In less than 15 years, 150,000 snowdrops, 40,000 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.
The garden is open Wednesday – Sunday from Friday 15 February – Sunday 10 March 2019 (closed Monday and Tuesdays) from 11 am – 4 pm.
Good parking and mown grass paths. Entry £ 5.00 (children under 16 free).
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.
