Woodland Walks With Bluebells

Combermere Abbey’s much loved Woodland Walks With Bluebells will return this year, running for the second time over a number of days as opposed to just a one off event. The walks will run from Saturday 23rd April to Saturday 21st May. They will run at 10am & 1pm every Saturday and Sunday. Guests will need to book tickets in advance on the Combermere Abbey website, with the booking system set to be launched imminently. Parking will be available at Park View Business Centre to start the walk, and refreshments will be available at newly opened Old Piggery Café.

The annual Woodland Walks With Bluebells are a very special time at Combermere Abbey, one of the few periods throughout the year where this private estate opens its grounds for a stroll, the only other times being for its tours, unless you are a holiday accommodation guests. The walk is very dog friendly and furry friends are welcomed along at no extra charge. Sensible footwear is recommended and guests are advised to follow the walker’s charter to be fair to both fellow guests and the environment.

Based in the heart of the countryside, nestled on the Cheshire/Shropshire border, Combermere Abbey is a cherished local gem that welcomes visitors from all over the world. Those travelling from further afield to enjoy the Woodland Walk can stay overnight in a self-catering, dog-friendly holiday cottage or one of two North Wing luxury B&B suites. The walk comes at no extra charge for guests.

Ticket prices will be priced at £6 for adults, £3 for children (under 16) and will be free for babies and dogs.
