About the garden

Our tranquil Walled Garden dates back to 1717 and is one of the earliest examples of Heated Walls in the Country. The Georgian bed design is planted full of flowers loved by pollinators over the summer months. Within the walls is also our herb garden, dedicated to our two famous naturalists John Ray and Francis Willughby and our working Smithy. Our gardens also contain a heritage orchard and a short lakeside walk through seasonal displays of snowdrops, daffodils, and bluebells.

Visitors are also welcome to explore our Historic Hall, lovingly restored by Volunteers with the oldest building dating back to 1285 and hidden behind our beautiful Tudor Barn can relax in The Courtyard with a popular coffee shop and a selection of small independent retailers and businesses. Throughout the year we hold a whole host of events, from history and Garden tours to family activities.

The House and Gardens are easily accessed and have plenty of parking from the main road. The gardens are worth a walk around in them selves and the small courtyard shopping area is great for coffee and food as well as local artisans. You can easily wall from here to the RSVP reserve at Middleton Lakes and enjoy the woodland and lake walls. Everything is relatively good for wheel chair and disabled access

What a lovely place I had never heard of it before but there was a Vdub show there so we decided to visit . I am so glad we did it was so reasonably priced to go in but it was beautiful . It has so much history attached to it and is run by a charity and all the work and restoration has been done by volunteers . Plus it has a Peel museum inside dedicated to the family of sir Robert Peel . And John Ray one of Britain's first naturalists lived there . Amazing place ,the gardens are beautiful ,the cafe is lovely and again very reasonably priced well worth a visit a hidden gem .

Plant weekend. I think there were more of the gardens and the lake that I missed today. But the plant sale had some really different plants. The topiary animals were really cute. And I really liked the ram. The forget and fused glass art was also an interesting addition. Next time, planning a trip to the tearoom too.

Middleton Hall and Gardens are a huge pleasure to visit. The house has a long and interesting history, and with each room devoted to a different topic there is plenty to hold your interest. My favourite parts of the house were the old kitchens, the magnificent dollshouse, and the old stills for making medicines. I was impressed by the amazing Peel Museum, which is a large room staffed by volunteers stuffed to the gunwhales with Peel memorabilia and archive material. This in itself is well worth the entrance fee. Outside I loved the walled garden and herb garden, and paths wound through the orchard leading to seats by the lake. It really was a charming day out, especially when paired with a visit to the Courtyard shops and cafe. Highly recommended, and it can only get better as the restoration continues. My only slight reservation would be the lack of room wardens who could have helped us to understand the house better (the Hall seeks additional volunteers), and we did notice that a few of the interpretation boards were a bit confusing or misleading. But these are such minor criticisms that I can't possibly drop a star!

It a lovely house, with even nicer gardens. They always have little events throughout the open time of the year. I went when they had The Mercedes-Benz Club S Class Festival so there was a old and new models of Mercedes S class cars. They do markets for each season and also a Halloween after dark night which is really good. Some events it does recommend buying tickets beforehand others like the event today it is not needed.
