If you love daffodils, beautiful countryside, and a lovely day out, then come along to The Whitegate Daffodil Farm Open days. Enjoy a guided daffodil walk near the village of Whitegate, in the heart of the Vale Royal, Cheshire with all proceeds to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Guided by Len Tomlinson, you’ll find out about daffodil growing, propogating, competitions, local history of the area, Wildlife, Folklore and farming, and see many varieties of daffodils that have been cultivated for over a century.

The Open days and Daffodil walks are made during the height of the growing season – this year we are Open from Wednesday 30th March until Sunday 10th April 2016 10am – 4pm with a guided tour daily at 10.30am (booking required)  but every year is different as are the varieties that you’ll see!

Come on down for the last afternoon

It’s a glorious day, the daffodils are out in fantastic full show, and it’s the very last afternoon this year to come down and see them for yourself, and all for a very worthy cause!

This year has already been a record-breaking year with more visitors than ever before for the talks and self-guided walks.

If you’ve already been – don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, and share your experiences of your visit – and we’ll be posting up there too the times for next year too in case you missed out this year!

Daffodil Walks are open for 2016

It’s the first day of the daffodil walks today, a fantastic turnout, the weather was kind. We had visitors from far afield today who’ve travelled down to see something different.

A general update for those wondering – we have suffered only a little bit of damage from Storm Katie, daffodils are remarkably resilient, and there’s a multitude of new daffodils to come out right now.

The early varieties are still holding out (all that water keeps them happy!), and the main middle crop is coming out now – it looks like it’s going the be a bumper crop this year. The Flower Record are full of buds for next week, and it’s bound to be a grand show!

The home-made cakes are excellent, and the fairies have had a spring clean and are ready for visitors. Come down and join us between now and the 10th April!

If you’ve already been and enjoyed your visit – follow us at the Daffodil Walks page on Facebook too (share the pics and leave your comments!)

As always we’re grateful for the extra publicity – even though most of our visitors hear about us from their friends and the number grows each year, it’s always nice to reach new people and groups!
