Group Visits To The Garden

We welcome the opportunity to give tours of the garden to groups that to date have included the W.I, U3A, and other Gardening and Horticultural groups.

We also offer group retreats in our B&B and meditation garden. Click here.

The garden is 4 acres and takes about 45 minutes to go round.The main part of the garden is flat and accessible. Tea coffee and home made cake can be provided to groups of up to 50 at a time for £5 per person. Larger groups can be accommodated in 2 sessions.Sandwiches or “mini” ploughmans lunches can be provided by arrangement. Prices on request.

Alan Clements the owner is very knowledgeable about gardening and can give a brief introductory talk about the history and highlights of the garden if required. The garden is full of historical interest with a ruined corn mill, old lead mine, 80 ft cliffs, streams, ponds and canal. The view from the top of the cliff scans the surrounding countryside and gives a spectacular birds eye view of the garden.

A nursery offers a wide range of perennial flowers and shrubs. Our specialities include Hebe, Hellebores, Hostas and many different shrubs.

The garden has a garden guide based around the 12 garden benches. Each bench provides a different view of our peaceful garden. Often the trickle of water can often be heard. Ideal for sitting and reflection.

A great way to spend a couple of hours, Cascades Gardens is full of interest and gives you a chance to relax in beautiful surroundings with the refreshment of your choice.

Parking:  Along the garden wall in the road is quite safe. Cars and Coaches can use the village lorry park at the end of the garden by the entrance.
