DALTON HALL, rarely open to the public, will be opening its gates for the 4th Flower Power Fair on Sunday 2 July.  We had a brilliant plant fair there in 2016  – thankfully the rain stayed off, it was the most glorious summer’s day and the gardens were full of keen customers.

I hope you will come along and visit this beautiful estate.  The Walled Garden is changing by the month and the family have exciting plans to make it very much a show stopper for the future.

Meanwhile we shall be able to view the wonderful wild flower areas, awash with bees, butterflies and insects and of course, the lawned area will be full of quality plant stands from all corners of Yorkshire and beyond.

Katrina Hotham will no doubt be slaving over a very hot cooker again – she makes the most amazing cakes and biscuits and William will be in the car park to greet you all.  A real family affair.

We have a full compliment of plant nurseries attending including Simon from Northern Ark Nursery, Ron from Roanne Nursery, Phil from Summerfield Plant Nursery, the lovely Gill selling her Lavender and Pinks, Brambling House Nursery, Liz from Garden Blooms based in Fishlake, Gatekeeper Nursery (famous for their climbers and shrubs), and a new nursery, Fayrefield Horticulture & Landscape together with garden accessory, The Forge.


WE OPEN 11am – 4pm.

DON’T FORGET TO BRING CASH TO ALL THE PLANT FAIRS. MOST GROWERS AND SMALL NURSERIES DO NOT USE CARD FACILITIES and some of the venues are not near the old “hole in the wall” so don’t be disappointed, bring real money with you for all the plant fairs.


We open from 11am – 4pm and admission is £3.50 (children free) Disabled – please follow signs.

NO DOGS in the garden please.



Directions:  South Dalton, turn into West End, drive past the Pipe & Glass Inn and follow the signs through the park.  No dogs in the Walled Garden please so if its a hot, sunny day, please leave them at home.  If you buy lots of plants, you will be able to drive up nearer to the fair to load up.
