SNAPE COTTAGE GARDEN IS NO LONGER OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

We closed the garden in 2016 after 26 years of opening in aid of the National Garden Scheme

 

ALTHOUGH THE GARDEN IS NO LONGER OPEN, SNAPE STAKES AND OBELISKS

WILL CONTINUE TO BE AVAILABLE ALL YEAR ROUND

NOT "JUST" SNOWDROPS AND HELLEBORES!

THE GARDEN IS PLANTED FOR ALL THE YEAR INTEREST  

Snape Cottage Garden is made on a south-facing hillside of underground springs, which makes it ideal

 for growing the thousands of rare and  traditional bulbs and perennials which we love.

There are exciting collections of snowdrops, hellebores, old daffodils, pulmonarias, auriculas, hardy geraniums, 

dianthus, irises and asters, so there is always something to see and admire.  Angela Whinfield has a special

 interest in History and Natural History , and there are many ancient and unusual 

varieties, each with a fascinating story, amongst the plants in the garden. 

Great care has been taken to plant in harmony with the surrounding landscape and there is a fine view

and plenty of seats.

 This organically-managed garden, with its pond and hay meadow,  is a haven for wildlife (61 bird species noted)  

Everything is clearly labelled
