We are really thrilled to be able to return to Cholmondeley Castle in tranquil rural Cheshire for what deserves to be a firm date in all plant lovers' diaries

The romantic castle - a product of the early 19th century - stands on a high rise above a lake. The castle is surrounded by sweeping lawns and a variety of mature trees, including cedars of Lebanon, oak, and chestnut.

The gardens surrounding the castle provide a lovely mix of colour and height, with intriguing walks around the lake. There is a temple water garden, rose garden, a variety of mixed borders. Plantings are planned to provide colour at all times of the year.

There is a children's play area and picnic site.

Entry to the fair, gardens and nature trail. (Sorry the farm animals are no longer open to the public).

Tea rooms open for coffee, light lunches, home made teas, ice creams and snacks

Special Price (for this event only) £3.50 (half std price)
