This is only a small attraction but the tithe barn where you enter (and where there is a small coffee shop), is a very fine example from the 16th C. The garden itself is laid out in small sections and all are very well planted and attractive. There is also a walk in a field opposite the house with a... More

Garden stunning and well worth a look. Don't miss afternoon tea - huge selection of amazing homemade cakes and fantastic service. Best afternoon tea in the area by a very long way! Check opening times carefully.

Beautiful gardens with surprise after surprise. So many parts to the garden with lovely and interesting plants. The topiary is immaculate. The food in the tea rooms is lovely and home made. Look out for the chutney, it's very tasty.

members of our gardening club visited the gardens last week. Received a very warm welcome and a nice coffee in an old and interesting barn. Following a humorous introduction from Paul, the Head Gardener we enjoyed wonderful gardens with immaculate and unusual topiary, spectacular herbaceous borders and lots more.

A party of 22 visited these stunning gardens in July. The gardens are divided and each section is a delight with beautiful wide herbaceous borders. The topiary is just perfection. There is just so much to see and take in. We then had a cream tea in the Tithe Barn. This is not to be missed as everyone said how... More

This is local to me but this was my first visit. 3 acres of stunning and varied gardens with some quite unusual plants. Highlight was the hot border and vegetable garden. Good quality coffee & cake in the café too - the cakes were fresh and delicious and staff friendly - Sudeley Castle could learn a thing or two. I... More

Visited here at the end of June a wonderful month to see all the beautiful roses at their very best, this part of the garden has a great view to the rear. These gardens consist of many gardens within a garden, a white garden, topiary and an amazing greenhouse with some weird and wonderful species. The gardeners whom we met... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I am very glad you enjoyed your visit to Bourton House Garden. The garden just keeps getting better and better through the summer months. It has a very long flowering season due to the extensive use of semi-hardy and tender plants and looks amazing right up to first frosts. The gardeners... More

A beautiful series of unique gardens. Had a beautiful stroll through these picturesque gardens, some very manicured and others that are less formal. There are also benches to sit and just take in all the views, both inside the gardens and out into the surrounding valley.
