Spring is here and so too are an abundance of beautiful flowers – if you want to shake off winter and welcome in the new season, here are some of the best places to find the region’s daffodils, snowdrops and bluebells across Devon.

Lady’s Wood

This small reserve is on the edge of Dartmoor and is one of the oldest nature reserves under the management of Devon Wildlife Trust. At this time of year, you can see a wonderful bluebell display and if you’re quiet, you may even spot a dormouse or two!


This walk takes you through a wooded valley alongside a river on the edge of Dartmoor and is the place to go to see wild daffodils, especially around Easter time. The whole woodland floor turns yellow in the spring, so make sure you visit!


Managed by the National Trust, Greenway is a Georgian house that was once the holiday home of Agatha Christie. It’s well known for its incredible gardens, which at this time of year are full of magnolias, daffodils and cyclamen among other spring flowers.

Uppacott Wood

Another ancient woodland where you can enjoy a panorama of North Devon’s beautiful landscape. It’s one of the only places you can see early purple orchids in the county, as well as a range of other spring flowers.

Hartland Abbey

Hartland Abbey in North Devon is always worth a visit but in the spring you can join in the daffodil trail which marks their opening season. It’s a truly impressive sight with the daffodils and the dramatic views of Hartland.

Blackbury Camp

On the outskirts of Exeter and near the Eastern end of the county, this iron age settlement is well known for having a carpeting of bluebells in the spring months. It’s the perfect spot for photographers, so get your cameras ready!
