Colourful garden, even in September!
Sep 2021
Although most of the roses have gone over there is still a lot of colour and interest in this beautiful garden, which certainly stands comparison to its illustrious neighbour, Hidcote. We had a cream tea by the terrace overlooking the main flower bed than passed a leisurely hour or so wandering through the garden admiring the work which has gone into creating such a harmonious flower-filled paradise. As well as the plants there are statuesque pine trees framing far-reaching views across to the Malvern Hills, and the walk down the steep hill past the summerhouse to the pool adds further to one’s admiration of the women who created the garden.

Beautiful gardens - well worth the trip
Aug 2021 • Family
We were meeting up with relatives and needed to find somewhere suitable for a group aged between 10 and 83. So pleased we decided to go to Kiftsgate Gardens. The kids were really happy exploring and loved the more challenging paths and we all really enjoyed the stunning views and beautiful gardens. Spotted lots of wildlife and we loved the different gardens and surprises that we found when we discovered a new area. Enjoyed lunch in the tearoom although there wasn't a massive choice, still enough to keep everyone satisfied.

Favourite Cotswold Garden
Jul 2021
Kiftsgate appeals to me as it has a very Mediterranean feel and stunning views. A truly delightful garden best seen in late June.

A beautiful English country garden
Aug 2021
This is a beautiful privately owned quintessentially English garden, in a style that is very full with tumbling plants, a profusion of colour, slightly on the cusp. A delight. We visited in August. Probably best to visit in July if you want too see the roses at their best, but there was so much colour and masses to see. Butterflies a plenty.

As always, a really lovely and enjoyable visit - so much to see
Jul 2021
We arrived not long after opening having been to Hidcote which is literally only a few minutes away (less than half a mile) and which itself is well worth a visit. The car park together with the overflow is adequate. A really friendly welcome - £9.50 to get in which is fair although free to HHA members. No booking is necessary

There are some one way systems in place which are probably necessary as some of the well maintained paths are narrow. We enjoyed the colourful, neat and thoughtfully planned borders, the water feature and fountain and the quite steep walk down to the ornmental pond and follie -lovely views looking over to the Malvern Hills. Great photo opportunities all around these gardens which have something for everyone and do linger in the memory.

There is a cafe with indoor and somewhat limited outdoor seating. A nice plant stall is near the entrance. The toilets are in the courtyard and could do with enhancement and a refurb - don't think they are really big enough for the footfall.

Overall, these are really lovely gardens to visit and are a must if you are a garden lover visiting the Cotswolds.

Delightful gardens
Jul 2021
Very attractive and well tended gardens. Beautiful planting in several contrasting areas and delightful views across to Bredon Hill and the Malverns. Lots of steps - but well worth spending time, both exploring and sitting and contemplating the design.

Beautiful gardens
Jul 2021
We loved visiting Kiftsgate, the gardens were gorgeous with some lovely views. Loved their water feature, could have sat listening to the water for a long time. We enjoyed this garden better than Hidecote gardens.

Beautiful gardens, lack of picnic space.
Jun 2021 • Family
We visited here after it was recommended by a family member, and we went with our two children. It is fairly straightforward to get to, although, parking is cramped. We had brought some drinks and sandwiches thinking we could sit on a bench somewhere in the garden, but it was clear from the outset, because a rather abrupt person came out from the toilet area, glanced at the bag I was holding and told us no eating and drinking is permitted in the gardens. Yes, there is a cafe, but it is small, somewhat basic in menu, and the coffee was tasteless. I think the price is a little steep for a family, but it was worth it to see the amazing, well kept gardens. It really was beautiful. In parts, it was a little difficult to access, but overall, it was worth it. Just make another area a picnic space, and that would be a great improvement!

A memorable experience
Jul 2021
After many years of wanting to see the gardens we eventually made it on a hot sunny day. Many interesting planting areas, all very well maintained, lots of shady places to sit and contemplate the plants. As quite a bit of the garden is terraced, which we knew before visit, it was not accessible to us as one of us had mobility issues. But we are so glad we went and we were still able to enjoy the upper gardens near the house and have tea and cake. We felt it was a shame the tea was served in paper cups but otherwise good. Opening days are quite limited hence why it took us many years to eventually get there.
