We've visited here at 3 different times of year. And always amazed by the colour. This garden is special. Beautifully kept. And a great tea room too. Won't say to much as it'll spoil the surprises round every corner!

I am so glad we sought out this wonderful garden. Although it was October when we visited, the garden was in full swing, with extensive arrays of salvias, cannas, dahlias, asters - and many others that I could not name (but did photograph). It has...More

Friends of ours had told us of their visit here, and being in the area we decided to call in. The place is relatively easy to find, being on the A44 just west of Moreton-in-Marsh. There is a decent sized parking area opposite the venue....More

We went to Bourton House having been once before. There are beautiful colourful gardens with lovely far reaching views from the terrace. There is also a very good cafe and shop set in a beautiful old stone barn.

What a gem of a garden. The borders were still in flower and it was immaculate. It was the best garden we have visited in September. The white garden was equal to the famous one at Sissinghurst. The staff were so friendly, the tea shop...More

Staying nearby, we decided to visit this garden as one of the few Cotswolds gardens we hadn’t tried before. It turned out to be a delightful experience. Even though it’s still school holiday time, it wasn’t very busy which gave us ample time and space...More
