Award-winning 3-acre garden surrounding an 18th century Manor House and Grade I listed 16th century Tithe Barn. Magnificent wide herbaceous borders with stunning plant and colour combinations, imaginative topiary including a knot garden, topiary walk and parterre, water features and a unique shade house. 18th century raised walk provides an enticing link to the Cotswold landscape. The unusual, rare and exotic make this garden a plantsman’s paradise! HHA/Christie’s ‘Garden of the Year’ 2006.'Small Visitor Attraction of the Year' Cotswolds Tourism Silver Award 2013

Though not as large as some country house gardens, this one has outstanding beauty, varied, imaginative, tranquil, and lovingly maintained. The herbaceous borders are quite breathtaking, and the formal parts of the garden fascinating and colourful. The topiary is worth a visit in its own...More

I can't believe I have lived in the area for years and not visited this lovely garden. Perhaps because it is only open Tuesday to Friday. The house is private but you enter through a lovely barn into the gardens which are beautifully maintained. There...More

I always enjoy coming back to Bourton House Garden. The planting is imaginative and I find something new each time I visit. After a stroll round the garden, I can recommend the excellent cakes and other refreshments.

I spent a lovely morning in the garden here, followed by a walk round the field with really helpful pamphlet naming the trees and giving great information. Very relaxed and a garden that is very restful. The new topiary to the front of the house...More

Thank you so much for your generous review. I am delighted that you enjoyed the garden so much. If you return to the Cotswolds, do visit us in high summer when the garden is absolutely glorious.

The gardens were glorious and very well kept- a spot of peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the busy villages. Thank you.

We visited this garden and we were virtually the only visitors there. This is a shame as it is such a good garden to visit. SO colourful and very well kept.
