‪The cost of parking is too high if you just want to walk your dog as you have to pay for two hours when I only need an hour at the most just like Derby city council take take take‬

‪Lovely gardens‬
אוג׳ 2021
‪Been many times before but this time were able to get into the Old English Garden which is beautiful and very restful. Managed to get inside part of the castle as well to admire the wall paintings. Lots of parking and also accessible from the Derwent path and from the Alvaston foot path. Lake, gardens, cafe and lots of places to play. Also lots of seats.‬

‪Beautiful day out‬
ספט׳ 2021
‪Beautiful grounds to walk around. There is a lake, walkways, wooded area, open space and lots more. Wish we'd had more time to explore.
Cafe wasn't open on a Friday afternoon though which we thought was strange and ticket machine was very slow.
Great place though which we will go back to.‬

‪What a lovely place to visit! From the lake to the architectural beauties this has something for everyone. We were lucky enough to visit while the Epic Forest exhibition (in the castle's Gothic Hall) by Artist in Residence Howie Johnson was on. Stunning location for such incredible art! Howie was there and was a lovely lovely man to speak to, as well as incredibly talented. Well worth a visit and also a pop into the cafe area for delicious sweet treats‬

‪Good free day‬
משפחה • אוג׳ 2021
‪Visited today with 2 dogs and 3 children aged 4,6 & 12.

Parked in car park £4.80 for all day.

Play area is located close to park and is a fairly small park after 20mins we went for a walk around the well maintained grounds. Visited the castle although didn't go inside, we are our picnic on a picnic table located close by.

Shop was well priced and toilets were clean.

Dog friendly although needs more poo bins. ‬

‪A wonderful country park‬
משפחה • יוני 2021
‪A lovely country park on the outskirts of Derby in the village of Elvaston. Car parking is available for a fee. Plenty of lovely walks around the park, somegreat woodland trails and opportunity to do outdoor learning with young children. We took binoculars and insect set which the children loved hunting for monibeasts.
The rhododendron garden was beautiful and fully of life. On the bridge we saw friendly birds very close up eating seeds. We spotted rabbits in the open field. We didnt use the cafe due to covid but it was busy and looked pleasant. We found some carved tree stumps as the three bears from goldilocks which was great for role play.
Wonderful country park for families with children and for individuals or couples who want a pleasant walk with nature.‬

‪Could be a fantastic attraction with some investment.‬
זוגות • מאי 2021
‪Visited for the first time to enjoy the gardens.

Parking was ample on the weekday that we went, but there was a long trek to the parking meters as the one near our car was out of order. The meter we did use was difficult to make a card payment as the symbols on the buttons had been worn away. A poor quality machine if pay and display has only been in force for a year.

Anyway, the gardens are very expansive. Lots of places to picnic. A shame there are not more benches, especially around the lake.

We did find the parterre garden was quite uninteresting with no flowers and only uncut grass between the clipped hedges. The walled garden too could have been so much more inspired in it’s planting.

That said we did have a lovely full day here. The house, church and all the surrounding buildings are so beautiful. If the Council put some effort into doing the insides of the buildings up and getting some quality gardeners this place could be a real money spinner for the local area.‬
