It was a glorious February day with sunshine and brilliant blue skies; much too nice to be inside. We decided to visit Burton Agnes Hall for their snowdrop Walk.

Burton Agnes Hall is a beautiful Tudor Manor House set in parkland in the flatland of East Yorkshire. The house is closed but the gardens are open for the snowdrops. There is not a lot to see in the walled garden at his time of the year, but it is stunning in the summer months.

The house is surrounded by neatly cut grass with carefully trimmed specimen yew trees and an ornamental lake.

A woodland walk takes you through mixed woodland with beech and ash. The ground was covered with snowdrops. The well maintained gravel paths which kept our feet dry, just as well after torrential rain the previous day. In the sunshine it was a joyous site.

We stopped to admire the wood sculptures of owls, squirrels and a woodpecker. Hanging from a tree was a spiders web with a giant spider, guaranteed to freak out any arachnophobes in the party. Don’t miss the wire snail and a giant caterpillar.

In the middle of the wood is a large wind chime which was making a tremendous din in the strong wind. In fact we thought at first it was agricultural machinery working in the field.

The walk is about two miles and there are plenty of seats along the way to stop and enjoy the snowdrops. We felt better for the blow and exercise. We felt we had earned a cup of tea and cake in the cafe in the courtyard. Outside the shop were pots of snowdrops, daffodils and irises (every colour imaginable) for sale.

At £5.50 for Senior Citizens we felt this was a bit expensive compared with £5 for the snowdrop walk at Hodsock Priory in Nottinghamshire which we felt has the edge, especially the flower gardens.
