We think Snowdrop Valley is one of the best snowdrop walks there is. It is a wonderful place to enjoy these first signs of spring in a beautifully natural Exmoor woodland setting on the banks of the River Avill, usually carpeted in snowdrops in February and early March. The pictures on this page will give you an idea of why it is so special and unique.

The walk down to the valley from Wheddon Cross is very pretty, but it's steep and the path can be muddy and slippery. So if you don’t fancy walking the whole way (about a mile) you can take the special snowdrops bus. Snowdrop Valley park and ride scheme starts from the Wheddon Cross village car park next to the pub, just a short walk from Exmoor House.

Snowdrop Valley 2016: the buses will be running every day from 6th to 21st February inclusive. Drapers Way will be closed to traffic from 30th January to 28th February. When there is no bus service the only access to Snowdrop Valley will be on foot, although people who have disabilities can obtain mobility passes for use during these weeks. Walkers can enjoy this secret Exmoor place at any time of year, perhaps as part of a longer hike.

It’s impossible, of course, to say exactly when the snowdrops will be at their best, but if you don't manage to visit Exmoor House when they are in bloom, you’ll just have to make do with fantastic views from Dunkery, Exmoor ponies grazing on Winsford Hill, the chance of seeing wild deer - you know, just the usual stuff.

Autumn on Exmoor
