Snowdrops at Cotswold Farm Gardens launch Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust’s open garden season

Thursday 8th February 2018

Cotswold Farm Gardens, Duntisbourne Abbots, will be opening their doors on the 17th and 18th of February (11am – 3pm) for a weekend of marvelling at snowdrops and enjoying tea and cake on the terrace.

The arts and crafts garden, designed in the 1930’s by Norman Jewson, offers beautiful views into the adjacent valley. Descending levels of the garden each offer a delight to the senses with particular note given in February to the winter garden.

Named snowdrops can be found throughout the borders of the garden and many naturalised varieties feature along the short woodland walk.

Entrance is £5 per person and under 16’s are free; there is no need to book, just turn up on the day. Hot drinks and cake will be served from the terrace. All proceeds will go to Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust to support its work protecting, restoring and expanding the wildlife and wild places in our beautiful county.

Travelling 10 miles southbound along the A417 from Gloucester, take the exit (signposted for Duntisbourne Abbots) next to the BP garage. Shortly after, turn right and follow the signs for Cotswold Farm Gardens (GL7 7JS).
