Betley Court Bluebell Walk 2024 (Sun)

Join us for a leisurely stroll through the beautiful bluebell-filled grounds of Betley Court for our 2024 annual walk!The 10 acre gardens of Betley Court, a Georgian country house on the Staffordshire/Cheshire border are open for the annual Bluebell Walk. Visitors can enjoy the formal flowerbeds, a paddock walk and a romantic woodland walk around the lake. The gardens are associated with several notable landscape designers. William Emes laid the land out with views towards Betley Mere in 1785. Later, William Barron, "The Tree Mover" re-designed the formal gardens, laying out a raised terrace and lowered lawn and moving the magnificent Cedar of Lebanon to its current position. Complimentary hot drink, snack and self-guided map included in the ticket price. Children under 15 years free. Well-behaved dogs on leads welcome. Please note: Paths are gravel or turf,which some users may find difficult. The woodland walk is not wheelchair or pram accessible, and has steep, narrow paths.
