 One of the old oak trees in the woodland. Other trees are beech, understorey of hazel and hawthorn

 In the formal gardens, there are roses in flower, and paeonys, and dafodils still. There are magnolias and snakes head fritillaries in flower.

What Nut says!

Even OH was impressed and that takes a lot.

You wouldn't believe it was less than half a mile from the M1

Absolutely gorgeous.

Gorgeous bluebells - what an uplifting sight

24/04/2014 at 22:51

Bluebells!!  I had a strange experience a long time ago and bluebells were definitely involved.  A friend and I were riding through Fonthill woods in Wiltshire and as we came into a clearing we both said 'Bluebells?  Not the flowers but the perfume except...... this was August!!  Yes they did bloom there in the Spring but there certainly were none in sight that bright summer day.  Looking back from many years later I would say I must have dreamt it but we both had exactly the same reaction and the perfume lingered until we rode into the next treeline.

Certainly the perfume was amazing. Very hyacinth like but not so headache inducing, if that makes sense. One of those smells you wish you could bottle to pull out on a depressing dull day.

Absolutely gorgeous - thanks

Thanks Fidget, I feel like I was there.

Probably some of the best bluebell shots I've ever seen...and I've seen a few!

Well done, fidget.....fabulous!

Anyone fancy a trip this Friday????

how beautiful, where is this place? Dorset I used to ride in local woods and bluebell time was my favourite, I'd rush to the yard after work,throw saddle on my lovely horse and enjoy the sight , smell and sounds of a quiet evening, last year my lovely hucband and 2 littlies took me to those same woods to give me a silver pendant of a tree engraved with 'we love you' and  their initials

Whereabouts near the M1?

23/04/2015 at 09:26

Fidget......awesome photographs. You must of had a wonderful day there. I have a photograph of me and my Mum in amongst the bluebells in Wendover Woods, I keep it on my fridge. Heavenly perfume.

If you come off the M1 at junction 27, take the turn west towards Eastwood. It is half a mile from the M1 on the left hand side.

There is a map on their website.

RHS members free on Tuesday and Wednesday

Good little tearoom and nursery growing their own plants.
