The Burrows Gardens is a haven of peace and tranquility just off the A52 Ashbourne to Derby road near the villages of Kirk Langley and Brailsford.
It's ideal for a gentle stroll on a warm summer morning
The garden is set out in a series of smaller gardens and walkways each with a unique vista
The garden has been lovingly tended by Mr Dalton the owner of the house who was happy to chat to visitors about his vision of the garden and what it means to him.
We spent ages wandering around - every corner of the garden is a delight.
Below is the Temple Garden
and the Hydrangea garden also known as mini Cornwall.
It was wonderful to sit on the bench surrounded by Hydrangeas and Agapanthus - two of my favourites.
There is also a plant sales area and I would recommend trying some of the homemade cake with your morning coffee served in the barn or courtyard.
We had a wonderful time and there were only a handful of other visitors so we more or less had the place to ourselves. The garden opens in season between 10.30a.m. and 4.30pm. on Sunday, Tuesday and Friday and also on one Monday each month between April and September for the National Garden Scheme.
