Colesbourne Park Snow Drop

England's Greatest Snowdrop Garden

Colesbourne Park

England’s Greatest Snowdrop Garden


We have had a great deal of rain in the past 12 hours and the gardens and parking are very wet. Please be advised that we may not be able to keep the car park area open as even now parking will be restricted. We would also advise that very sadly, disabled and wheelchair access is not suitable today, Sunday 18th Feb. We are keeping our fingers crossed that next weekend we will be fine and dry!



Happy New Year! We are looking forward to welcoming our visitors to the snowdrop collection at Colesbourne Gardens at the end of January. Please be advised that there are potential road closures in place during the month of February if you are visiting from the direction of Gloucester and the M5. For more information, please go to

The open days at weekends do not need to be booked but if you would like to attend a weekday private guided tour, please contact the office as early as possible for more information and booking.

Colesbourne Gardens is the premier place to see snowdrops in bloom. The collection is probably the most varied of any garden on display, with over three hundred varieties of this spectacular harbinger of spring on show during the short season. Over 10 acres of private gardens and woodland walks with a mix of snowdrops, hellebores, cyclamen and a wide variety of early flowering shrubs.

The Gardens include an arboretum of rare trees privately collected over the past 120 years, many of which are Champion trees listed in the Tree Register of the British Isles.

Lovely garden, best snowdrops we have ever seen.
