One of last summer's most popular destinations in Cheshire has returned for 2021.

Last year, the National Trust’s tenanted Little Heath Farm worked closely with the team at nearby Dunham Massey to introduce a new crop of sunflowers that became a hit on social media. The aim of the project was to benefit local wildlife, diversify business for the farm, and provide a cheery sight for local walkers.

The field lies to the north west edge of the Dunham Forest Golf and Country Club and south of the Little Heath Farm, the field is only accessible via the farm yard and the entry fee is £2 per person or if you arrive by car, it is £5 per vehicle. The money go towards maintaining the crop, and manage capacity of the visitor numbers. The meadow will be open Friday to Sunday, 10am–5pm until early September
