Lea Gardens

Lea Matlock Derbyshire DE4 5GH

The season is short here but I urge you to blaze a trail to this wonderful hidden garden which has more colour than a Hockney palette. Sited on the remains of a medieval millstone quarry, there are around four acres on a wooded hillside. Along with rare azaleas and rhododendrons, there's a huge variety of alpines, acers and heathers; all this and long views over the hills towards Matlock. Take your four-footed friend: 'good natured dogs on leads allowed'. The tea shop is run by a very talented young baker and barista Sarah Beet, so don't expect a bit of dusty flapjack and a weak cup of tea; I guarantee you won't be able to resist her homemade cakes and excellent espresso.
