The Rowlinson family have lived at Abbeywood since 1987, during which time they have made many improvements and additions to the gardens. The year starts in February with many varieties of Galanthus in Jane's Garden, followed by other Spring favourites, Erythroniums and Trilliums, to name but a few of her rare plants. The Main Garden is divided into separate areas. The formal layout gives way to naturalistic planting within. Early May starts with Tulips followed by Alliums and Camassia. Seasonal interest continues until around mid September - weather depending. The Christopher Lloyd inspired Exotic Garden, designed around the remnants of the old vegetable garden, is filled with Dahlias, Cannas, Banana and other tender perennials. These continue until the first frosts. The Young Arboretum is planted with rare evergreen and deciduous trees for year round interest. A 2km, wildlife walk incorporates the existing and new woodland on the 45 acre grounds.

Went today for coffee but as there was only 1 person serving (who was working hard) the service was slow as the other girl was clearing up from a few tables but without a tray and was carrying 2 items at a time! Other people coming in and waited too & why on earth does there need to be a... More

I stumbled across Abbeywood on line looking for somewhere to experience the autumn colours on a lovely sunny late October day and was absolutely blown away by what we found. If you are gardener, interested in trees or want somewhere to sit in front of a woodturner having a tasty drink or meal then this is the place for you.... More

Had our wedding here on Friday 7th October and am still being inundated with comments about it being the best ever wedding from all my guests. The level of personal service was absolutely flawless and could never have pulled off such an effortless event without the fantastic support of all the staff. Lauren/Jessica/Alicia/Caleb all out did themselves on the day.... More

One might consider the 9-0 admission fee for two pensioners, excessive,but my wife and I thought that all in all,it was money ,well spent. Where else could one bask in the sunshine,peace and quiet of the Cheshire countryside,other than here where even this late on in the season,the gardens still had much colour and the potential to take ones breath...

Called for lunch and coffee and cakes then a walk in the gardens that cost an extra £9.50 l think that's a bit over the top but I would still recommend you pay them a visit 😊

We held our daughter's wedding at Abbeywood last weekend and couldn't have wished for a more beautiful setting and the wonderfully helpful and friendly team of staff who were the most accommodating bunch of people you could hope to work with. Along with some of our family, we stayed in the ten bed apartment on the top floor of the... More

My husband and I returned from Abbeywood on Sunday after attending a friends wedding and we can not praise this venue highly enough. We were lucky enough to be staying at Abbeywood and we were delighted with our accommodation, it was huge, beautifully decorated with possibly the most comfortable hotel bed we have ever stayed in. From arrival to departure,... More

We visited here recently and apart from the wonderful kitchen garden of which we were envious, the stand out feature of the day was the helpfulness of the day. I was breastfeeding and one waitress appeared with water saying she thought I'd probably want some. The kitchen were happy to provide dairy free food (and even had dairy free ice... More
