The most interesting gardens are situated on an escarpment with spectacular views of the Cotswolds. They are terraced with steep steps to access the various levels. Most of the paths and steps are uneven and are challenging for many, especially those with mobility problems. Those depending on scooters have very restricted access, and those in wheelchairs or with buggies also... More

On a sunny day (perhaps even a rainy one) this terrific garden seems to epitomise old England: The nice lady selling tickets and guidebooks, the tearoom, the wonderful plants, the panoramic views from the Cotswolds to the Vale of Evesham and the slightly idiosyncratic opening times. I'm not sure why they don't open until 2pm in August or why lunch... More

We called in Kiftsgate en-route to Bourton on the Water and used our Gardeners World 241 card, an absolute bargain £8 for the two of us. The house and gardens are privately owned (the house not open to the public) unlike nearby Hidcote Manor Garden, which is a National Trust property. It was a hot sunny day for our visit... More

Just north of Chipping Campden you'll find two houses with gardens open to the public. Today I'm doing Kifsgate but there's also Hidcote which is equally good if more formal. Kifsgate had lovely gardens set on the western edge of the Cotswold escarpment which provides the perfect Eco climate. Lots of cottage garden planting in colour themes for maximum visual... More

They are near a popular National Trust property, but you must visit these gardens. They are simply stunning and well designed and relaxing and not so busy which is great. They have a lovely cafe with nice home made food, though a little expensive, i paid nearly £9 for a coronation chicken salad,,

The different styles make this garden a delight to wander round. The views and landscapes are exploited wonderfully. Very hot day when we visited just a shame we couldn't have a swim in the pool!

Beautiful gardens and a great day out in combination with Hidcote Manor Gardens. Ample parking and a lovely tea room. Not really wheelchair of pushchair friendly.

I visited Kiftsgate in June with a large group of enthusiastic gardeners. Wonderfully creative landscaping with unusual planting. Numerous unusual plants to admire. Oh joy, plants similar to those in the gardens, on sale at sensible cost. I couldn't resist buying some to plant in my own garden. Those not able to climb steps will miss a large part of... More

Second visit to this wonderful garden, just missed the best of the rose but the rest of the garden still stunning. Had a lovely piece of fruit cake in the cafe. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Though relatively small, the gardens offer a wonderful variety of flowers and shrubs. The landscaping is wonderful, and the views from the lower garden truly breathtaking. Very well worth a visit!
