Snowdrops in the Midlands

The first months of the year show signs that plant life is still busy with the burst of beautiful snowdrops. Here are some of our favourite places to see the first signs that spring is on its way in the Midlands. Remember that snowdrops rely on the weather, so please do check with the property that they're in flower before you visit.
