Experience one of the finest Bluebell Walks in the North West at Rode Hall & Gardens in Cheshire. A magical stroll for all the family, it is one of the finest times to visit Rode’s Grade II listed park and gardens, designed by Humphry Repton, and soak up the incredible colours of bluebells and spring flowers at their best. Walk through the shimmering bluebell carpets covering the ground of the Old Wood, experience the stunning wildflowers in the Wild Garden and the blaze of colours from rare early Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Chilean Fire Bushes. Enjoy the tranquil views over Rode Pool and unrivalled vistas of the beautiful Cheshire and Staffordshire Countryside.
Rode’s bluebells are predominantly the endangered and protected native ancient variety which flower on one side of the stalk, are strongly perfumed and can also appear as a white or pinkish flower.
Highlights of a visit also include the two acre Walled Garden, resplendent in spring blossom from the many varieties of pear, apple and plum trees and with an abundance of vegetable seedlings.
Visitors can also buy Rode Hall’s fragrant Lily of the Valley and bright primulas and pelargoniums to plant at home.
Families will love exploring and playing in the different enchanting landscapes. Children’s imagination can also be sparked by the willow animal sculpture trail, 200 year old Grotto hidden in the Wild Garden and the Waterfall. Hunt for the willow animal sculptures along the walk, spot butterflies amongst the flowers and heron and carp in the stews and lake.
Gardeners shouldn’t miss the opportunity to see the emerging fruit and vegetables in the Walled Garden and snap up the rare opportunity to buy Rode Hall’s Lily of the Valley, primulas and pelargoniums to plant at home.
