The gardens at Easton Lodge will be opening for two Snowdrop Sundays on February 18 and 25 from 11.30am.

There are carpets of snowdrops under the trees at the front of the gardens and more in the walled kitchen garden and across the gardens.

Many of the common single and double blooms were planted in Victorian times or before.

There will be hot drinks, bacon and cheese rolls and soup to warm up visitors – plus a wide variety of homemade cakes – are available at the refreshment kiosk.

The Gardens of Easton Lodge, at Little Easton, are Grade II listed. They were one of the most important creations of the Edwardian designer Harold Peto, commissioned in 1902 by their owner, the Countess of Warwick.

Further information is available on www.eastonlodge.co.uk. To enquire about visiting, volunteering, hosting a talk about the gardens or arranging a private group tour e-mail enquiries@eastonlodge.co.uk or call 01371 876979.
