Owner description: Wyndcliffe Court Gardens are Grade II listed and designed in the Arts and Crafts style. Designed by H. Avray Tipping, friend of Gertrude Jekyll and Editor of Country Life magazine, they were completed in 1922 and are probably the best example of their type in Wales. With sculpted topiary, a sunken garden, a summerhouse, walled gardens, fountains, lily ponds and a bowling lawn leading on to wooded walks, they are a national treasure not to be missed. Now open to the public on a regular basis, they are showcasing contemporary sculptures by local and well-known British artists. The collection features hundreds of sculptures in a wide variety of mediums, sizes and styles situated throughout the garden and offering the opportunity to view and purchase beautiful sculpture with an outstanding backdrop.Open Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays from 11am - 6pm. (Also opening Wednesday to Sunday in July and August) Annual entrance to the gardens is £6 (pay once and return the rest of the year for free!) Discounts for pre-booked group visits and coach companies.

“A little bit of magic!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

What a find! Wonderful gardens, beautiful sculptures and tea on the terrace. The Summer Sculptures Exhibition was more than I had hoped for and the many garden rooms showed them off to best effect. A delicious meal of soup, sandwiches and homemade cake - and great coffee! - was served by lovely, attentive ladies. I will return soon when family from Cumbria visit me in Gloucestershire. I purchased a small sculpture,

“A great morning stroll”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Visited for a second time but this time with my Mum who was visiting the area. As expected she loved it! A beautiful garden with sculptures to be discovered all around it. The staff were all very helpful and attentive with coffee & cake after our walk around the garden.

This garden is free to enter but a suggested donation of £2 per person is perfectly reasonable!

Will be visiting again!

“Magical. A surprise around every corner”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Having lived only 20 minutes away from Wyndcliffe for 20 years I can't believe I've only just found it and its beautiful gardens.
A quick sandwich lunch was followed by a stroll through the gardens to check out the Autumn Sculpture Show. Great idea to show off these sculptures in a garden setting (and not a gallery). Prices ranged from £15 to £10,000 but with lots of affordable pieces.
The gardens are lovely and the views over the Severn estuary glorious
Will definitely visit again - but will probably wait for the next sculpture exhibition

“Great gardens & art”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Loved the gardens and the art, lovely setting and views, bit disapointed regarding no access to the house. Make sure you drive out the way you came in.

“Lovely day out”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is a gem to visit, a beautilful house is a great backdrop to the gardens and sculptures. We spent a lot of time walking around the gardens and still I think we missed a few scuptures. They are positioned in each of the 'rooms' in the gardens and you come across them at every turn. We had a lovely cream tea and later on a sandwich, very well presented and tables set on a sunny terrace. (The wasps were a nuisance but then this is Britain). The only slight critisism is that if could be signposted better from the main road, our satnav took us up a very narrow lane. I will definately visit again.
