Either cyclamen hederafolium or cyclamen coum - the first will flower in the late summer/autumn, before they grow their beautiful frosted leaves. The second will flower in the very early spring, around the same time as snowdrops.
Lucky you - we found the same when we moved into this garden - beautiful! I was thrilled as they were our first 'discovery' here and I'd always wanted a garden with cyclamen in it.
I wonder whether you have the white or the pink, or some of each? Those huge 'corms' are very old - they start off quite tiny and get bigger and bigger each year - we have some like dinner plates.
It sounds as if you have a lovely garden.
