Welford Park is a country house and estate in the village of Welford in the English county of Berkshire, situated 5.2 miles northwest of Newbury and 10.9 miles south of Wantage. It is a Grade I-listed building.
The church of Welford St Gregory, one of only two existing round-tower churches in Berkshire, is located adjacent to the house. The various chalk streams that make up the River Lambourn flow through the grounds.

The estate opens its grounds to the public every year for about four weeks to enable visitors to see the carpets of snowdrops that line the riverbanks and flow through the nearby woods.

  • We had left it fairly late in the season but there was still a very good display of snowdrops. We were amazed at the sheer numbers on show, although I don't think there was the range of varieties...

  • Fabulous snowdrops as usual but I had a problem with my mobility scooter in as far as it broke down. I needn’t have worried a very cheerful guy came and took my scooter and myself back to the car...

  • We visit every year and are never disappointed. Friendly staff and easy free parking with a very short work to the grounds. Snowdrops always look stunning.

  • A magical place to visit for snowdrops in February with the densely populated flowers carpeting the ground like snow. There were crocuses, hellebore and aconite as well with daffodils peeping through. The food was well served in a marquee, and the little rooms were close at hand. Well worth a visit.
  • Lovely place to visit, nice cafe in a big marquee, lovely walk through the grounds along the river and through the woods and the snowdrops are beautiful! Also a very old church to see, very beautiful and all in all a very worthwhile trip, I would gladly visit again 😀
  • Really lovely few hours walking the gardens and woodland at Welford. Would really recommend a visit. Well organised process from parking to leaving! Pricing may be a tad steep, but still a very nice way to spend an afternoon. Book in advance to save 10% on entry fee.
  • A lovely sight. I've been before and am never disappointed in the snowdrop wood and streams that give nature a lift at this time of year. The people there are friendly and care about the place. It's a treat-and the home made cakes are the perfect thing with a cuppa after a chilly walk.
  • Lovely place to wander around. Today very lucky with some glorious February sunshine to highlight the snowdrops
