Discover a carpet of bluebells at Greys Court

Bluebells in woodland at Greys Court, Oxfordshire

The bluebells at Greys Court start showing their heads from mid-April, and they cover the estate in a beautiful carpet of blue; a wonder of nature that is not to be missed. The bluebells are beautiful whatever the weather, so here are some of the best places to spot bluebells at Greys Court this spring.

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. Pick up an estate map from 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.

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 for all

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 house and amenities. 

For visitors unable to do the walk, we recommend going to see the bluebells at Nuffield Place, which are looking great this year. At Nuffield Place, the bluebells woods are a short walk from the house along a gravel path, suitable for wheelchairs and buggies. 

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.

Seasonal delights can also be found in the cowshed tearoom at Greys Court. We work closely with the gardening team to offer delicious treats that have been made using seasonal fruit and veg from the Kitchen Garden.

If you’re feeling inspired after your day at Greys Court, you can also head over to the Greys Court shop to pick up spring flowers, and add a splash of Greys Court colour to your own garden.

Visit Greys Court midweek this April and May to enjoy the bluebells and gardens at their most tranquil. Normal admission charges apply.
