Explore the stunning countryside of the Weaver Valley, passing through a shady wood filled with bluebells and wood anemones in spring. Enjoy the wonderful views of the surrounding farmland and the River Weaver itself, look out for lapwings that nest in the area. Marvel at the engineering of Dutton Locks and return via the tranquillity of Trent & Mersey Canal.

The 1.5 acre Bluebell Cottage Gardens is a delight from spring to autumn with a huge range of planting, both familiar and rare. Adjacent is Lodge Lane Nursery, an RHS partner nursery specialising in hardy herbaceous perennials, with a typical stock of over 1500 varieties.

Together with the 3 acre wildflower meadow and 2 acre bluebell woods, the gardens offer an ideal half day out for garden lovers and non-gardeners alike. Refreshments are available in the nursery and there is plenty of seating throughout the gardens.
