Rhododendron Festival

April 1st, 2019 - May 31st, 2019

From the minute you cross the bridge on your way up the winding drive you will begin to appreciate the beauty of the Rhododendrons and Azaleas that abound throughout the grounds of Cringletie. Wherever you wander in the 28 acres you will find nature at her best and build up an appetite or walk off a sumptuous lunch or afternoon tea. Talking of tea you may like to have one with our compliments and all you have to do is name all the varieties of Rhododendrons and Azaleas that grow within the Cringletie estate and marvel at the depth of colours that spring out at you.
