Snowdrop Valley

Snowdrop Valley is a privately owned remote valley in a hidden part of Exmoor, close to Wheddon Cross

The Badgworthy Land Company kindly allow access to the valley while the beautiful carpet of snowdrops is in bloom throughout February each year.

Cutcombe Parish Council, in conjunction with Exmoor National Park Authority, runs a Park and Ride Service to Snowdrop Valley and staffs the Snowdrop Information Point in the Car Park.

Visitors can also walk down into the valley, and there is a variety of merchandise available to purchase as souvenirs.

Parking for all vehicles is at the Exmoor Farmers Market, which is also the start of the walks into Snowdrop Valley, and is clearly signposted from the village.
