Rode Hall’s bluebell walks ready to shine

banner-RodeGuideImages-Heritage-House-Gp-046Spring brings many wonders and one of the most pleasurable sights, at this time of year, are woodlands packed with bluebells and other spring flowers.

At Cheshire’s Rode Hall & Gardens, visitors will be able to enjoy one of the finest bluebell walks in the north west. From Saturday 30th April until Sunday 8th May, the gardens and woods at the hall will be open for visitors to enjoy Rode’s carpets of ancient bluebells.

side-Bluebells-2007Joe-Wainwright-001For the first time, this year, visitors will be able to use a recently discovered path through the Old Wood, previously used by villagers walking to the house in the 1800s. There is plenty to discover from a magical 200 year old grotto, hidden in the Wild Garden, a waterfall and lake.

Explore the different enchanting landscapes that the Wilbraham family have enjoyed for over 300 years. Hunt for willow animal sculptures, walk through the shimmering bluebell carpets covering the ground of the Old Wood and experience the stunning wildflowers in the Wild Garden.

Spring is one of the finest times to visit Rode’s Grade II listed park and gardens, which were designed by Humphry Repton. Randle Baker Wilbraham, owner of Rode Hall is looking forward to welcoming visitors of all ages to come and experience the bluebell walks: “We hope that everyone will have a special day out, take in the walks, and enjoy our Tea Room. We love sharing this unforgettable time of year,” he says.
