Colesbourne Park Snow Drop

England's Greatest Snowdrop Garden

Colesbourne Park

England’s Greatest Snowdrop Garden


We are very sorry to announce that due to the heavy rain we have experienced this week, the gardens will be unable to open this weekend. The carpark and the gardens themselves are very waterlogged and dangerous due to slippery conditions and we have taken the decision to close after much deliberation. This is sadness indeed after a wonderful Countryfile piece on our snowdrop collection last Sunday – if you have not seen it, it is available on BBC 1 iplayer, and at least you will see a little glimpse into a time when it was not raining!

We hate ending the season on such a note but thank you to all our visitors this year and we look forward to seeing you all next year!



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.

A most beautiful place to see such a wide range of snowdrops in a natural setting.
