Polite notice for dog walkers We love seeing your dogs but they must be kept on a lead at all times when on site. Please take poo bags home with you, or to the nearest public waste bin.
If you need to travel by car, we recommend you park in a local public car park and walk down to us, however we do also have a car park on site. To find us, type in Lakes Road, Marple, SK6 7DH. Head for Arkwright Road Marple, SK6 7DH. Turn into Faywood Drive and continue straight down to Lakes Road. Our Car Park is at the end on the left. The drive down Lakes Road is very poor due to continued deterioration of the road, so please take care. Our car park is for visitors to The Garden House only. On busy days the car park can get full. Please respect our neighbours by parking responsibly and avoid parking on surrounding roads. We are situated on a bridle path so nearby roads must also be kept clear to allow for passing horses. We are close by to several public car parks, the nearest being on Brabyns Brow (next to The Midland pub). The Garden House can be accessed from here by walking to the end of The Midland car park and following along the Riverside walk. (15 min walk)
