For 2020 we are holding two wonderful plant fairs at this stunning garden.

And for the first time ever we will be holding the August fair on a midweek day - Wednesday. We hope this date will appeal to those of you with busy weekends, families looking for something to do in the school holidays and gardening clubs and societies coming on an outing, as well as all you regular plant hunters who can't miss a chance to pick up something special for your garden.

Abbeywood is a 45-acre family estate nestling in the Delamere countryside, right in the heart of Cheshire that has lots to offer including acre upon acre of woodland, informal and formal gardens including the dramatic prairie garden, all different and distinctive in their own right. Plus, you can relax and drink up the atmosphere in the Garden Cafe which serves fine foods for your enjoyment.

There is  a 2km wildlife walk, incorporating 27 acres of mature and newly-planted woodland; a young seven-acre Arboretum with rare deciduous and evergreen tree species; stunning views of the Utkinton Hills

Lunches and refreshments will be served in the garden-side restaurant

Well behaved dogs on leads welcome in the fair and gardens.
