I was in England with a cousin visiting various gardens (e.g. Hestercombe, Durslade Farm, Hidcote) and this was our last stop. It was amazing! Lovely to see it and learn about the history. There weren't many people there so we had a lovely afternoon wandering...More

So much to see at this delightful garden. Remember this is a private house and garden and the owners should be respected for their rules. It was great to spend a quiet summers afternoon without the crowds you see at other locations. Don't take the...More

We visited the garden in August and it is undeniably historically important. The house is only open by appointment and to groups of twelve or more. It is a beautiful building. There are clear notices as you enter -- no children under 15, no buggies,...More

Simply sublime, my favourite garden in the whole country. The parkland, vistas and walled garden are all fabulous, the arcadian pools and river setting simply beautiful. On a sunny day the sinuous rill can only mean you are in Xanadu.

The grounds of Rousham House are an example of early English landscape garden and are quite thrilling if you are interested in the history of garden design. Created in part by William Kent, there remain many follies, temples, pools and statues that date to the...More

Walking through these gardens is like walking through a series of 17th century landscape paintings. Buttercup fields, woodland walks, lawns and statuary create a series of vistas, all set in peaceful Cotswold countryside. There are plenty of seats around, but the best part is that...More

Spent a very pleasant few hours at 17th-18th century Rousham Gardens. Many of the original features including ponds, cascades and follies still exist. Lovely views of the River Cherwell .The very attractive walled gardens are located behind the house, with a large dove cot within...More
