Snowdrops at Pencarrow 9 / 2 / 2018

Snow drops at Pencarrow House and Gardens

We have some really beautiful country houses in Cornwall, many owned by the National Trust but some are still lived in by the families themselves. Pencarrow House in between Wadebridge and Bodmin has been in the same family for almost 500 years!

You can visit this Georgian house in season by guided tour, and the extensive gardens and woodlands are defiantly worth exploring. In February they run Snowdrop Sundays, this year on the 11th and 18th, where for a donation you can stroll the grounds and see the truly beautiful snowdrops. A carpet of white covers the landscape. Pencarrow is dog friendly with acres for you and your fury friends to explore.

The Peacock cafe will also open, run by Friends of Pencarrow and serving delicious homemade cakes and warming drinks. The gardens officially re-open on the 1st of March, so this really is a sneak peak of one of the finest examples of landcaping in Cornwall. This year the entrance fee goes to the dog charity Last Chance Hotel and Blood Bikes, who carry vital supplies of blood where it’s needed.
