We have visited here many times when the snowdrops are in full bloom when it is very cold and damp. It is always a beautiful experience and it's possible to get a warm on the burning logs in the clearing along with a hot drink, so it's a very pleasant day. There is also a fabulous cafe where lovely snacks, cakes and drinks are served. On our last visit we went to see the Bluebells which again was very pleasant and the weather was much warmer and brighter. There was no bonfire but the snack bar was open and lots of clearing has been done to open the woods and there were plenty of logs to sit on. There is a children's play area which I haven't seen before, but again this has been made from cut down trees. The owner of the Priory also gave an historical talk which was very informative. He was also on hand at the gate when we left, to wish us a safe journey home. A lovely place to spend time whatever the weather as long as you are dressed appropriately.
