Traditional Family run Gardens, Tea Room & Large Plant Nursery. This is a must for the keen gardener and wildlife lover. The Gardens are set beyond the Nursery and once walking through the walled archway the magic begins. The gardens are set around a tranquil pool with island pathways and wooden bridges leading to various features. This Monet-style landscape has a wealth of moisture-loving plants, including iris and primulas. Drier areas feature unusual perennials and rarer trees and shrubs. Woodland paths meander through shade and bog plantings with views across the pool to the cottage gardens. Outdoor Theatres and Weddings are also held here throughout the season. Also ideal for Cyclists and dog walkers as very close to the Delamere Loop and Sandstone Trail. Ladies Afternoon Teas, Group Tours and Workshops are also held throughout the season. Open March to October. Out of Season bookings taken for special events and groups. See our Website for more details on upcoming events.

Broccoli and Stilton soup was ok, seasoned but no taste of Stilton and a shop bought bun with butter too hard to spread. Needs to be big thick slices of granary and spreadable butter in a pot. Not worth the £5.95. Sandwich was good, not...More
