Snowdrops, Easter trails and free garden entry

Spring time at Peckover

From 3rd February, our gardens will be open from 12pm to 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays until Sunday 3rd March. The Reed Barn tearoom will also be open, so you can warm up with a hot drink and a light snack.

Although the gardens are open for snowdrops across weekends in February, the house itself will remain closed until the 2024 season gets underway on Thursday 7th March.

Entrance to Peckover gardens is free, all year round.


This year, we are delighted to be opening our garden gates to showcase our wonderful snowdrop displays. A sure sign that spring is on the way, the snowdrops and winter aconites add a magical air to the garden borders.
