Has anyone visited during their "Snowdrop Season" ?
I believe it is quite spectacular and well worth a visit.

I have visited once before, in the summer, but that was on an arranged photography seminar so tripods etc. were OK but any experiences from anyone regarding this for general public access.

Nope. When I lived in Stroud I went there once in the rain and found it closed.....

Do you think it's somewhere kids would like ?

I've never visited during Snowdrop season but do go fairly regularly throughout the spring and summer. It's always a good place to visit with a good variety of interest - woody bits, flowery bits, follies and plenty of room for everyone - I dare say you've seen this on the website though.

I even came across a deer once there - that was a bit of a bonus!

I'll certainly be going back in 2008 - not only are there the Rococco Gardens but Painswick down the road with the churchyard full of yew trees.

It is very good for snow drops, but then you have the big problem. to many people.
You need to get there very early.

The best time to see the snowdrops is around mid February time. The garden is open from today onwards. You can however see some snowdrops in that area for free and get some reasonable shots of them, as there are lots growing on the banks at the side of the A46 between Pitchcombe and Stroud.
