Brightwater gardens welcomes visitors for its annual snowdrop walk from mid-February.
Over the past 15 years, 160,000 snowdrops, 45,000 crocus, winter irises, and a selection of other bulbs have been planted to create a ¼ mile winter walk leading through the garden and woodland. There are banks of willows, dogwoods and winter flowering shrubs, a grove of gleaming white Himalayan birch and pleached red-twigged limes to delight the visitor. Nearby St. Helen’s church attributed to Capability Brown is well worth a visit.
Snowdrops opening hours: 12th February – 1st March 11am – 4pm (closed Monday and Tuesday) warm refreshments available.
Good parking and mown grass paths. Entry £ 5.00 (children under 16 £2.00).
Enjoy the warmth of the log fire in the Hay Barn where delicious soup, sandwiches and home-made cakes are served to round off your visit.
Wrap up warmly (please wear good outdoor footwear) and come and enjoy the snowdrops at Brightwater Gardens.
