On leaving the gardens you first pass through an area of fruit farms, before joining the Sandstone Trail, a long-distance path of 34 miles in length. This leads you through an area of farmland and into Delamere Forest, an ancient hunting forest.

Before you take the long walk back along Yeld Lane why not stop for a cup of tea and a slice of cake at the Eddisbury Farm Tea Shop – a perfect way to end your day!

Boasting year-round interest, Mount Pleasant Gardens provide an ideal opportunity to meander through fine displays of traditional mixed planting, including a number of pond with waterside species. Six acres of landscaped gardens with water features.

Cascading down a gently-sloping hillside, the gardens also offer outstanding views of the Cheshire Plain.

These gardens, recently opened under the National Gardens Scheme, provide the ideal opportunity to wander through exquisite displays of traditional mixed planting and ponds, surrounded by waterside species.

A recent addition to Mount pleasant is the stunning Japanese-style garden, which is an impressive 100 square meters in size on two levels with a pond and waterfall, and a gravel garden.
