Walk among bluebells at Greys Court

Bluebells can be found throughout the estate at Greys Court, however they are in their thousands in the bluebell woods. Take a photo of the estate map at Visitor Reception, and follow Sir Felix’s Gentle Path for a distant look at the bluebells of Greys Court, or simply head on over to the Spinney woods for a close-up snapshot of these blue beauties.

If you follow the estate walk around the boundary of the estate, you'll see a natural display of bluebells in the woods near the Cowshed Tea-room. 

Help us protect the bluebells for future generations

Bluebells are a beautiful part of our British natural heritage, and the carpet of bluebells at Greys Court are a truly irresistible wonder. Their delicate flowers and vibrant leaves are so inviting to walk among, and we know full well that a photo opportunity amongst the flowers can be all too tempting. However, even the most careful foot can cause more damage than you may realise. Take care to stick to our paths, and help us protect this beautiful blue carpet for everyone to enjoy.

Access to the bluebells

Please note that the bluebells at Greys Court are in the Spinney Woods along Sir Felix's Gentle path which is a loose woodchipped path that is uneven in areas, and a considerable distance from the amenities. 

Make a day of your spring visit to Greys Court

Spring flowers are in bloom all over the estate, and there’s even more to see at Greys Court than our bluebells. In May, wildflowers are blooming in the meadow, and our apple and clemantis tress are just starting to bloom in the walled garden.
