Nestling in the heart of leafy, bluebell-ringed Barrowmore on the fringe of the sleepy Cheshire village of Great Barrow is this delightful little cafe which, in no time at all, has become a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike. Spend an hour or two...More

Hello! Lovely of you to leave such a glowing review, but I think you might have the wrong place! This is Bluebell Cottage Gardens near Dutton (a few miles from Frodsham). We do have a little tea room but just for tea and cakes. We...More

Good choice of perennials at reasonable prices. Bit limited on other plants though. We liked it would go again. There are gardens (for a small fee) to look around, we didn't as the weather was not too primising, next visit maybe.

Lovely garden, with a few different sections. Tea room and toilet as well. Very large nursery and plant selling operation! Pay only entry into garden. What a wonderful delight the bluebell wood was! We discovered it at just the right time!
