Description:
Set in the beautiful Churn valley in the heart of the Gloucestershire Cotswolds, Colesbourne Park has been the home of the Elwes family since 1789. The historic snowdrop collection, started by Henry John Elwes with the discovery of Galanthus elwesii in Turkey in 1874, has been greatly developed by Sir Henry and Lady Elwes in the past 25 years. It has been called 'England's greatest snowdrop garden' by Country Life. Now with a collection of 350 varieties, visitors can enjoy the snowdrops throughout the ten acre garden with its woodland and lakeside paths, the Spring Garden and Formal Garden, alongside drifts of cyclamen, hellebores and other winter plants. The surrounding park, arboretum and nearby church are also open
