Had the pleasure of visiting the lovely village of Rousham on a sunny august day, Only wondered around the gardens, which are very well kept and very colourful. The house is also very stunning. Well worth a visit, look at the church as well.

Beautiful gardens, especially the foxgloves which had seeded into the rose garden, a fantastic sight. No children under the age of 15 and no dogs.

The walled garden would be more interesting during summer, however the extensive landscape gardens would be beautiful to visit at any time. Hope you enjoy.
