The gardens were a bit overgrown and the owner really should have a bit of a tidy up. A lot of long grass to walk through, but there is some interest. The indoor swimming pool is green and grubby and the plants around the edge...More

Reading the leaflet about Shipley Gardens, it promised 30 acres of wild flowers. What we found, was run down buildings and the walk around the overgrown garden took all of 5 minutes. Save your money !!

Firstly before I start I must say that the sign 'Shipley Gardens' is a bit misleading now. Maybe it was once a lovely garden to go around but to be honest I think it is a lot more interesting now! My boyfriend & I had...More

We had seen the brochure for this garden & it looked good on paper. The reality is that the old man who owns it is still trying to live in the past. Which is a pity as he is most genuine in his love for...More
