    We were really thrilled return this stunning Cheshire hall for two plant fairs in 2022.

    The fair is on the parkland with the magnificent backdrop of the hall behind us. The entry charge includes access to the picturesque gardens.

    Capesthorne is the much loved home of the Bromley-Davenports, a site on which they and their ancestors, the Wards and Capesthornes, have lived since Doomsday times. The present house, built between 1719 and 1732, replaced an earlier building which stood on the site of the column in the park.

    The estate is a tranquil haven of wildlife, parkland and formal gardens. Through the Milanese gates, opposite the chapel, alongside the estate’s chain of lakes, merge colourful perennials with more unusual 18th century plants, maples and cherry trees.

    "I really enjoyed going to this well run event can’t wait for the next one" – Sue on Facebook

    "My first fair post Covid. Seemed to work well. Enjoyed the garden visit also, Thank you". - Patricia on Facebook
