The Garden Landscape Guide

Myddelton House Gardens

A nineteenth century house, used by the LVRPA, with a garden which was made famous by the plantsman E A Bowles. It fell into decay and is being restored as an example of a twentieth century plantsman's garden. Bowles was born here, in 1865, and died here, in 1954. He published books on this garden and on growing crocus, nacissus and colchicum.

    An absolute gem! Beautiful, peaceful gardens with plenty to see whatever the season. Love the new greenhouses which opened in May 2012.Semms to get better and better each time I visit and the cafe is a must for delicious snacks.

    We visited Myddelton House & Gardens last weekend, thought our young niece & nephew might find it boring, but everybody absolutely loved it! What a beautiful place, so relaxed and pretty, sat in the lovely courtyard cafe for drinks and enjoyed the exhibition about the house and gardens. We will definitely be back soon!!! :)

    Entry to Myddelton House Gardens is now free, which means it easily earns four stars. Though still is the process of renovation, the slight unkemptness of the garden actually enhances the relaxed atmosphere of the garden. There is a free returnable guide and the information boards dotted throughout the garden are very helpful. There is also an attractive tearoom and picnic area.
