“Disappointing gardens but loved the church”
Stunning Cotswold manor house set in its own private valley. House dates to the 1400s but the site has been inhabited for over 1000 years. Magical hanging gardens open to the public: they slope gently from the church down to the brook at the bottom...more

I was on a course here for three days and was struck by the beauty and tranquil nature of the venue. We were based in Grist Mill and the Cyder House, both of which had charm and character.

We had read much about these gardens, but on arrival were extremely disappointed with them. There was little in the way of flowers to see, which was odd given that we were there during spring. There was a walk around a boggy field, during which...More

We are sorry that TheOldMacs was not entirely satisfied with their visit to Owlpen, and cannot help but worry that they may have gone to the wrong place, as the description above does not bear a relation to any other descriptions of the Owlpen valley....More
