Been several times now to buy plants and always enjoyed seeing what varieties they have, you always find a new plant you want to try or a plant you have been looking for. The gardens are a nice 20-25 min wander and really enjoyed it,...More

Went here for an open day under the National Gardens Scheme. The gardens are on a nice slope, giving good views from different parts of the garden. Nice planting of different annuals, perennials, bushes and trees. Nice little cafe with good drinks and cakes.

Possibly it was too early to visit due to Spring starting late. On the whole I think it was more of a Nursery than a Garden. If anyone would lie to visit it,watch the single lane road leading up to it, especially nervous drivers.

If you are a garden enthusiast living in Cheshire, Merseyside or Manchester a visit to Bluebell Cottage Gardens is a 'must'. The emphasis is on perennial plants and there is a wide selection (just check out the website) that you will certainly not find in...More

Nestling in the heart of leafy, bluebell-ringed Barrowmore on the fringe of the sleepy Cheshire village of Great Barrow is this delightful little cafe which, in no time at all, has become a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike. Spend an hour or two...More

You find this place along a narrow country lane and approach it by a track - you park in a field and walk the short distance into the nursery. A really friendly (but not over friendly!) greeting from the woman at reception. The garden is...More
