We have visited Hidcote many times and had seen Kiftsgate signposted on the same road. This was our first and probably last visit to Kiftsgate as we were very disappointed with the gardens. The views are lovely but the garden itself looked untidy and tired, with poorly maintained areas. There were some pretty peonies but overall it wasn't at all... More

This garden is no doubtfully passed by as it shares the same lane as NT Hidcote, which is a gem. However Kiftsgate whilst being so close has a definitely different perspective. There are many similarities and also lots of alternative ideas. The views across the landscape from Kiftsgate are far more reaching than anything at Hidcote can offer, as it... More

Return visit after ten years absence and we were not disappointed. Set on the side of a hill with stunning views and a variety of terraced gardens. Privately owned, nice little tea room (can get crowded when coach parties arrive). Plant sales near entrance. Not recommended for wheelchairs and persons with reduced mobility as oaths can be steep and very... More

The gardens have a delightful variety of plants and provided lots of colour and interest. The layout and planting showed that some proper thought and doubtless hard work had gone into every area. Lovely scents from the flowers at different intervals around the gardens is very pleasant. I liked the way that at some of the edges of the gardens... More

We visited again after an absence of approximately 10 years. The gardens are as beautiful as ever, especially the gorgeous peonies in bloom at this time of the year. Maintenance is to a high standard, without the gardens appearing to be "over manicured". The views over the Cotswolds from the various terraces are stunning. The addition of the architectural pool...

A fabulous house and gardens with spectacular views, every nook and cranny is inspirational and absolutely beautiful. Tea room cakes lovely along with the service. The water garden is magnificent and the perfect place to sit and reflect. Well worth the entrance fee and a visit, only wish I lived there!

If you can, do make time to visit Kniftsgate Court Gardens. If as I am you are a gardening nut, this is one you will not forget. It has many different planting styles from the formal terrace to sunken garden, from rose gardens to the woody walk down to the semi circle pool. There are so many ideas you can... More

When you go to visit Hidcote, this lovely garden is just a couple of hundred yards away and very much worth a visit. Sadly, it is not National Trust but the entry price is pretty much in line its what you would expect to pay with the trust. The garden is situated very dramatically on the edge of the escarpment...

We visited this garden after Hidcote which was just up the road. It is a beautiful garden on many levels. The New Water Garden, The Lower Garden and bluebell woods are not to be missed.
