We are really thrilled to be able to return to Cholmondeley Castle in tranquil rural Cheshire for what promises to be a special date in 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.

"It was a lovely day....Great to have the fairs back. Beautiful setting too, azaleas, magnolias and blue bells were prolific" - Karen on Facebook

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 anda variety of mixed borders. Plantings are planned to provide colour at all times of the year.

In spring, visitors will be wowed by the flowering shrubs and massed plantings of bulbs

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