Overview

Grappenhall Heys Walled Garden was originally part of the estate of Thomas Parr, a wealthy banker in Warrington who established his home here around 1830. After a turbulent period of demise, the walled garden was saved and transformed back to its former glory. Facilities include a pleasure garden with 3 ponds, a fully stocked kitchen garden, a cafe which is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday serving a selection of freshly made food using, where possible, produce from the kitchen garden when available. The site, owned by Grappenhall & Thelwall Parish Council, is open Tuesday-Sunday and admission is free. Opening times: Tuesday - Thursday from 1pm - 4pm (Garden only), Friday 9am - 4pm, Saturday & Sunday 10am - 5pm (Garden and Fountain Room Cafe). The site has disabled access and toilet facilities.

Beautiful gardens, very well kept and cared for. Great to explore on a delightful short walk or just sit back, relax and enjoy the surroundings. At weekends a cafe serves good food.

A lovely walled garden to walk around and explore and also to see how their vegetables and fruit are doing. Don't miss their bee hives in the corner and the walk at the back of the ponds too

Yes you can take a dog but please place it on a lead so we can protect the crops growing in the kitchen garden and the wildlife (such as birds) near the pond. There are dog bowls of water near the glasshouses. Whilst dogs... More
