Spring Garden Opening at Bolesworth Castle

Enjoy our beautiful garden at Bolesworth Castle in May.

Opening on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 May 2023 as part of the National Garden Scheme (NGS).

All proceeds will go to the excellent charities supported by the NGS, such as Marie Curie, Macmillan Cancer Support, Hospice UK and more (see the full list of beneficiaries).

Explore Bolesworth’s beautiful and unique gardens in the heart of Cheshire. Walk around the lake, through the castle gardens and discover the stunning spring garden above the castle.

Established by Anthony Barbour in 1986, this woodland garden stretches for half a mile along the sandstone outcrop above the castle and gives unparalleled panoramic views of Cheshire, North Wales and Merseyside. Planted up with Rhododendrons, Camellias and Azaleas and many more spring plants; new paths have been made and the 19th century stone features restored.

This is the first open garden visitor event at Bolesworth since 2008.

The Lost Barn Coffee Roasters will be onsite selling soup, tea, coffee and cake.

You can prebook to attend through the NGS website, or attend on the day and pay on the gate with a cost of £10.00 per person. Children aged 12 and above are welcome, as are well-behaved dogs on leads (please pick-up after them). Please note we regret this garden is not accessible to wheelchairs or buggies.
