Bluebell Cottage Gardens and Nursery

Tucked away down a quiet country lane, this rural gem is one of Cheshire's best kept secrets.

Owned and managed by former BBC Gardener of the Year, Sue Beesley, Bluebell Cottage Gardens, nursery, wildflower meadows and bluebell woods make a perfect half day out for keen gardeners, wildlife enthusiasts, or anyone in need of a break from the whirlwind of modern life.

The nursery and gardens are open Wednesday to Sunday 10 am to 5pm, plus Bank Holiday Mondays. The nursery, gardens and tea room will be closed on Saturday 2nd August for a family event. We will reopen as normal on Sunday 3rd August. Tea, coffee and cakes are available from our little blue tea room with comfy seats and a selection of gardening books to browse. Walkers are also welcome to park and explore the lovely local countryside. We look forward to welcoming you.

The garden is full of colour and looking quite wonderful in the summer sunshine. We're open Wed-Sun 10-5 except for Saturday August 2nd when we are closed all day for a family event.

The gardens and nursery are now open 10-5 Wednesday to Sunday. The meadows are looking especially pretty at the moment with a field of golden buttercups to greet visitors.
