If you love daffodils, Fairies, 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.

 

 

 

The Open days and Daffodil walks are made during the height of the growing season                                                           – this year we are open from Wednesday 28th March until Sunday 8th April 2018 10am – 4pm.

You can enjoy a self guided walk at your own pace (following a map and information points) or join a guided tour daily at 10.30am (booking required)  *

For the little ones follow the ‘Foxwist Fairy Trail’ and see the Magic Oak & Fairy Village. 

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

* Walks in the afternoon are available by special arrangement for pre-booked  groups.

From the Fairy Queen

A message from the Fairy Queen!

The children were so good last year that I’ve invited more fairy friends to live where the daffodils grow!

Daffodil Walks for 2019

Walks this year will be daily from 27th March to 7th April inclusive, with tours each day at 10:30am, and walks at any time from 10am – 3pm. For more details see the booking page

An update on the daffodils – the growth seems to be inline with the last few years, with Rijnvelds Early Sensation in flower now, and Magnificence and Ice Follies will be out in early March.

Six thousand new bulbs planted for everyone to enjoy, even if the season begins early we have varieties that flower from December until mid May, so always lots to see.

There are about six hundred different varieties including rare specimens going back to when Adam was a lad, and also hundreds of unnamed seedlings bred by the Old Chap!

New Planting

I’ve just finished planting up around 6,000 more bulbs for our visitors to enjoy, so these should add more colour and variety in the years to come. Get your planting done while it’s still nice enough out!

The fairies are still very active due to the recent mild weather, but with a cold snap on the way they’ll soon be hibernating, ready to be refreshed for the spring.
