Chris Beardshaw, award-winning garden designer and TV presenter and Cheshire’s Gardens of Distinction ambassador explains why he loves Cheshire’s gardens:
Cheshire is such a diverse county, boasting everything from mountains and moors, to rolling pastures and wetlands. And as I know from my own experience, this inspiring variety is echoed in Cheshire's many open gardens and the multitude of different experiences they offer.
As well as the obvious beauty of the natural landscapes, it is the broad spectrum and magnificence of Cheshire's many historic gardens and the vision of their gardeners past and present, which entices me again and again.
There is also much to explore in each garden - each one is different every day and that isn't just in terms of flora and fauna! From events, arts and culture, to food and drink, plus activities for the family, Cheshire's gardens offer a full visitor experience whatever time of year you choose to visit.
