Rode Hall, Scholar Green, Cheshire, ST7 3QP


Welcome to Rode Hall

Bluebells bring Springtime Joy to Rode
Although renowned for its Snowdrop Walks and Humphry Repton landscaped gardens, Rode Hall is also a feast for the eyes throughout April and May when our bluebells and spring flowers are at their best.  Rare Rhododendrons, Azaleas and the Chilean Fire Bush are a blaze of colour under planted with Primula Japonica and Lily of the Valley.  All this is seen against a background of Bluebells shimmering in the grass and in the Old Wood adjoining the wild flower garden which is really quite stunning.
