2016 has been announced as the Year of the English Garden by VisitEngland, to celebrate the country’s fabulous gardens and to mark the 300th anniversary of ‘Capability’ Brown.
Cheshire’s Gardens of Distinction showcase the very best English gardens have to offer; from stately homes to secret gardens there are over 20 to explore, promising a kaleidoscope of colour whatever time of year you visit.
Several of Cheshire’s Gardens have been featured by VisitEngland in their headline gardens to visit. The RHS Flower Show at Tatton Park is the gardening event of the year in Cheshire; Cheshire’s Gardens will once again be attending with feature gardens and back to backs. Arley Hall and Gardens has been chosen as one of the top 20 Best English Gardens, with their herbaceous borders earning a mention. Both Tatton Park and the gardens at Trentham Estate are congratulated as two of the best for group visits. Lyme Park has also earned a well deserved spot in England's most beautiful filming locations as Pemberley in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.
There's a garden for every season; in Spring Trentham Gardens is well worth a visit, Ness Botanic Gardens are beautiful in Summer, in Autumn the duckery at Cholmondeley Castle comes into its own and the Winter garden at Dunham Massey is spectacular at the end of the year.
In 2016 there will be many fantastic events to celebrate this monumental year, from the Snowdrop Walks in February to the RHS Flower Show at Tatton Park in July.
If you’re looking for the perfect place to stay on your visit, from indulgent holiday cottages to chic hotels and spas you’ll be spoilt for choice in Cheshire.
