If you like gardens this is a worthwhile stop. There is a lovely old grand barn where they serve nice snacks and have a few trinkets for sale. Apart from that there is not a lot to keep the non-garden fan occupied apart from Cotswold charm, nature and nurture of the same. Small but beautiful - a great place to... More

This is a garden that you could visit at different times of the year and still enjoy. We found the mix of flowers and shrubs interesting, its a garden well worth a visit.

The garden features topiary walks and beautiful water features. There are wonderful herbaceous borders displaying stunning colours and exotic plants. Obviously a lot of thought and hard work has gone into this award winning garden. It is well worth a visit. Even in October the colours were splendid.

We visited Bourton House Gardens last week. We had visited several years ago but had been given a 2 for the price of 1 admission, so decided to call on the way to Broadway and what a happy decision that proved to be! The garden was stunning, full of magificent late summer colour. The borders were packed with still flowering... More

Lovely and interesting gardens surrounding Bourton House. Plus delicious home-made cakes in the tea room! One tip - they don't accept cards and we didn't have any cash so we had to make a last minute dash to the bank!

Oh wow! A perfect late summer afternoon. I spent a few hours marvelling at the breathtaking house and gardens of Bourton House. The immacutaley kept gardens and the beautiful house were a joy to see on this perfect summer afternoon. I hesitated at the £6 entrance fee but it was worth every penny just to see the late summer blooms... More

As the title of this review suggests, we went on a glorious English summer day. Admission is £6.00 and there is limited catering, mainly cakes plus, tea/coffee, water, juices etc You can take your cakes/drinks just outside where you pay and sit in seats in dappled sunlight under the canopy of a lovely large Tree.

This is a small garden but well worth the visit. It opens with an ancient tithe barn which shows the influence the Lord of the Manor once held. Also worth seeing is the Pottager, hidden away in its own little corridor next to the House, where everything is edible yet incredibly decorative at the same time. Don't miss the field... More
