Discover a fascinating garden
Cascades Gardens is a beautiful and interesting garden to visit in the historic village of Bonsall near Matlock.
Ideal for garden enthusiasts, plantsmen and for those who just want to relax in the beautiful natural surroundings and visit a garden in Derbyshire and the Peak District.
Come and explore this fascinating garden which originates from the 18th century and surrounds the ruins of a corn mill, with pond and mill race, canal and an old lead mine. Cascades gardens is set on many levels with a new “garden room” around every corner-prennial flower beds, roses, waterside planting and alpine and conifer rockeries. There is a great view from the cliff top path. Every season brings new surprises with hosts of snowdrops, hellebores, hostas, daffodils, unusual perennial flowers, shrubs, trees and conifers.
The informal gardens have been designed to blend in with the spectacular natural landscape of rocks, cliffs and woodland.The Bonsall brook runs through the garden and flows over the ruined corn mill and many waterfalls which gives the house it’s name. In the winter the wate can be a torrent and in the summer a gentle trickle.
A wide range of plants in the garden are available for sale in the nursery.
