A spectacular pageant of Spring bulbs starting with snowdrops followed by Lent lillies, heritage daffodils, winter aconites and snake's head fritillaries. Open Sundays and half term only.
Beginning in early February the Spring pageant will include wonderful snowdrops, Cyclamen coum, and Crocus tommasinianus, continuing through March and early April with drifts of Lent lilies and Doddington's unique collection of heritage daffodils (including rare Edwardian varieties), winter aconites and snake’s head fritillaries until May.
The spring bulb pageant was started in the 1950s by owner Claire’s grandparents Ralph and Antonia Jarvis. Around 150,000 bulbs have been planted or moved in the last 25 years.
Claire added a further 5,000 snowdrops to the nature trail with some money she inherited from her maternal Grandmother Cecily Mathias. ‘Cecily’s Snowdrops’ have now been enjoyed by visitors since 2005.
Make a day of your visit by exploring Doddington Hall's farm shop, cafe, and award-winning restaurant too.
