Kiftsgate Court--Hidcote's lesser known, next-door neighbor

These gardens are directly across the road from the world-famous gardens of Hidcote, but, strangely, Kiftsgate remains little known. The House was built in 1887, and gardens have been continually added since 1918. The water features at Kiftsgate, which are exquisite, unusual and essentially sculptural, anchor one of the most beautiful little gardens you'll ever see. And if you visit... More

A wonderful place to visit for the gardens, location and history. Wonderful views over the Cotswold countryside and a delight to sit and watch the fountains, enjoy the flowers, shrubs and trees and of course the wonderful swimming pool that overlooks the valley, what a wonderful location this is. Do not forget to sample the fine food in their restaurant/cafe... More

This garden is well worth a visit, I have only given it an average only because there is not a huge amount to look at, to see all of the gardens you need to be quite fit as there is a very steep descent to the swimming pool with a fantastic view but worth it if you can manage the... More

Fabulous gardens, not perfect but beautiful - amazing range of plants and great design, amazing views across the vale of Evesham. So many areas to explore - quite undulating - a plant persons garden, more maybe no so great for little people (children) Super tea room, the ginger and lemon drizzle stole the day from the scone test - thoroughly...

Beauty everywhere you look! Loved the gardens and small sitting areas round the manor, the walkway to the lower pond and the view from the pond area. Cannot say enough good things about this beautiful garden. We took so many beautiful photos.

We arrived at Kiftsgate yesterday afternoon as the heavens opened. We sat it out in the car for a quarter of an hour but then decided we'd head on over and have a cup of tea in the hope that the rain would ease off. On arrival at the entrance the woman handing out the tickets asked us, somewhat aggressively,... More

Kiftsgate is less than a mile from the much more famous Hidcote Garden, and if you only have time for one of them, then make sure it's Kiftsgate! The setting, on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment, means stunning views across half a dozen counties, and the gardens themselves are full of variety, from English cottage garden style to a...

Extremely delightful and peaceful place to visit. Various layouts, with great views, and some unexpected items. Some of the walks could be a bit difficult in wet weather, especially for the less mobile visitor.
