The Postcode is incorrect it should read RG20 8HU but when I try to alter it the message comes back that it is not in the correct format for the country which is wrong as at the moment it is showing in exactly the same format but with the wrong code. I have had customers ring me up and ask me to change it. Many thanks for your assistance

Great experience for snowdrops, best to visit by mid February for best displays? All depends on weather earlier in winter.

Lovely walk around the garden. Nice sausage bap in the tent. Easy walking despite the amount of rain we have had.

Well organised and worth the money. I think it is good of the family that own this place to allow the public in to see the lovely snowdrops.Clearly they dont either need ,or do this for money. Respect and thanks to them all

Visited on 27 February and snowdrops were well past their best - certainly not a carpet of white. Will know to check before spending £8 to walk in the park grounds. Nice grounds and a pleasant walk but not worth an £8 entrance were it not for the fact that the money goes to charity.

Went to see the snowdrops with friends - very well worth the effort. Huge carpets of snowdrops in the woods and around the river banks. Lots of different paths to follow - well maintained and not slippy despite the recent wet weather. The house is handsome and the car parking arrangements were very efficient with a traffic light system for pedestrians to avoid cars. Finished off the morning with lunch at the local pub - the Five Bells - which was very good.

We were lucky, we had blue sky and sunshine for our visit. The snowdrops were so prolific and so intense, it was literally like drifts of snow in the woods. Really stunning. Alongside that, there was a cafe with delicious cakes, a family of giraffes (made out of metal) and different areas of parkland to visit.

I am a wheelchair user and found it very accessible.

Wonderful visit during first week of Feb. Beautiful walk along the river banks to the beech woods, which were a carpet of white. Visited the cafe and sat outside in the sunshine drinking a mug of delicious homemade leek and potato soup. Cafe was very busy but staff were amazingly calm and helpful. The £6 fee, as an "oldie" was the best money spent, for a while.

We visited Welford park on the first Friday of February and were certainly not disappointed. We parked our car in the designated car park and walked the short, but in parts steep, path to cross the road, pay our admission and enter the park.
We took the walk around the snowdrop meadows and were completely stunned by the density of snowdrop planting. Also, in front of the house (not open to the public) there are some beautiful yellow winter aconites combined with snowdrops which make a very attractive photograph. It took us several hours wandering around the estate with the river and various woods taking our time and taking our photographs! Afterwards we enjoyed a sausage bap together with a cup of coffee (the soup had run out by the time we returned to lunch) and we appreciated the friendly staff and the small gift shop selling snowdrop themed items. I have visited several places in search of beautiful snowdrops these include the Cambridge University Botanic Gardens, Anglesey Abbey in Cambridge, and various church yards, but Welford park is by far the best place. The snowdrop display is simply the best I have ever seen. Do also look inside the Victorian church and enjoy the snowdrops in the graveyard which are also attractive in their own way. Definitely recommended

Worth every penny of the £8 admission fee, snowdrops were breathtaking, a carpet of white in the beech woods and stunning displays of Aconites and Hellebores to see.
We were given a free map detailing walks along the crystal clear river Lambourn and through interestingart of the Estate. This as made so much easier by the estate owners putting thick wood chippings along the main paths so not muddy at all, the wooden bridges were covered in chicken wire so not slippy and easily accessible, this was so much appreciated as we had family member with us that had recently had a spinal operation.
The staff in shop and old laundry tea rooms were all so lovely and friendly, however the scones weren’t good, tasted of cheap ingredients but really didn’t matter as we felt privileged to visit such a beautiful place.
I can see why people travel from all over the country to visit Welford Park at Snowdrop time, a truly fabulous day out, wish there has been a little Champagne bar though, there are lots of companies that convert horse boxes or lorries into Champagne/Prosecco bars would have been nice to have one of these in the Courtyard!!
