Possibly Narcissus 'Conspicuus' but there are so many thousands of Daffodil cultivars it is hard to be sure

It could really be anything at Myddelton House. Bowles had a great bulb collection and even wrote a book on daffodils.

He also wrote a book on Crocuses. I bought a copy when a teenager and have collected Crocuses ever since. He was a great garden writer and it's worth reading a few of his books.

Yes he was, the house is very close-by to where i live so I'm able to visit often, will definitely visit the shop and look out for his books, thanks :)

I was just going to say it looked similar to Conspicuus too. But they are some others that are similar. It could be a heritage variety.
