Greenfort 01

Although May and June are usually the best months with the most colour and variety, there is always something in season: from witch hazel and snowdrops to the autumn colours and winter-flowering cherry.  The house and garden have existed for several centuries.  There are many rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias, large areas of snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells and beautiful walks through young and mature broadleaf woodland with outstanding views over Lough Swilly and Inishowen.
