About the garden

Owned by
Harry & Lynda Rowlinson

If you are looking for days out in Cheshire, then Abbeywood Estate has lots to offer including vast woodlands, 2.4ha (6 acres) of informal and formal gardens – all different and distinctive in their own right – plus you can relax and enjoy the atmosphere in the Garden Cafe, which serves fine homegrown and local quality foods. 

Visitors will also find a 1.2-mile wildlife walk, incorporating 10.9ha (27 acres) of mature and newly planted woodland; a young 2.8ha (7 acre) arboretum with rare deciduous and evergreen tree species as well as beautiful views of the Utkinton Hills.

Abbeywood Estate is the perfect place to while away an hour or two, celebrate a happy event or spend an afternoon relaxing.
