I just had to share these photos from our walk on Saturday afternoon. We found ourselves in an enchanting snowdrop wonderland. And we had it almost to ourselves, apart from a couple of others with their dogs.
We were walking through a little woodland adjacent to NT Acorn Bank in Cumbrias Eden Valley. Although the house, gardens and watermill are closed until March, a public footpath meanders through the woods. Much of the ground was carpeted in one of our most delicately beautiful Spring flowers ‘ The Snowdrop’. Seen as a symbol of hope and purity, snowdrops were apparently named after pearl drop earrings, not flakes of snow.
It was really magical to wander amongst them. Have you seen any impressive Snowdrop displays this year?

It’s always great to see the snowdrops arive!
And I recognise those views from our visit to Acorn bank in the autumn – no apples for you, though 😉
No apples and no cake! But the snowdrops were so beautiful, I didn’t mind. 😊
No cake 😱 I guess the pop up café wasn’t there.
Hi no Acorn Bank is closed until Spring, but a public footpath goes through the woodland, so ok to walk there.
The snowdrops look lovely, and so many of them too 🙂 I went to Lytham Hall last week but it was so cloudy and dull it didn’t show the snowdrops in the best light. Of course sod’s law said that the sun came out and the sky turned blue as I just as I was leaving to come home for work 😦
Typical English Weather hey. I am sure it would have still looked lovely. We were going to go but didn’t get around to it.
It is magical to see so many snowdrops. Lovely! Thanks for sharing these photos 🌸🌷🙋♂️
It is beautiful in the woods there, and looks so different from when we visited last summer.
The carpet of snowdrops is gorgeous. X
Lovely Pictures Shazza, we were at Chirk Castle at the weekend which also has a lot of Snowdrops
Oooh, don’t know that place.
It’s near Llangollen Shazza 😁
Snowdrops seem to be spreading everywhere! Always a cheerful sight.
They are indeed. 🙂
My partner would love this place, we’ve seen some smaller thinner patches of snowdrops which were nice, but these clumps of them are brilliant
Most impressive display I have seen. 🙂
We have a few, but nothing like this (though we haven’t even to any of the ‘special’ places). The picture where they spread away from the camera is terrific.
Thanks Anabel. 🙂
Beautiful walk. I have not been to Acorn bank for a while now. I need to plan a visit soon. I have seen a lot of snowdrops yet this year.
Maybe you can still get a snowdrop walk in this month. Apparently Grizedale Forest has snowdrops….. and sculptures of course.
The snowdrops are very beautiful, and they do look like snowdrops! That is so cool!
That’s a lot of snowdrops! Funnily enough, my latest post is about the snowdrops at my village church.
I will check it out! X
The walks through Acorn Bank are lovely aren’t they, the snowdrops are wonderful there. There is a wood in the village of Askham that used to have wonderful snowdrops but I haven’t been there for a while so not sure if they are still a lovely display.
That is good about Askham. I know it’s lovely for Bluebells later in the Spring. X
Oh my goodness. What a great show. I love finding Good snowdrop locations.
They are beautiful aren’t they. 🙂
