Sugnall Walled Garden

Saturday 22nd April 2017

Sunday 25th June 2017

Times: 10am - 4pm

Entry to fair and walled garden £1.00

In 2017 we are back for two great plant fairs at this lovely, friendly venue

The 2 acre Walled Kitchen Garden at Sugnall Hall near Eccleshall Staffs dates from 1738 and has been restored as a working kitchen garden producing fruit and vegetables to serve in the tearoom and for homemade jams and chutneys on sale at the garden.

The network of paths and tracks, starting from the lane outside the walled garden, takes walkers right to the heart of our rural idyll. There are several kissing gates to extend our network and provide a number of circular walks of different lengths past the pools and, in April through the bluebells. Ask at the walled kitchen garden for maps.

Featured on the BBC series Great British Garden Revival

For our April event visitors will also be able to roam the bluebell woods.
