More than 130,000 snowdrops along with crocus and winter iris create a delightful winter walk through the gardens and woodland of Brightwater Gardens.

Brightwater Gardens is one of the country’s newest snowdrop and winter gardens.

Over the past 12 years 130,000 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.

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.
