the process of reconstruction but the work does not detract from the garden itself. Outside the walled garden are some attractive ponds and landscaping and... More

A quaint walled garden harking back to days gone by. Sit and relax with a cup of tea and a piece of homemade cake. Dislike?? Only open on a Sunday!!

Great little place. An old walled garden run by volunteers. Grow their own fruit/veg. Make lovely jams. the tea shop is a delight with genuine home made cakes. Great for an hour.

It may be small, but is a gem. Lovely to still have this garden intact as the area around has been heavily built on with modern housing estates. If the weather is dry, its a great place to stop, sit and read. Great location for budding photographers also, plenty to capture.

This is a lovely place to visit. It is open each afternoon between 1pm and 4pm and there is no entry charge. There are three small lakes, lovely flowers and a stunning vegetable and fruit garden. In season fruit and vegetable are on sale some days - mainly Sundays but you can request them from the gardener at other times.... More
