Gardens of the Cotswolds
The World Heritage site and birthplace of Winston Churchill, Blenheim Palace is one of the finest private houses in England. Surrounded by over 2000 acres of spectacular Capability Brown parkland and award-winning formal gardens.
Juxtaposed with the formal Botanic Garden in Oxford, the University of Oxford Arboretum is a unique and informal blend of gardens & nature. In May and June, the Arboretum is famously ablaze with azaleas & rhododendrons. Located 6 miles outside Oxford.
Stretching our 30 mile boundary slightly but these Arts and Crafts Gardens are a masterpiece and should not be missed. Famous for its rare trees and shrubs, outstanding herbaceous borders, the gardens are superb at any time of the year.
Again stretching our boundary, the award-winning Gardens of Kiftsgate Court should not be missed. Designed and run by three generations of women owners, the gardens are home to many unusual plants as well as the country’s largest rose and also have magnificent views.
Hidden away in a Cotswold valley, the Rococo Gardens are flamboyant and magical at any time of year.
Charles Wade, the eccentric architect amassed a huge private collection of items throughout his life at Snowshill. From the everyday, to the obscure, the collection is a commentary of life from the early 20th Century. The gardens were designed by his friend the Arts & Craft Architect. M.H. Baillie Scott.
Few historic Houses can match Sudeley’s thousand year old history. Having hosted at least six Kings and Queens of England, the Castle was also home of Catherine Parr and set in some of the country’s most magnificent gardens.
