3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

A pleasant walk and ideal for a short walk. Used by the local community for outdoor events during summer.

“Beautiful mature gardens :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

So happy this place was salvaged from the jaws of the developers, it's like a step back in time, beautifully mature gardens, fresh local produce and a wonderful group of people that maintain it. Can't wait to see the new glass houses when they are eventually built :)

“Soon to be even better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

The Grappenhall Heys Walled Garden is a reassuring trip back in time, lots of history, relaxing and beautiful gardens and 1990's prices in the coffee shop. It is soon to get even better with the refurbishment of the green houses - to form an enlarged indoor venue for events. Never thought they would secure the funding, but it's a real achievement for all concerned after many years of effort and volunteering. It is good to have such a facility at the heart of Grappenhall Heys; combined with outstanding schools and easy access to the explosion of new Stockton Health shops and now more restaurants than Knutsford. It's a great place to live and to visit.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

The gardens and refreshments are all manned by volunteers, the cakes in the little restaurant are first class and the gardens a joy to see.

“A local gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

The gardens are lovely and well tended. You can buy local produce at reasonable prices, enjoy a coffee and slice of cake, plus there are regular community events. The money raised from the events goes back into the gardens so is for a good cause.
