Snowdrops at Brockhampton

Snowdrops growing in front of the manor

The snowdrops are out on the Brockhampton estate, with 1600 acres to explore, discover your own special spot filled with little white snowdrop buds.

It’s always a lovely sight to see the first of the snowdrops emerging after a long winter, meaning spring is just around the corner.

The full estate is open from Saturday 16 February onwards so why not enjoy a wander over the beautiful Herefordshire countryside seeing what other seasonal sights you can spot? The daffodils are also beginning to make an appearance around the manor house, before long their lovely yellow heads will be bobbing in the breeze looking picture perfect.
