  • Paid £5 (EACH!!) for a 10 minute walk around a very underwhelming garden. • Sickly looking plant specimens. • Loads of poorly planted areas with little thought to successional planting. • Large compos...  more »
  • Set in a valley in the village of Bonsall in Derbyshire this is a heaven of a garden to wander around. Loads of things of interest and check out the lead mine but make sure you don't suffer with claus...  more »
  • The TripAdvisor listing is a bit confusing as there is a B&B here, as well as the gardens. This is a review of the gardens. We went to Cascades Gardens as part of a day trip to celebrate a special ann...  more »

  • Amazing natural gardens. It was fun climbing the cliff. Check out the history of the old corn mill. They were just completing their new cascade with water pouring from the rocks into 3 pools. Great collection of dwarf conifers. Never realised they came in such variety. The kids loved going into the lead mine. Well worth a visit.
  • I am genuinely confused as to where the 5 star reviews saying that this place is a “heaven” and a “gem” which can also be found on other websites are coming from.Completely overrated.I do not recommend it, even to my enemy. There is nothing special about this place. Do not waste your time and your money, there are much better places to visit.If you're in the area drive an extra 30mins and go to Thornbridge Hall for an extra £1 each - infinitely better.All honest common sense reviews for this property get an astonishing abusive reaction from the onwer.All I can say is stay away, think twice before spending your cash there!
  • We went out of season. Lots of creative work taking place so it will be fabulous in spring. Plan to go again then and add that extra star!
  • Splendid antidote to over commercialised gardens. Lovely people running a lovely garden. Easy free parking. Tea & cakes at sensible prices.
  • A good effort. Nice plantings and nursery. Tea coffee and cakes, but basic catering.
