Overview
More
Wyndcliffe Court Gardens are Grade II listed and designed in the Arts and Crafts style. Designed by H. Avray Tipping, friend of Gertrude Jekyll and Editor of Country Life magazine, they were completed in 1922 and are probably the best example of their type in Wales. With sculpted topiary, a sunken garden, a summerhouse, walled gardens, fountains, lily ponds and a bowling lawn leading on to wooded walks, they are a national treasure not to be missed. Now open to the public on a regular basis, they are showcasing contemporary sculptures by local and well-known British artists. The collection features hundreds of sculptures in a wide variety of mediums, sizes and styles situated throughout the garden and offering the opportunity to view and purchase beautiful sculpture with an outstanding backdrop.Open Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays from 11am - 6pm. (Also opening Wednesday to Sunday in July and August) Annual entrance to the gardens is £6 (pay once and return the rest of the year for free!) Discounts for pre-booked group visits and coach companies.

This was a smallish house and garden that had many sculptures dotted about for sale. The gardens were nicely laid out and very attractive. We were told the place was closing for good a few days after our visit as they had lost their lease.

Gardens had been sadly neglected for a considerable time but one could see that they had once been beautifully designed. Did not like the overpriced often rusty sculpture in such a setting. The cream tea was excellent and sitting outside in beautiful sunshine with a...More

Lovely informal gardens, some stunning sculptures and a wonderful view over the Severn bridge. Lovely peaceful and relaxing atmosphere despite the Welsh weather.

Don't bother.. No entry to house, gardens unkempt. Views over Wye valley is only bonus to this place. Sculptures around garden extremely over priced and not worth the view.

We do appreciate that we all have different opinions and expectations and thank you for your honest feedback. That being said we must confess to be rather dumbfounded by your review given the overwelmingly positive feedback we usually receive. Horses for courses i guess!
