    A gem hidden away well worth a visit
    What an amazing place. The sculptures on display are amazing with such a variety of style. The Park is very well laid out and the QR codes on most sculptures are really informative in giving the artist's idea behind the sculpture. There is a small cafe on site with gives a limited selection but we found it excellent. Well worth a visit

    A hidden gem in the Cotswolds
    What a brilliant place to visit, full of incredible art works and sculptures along a lovely meandering woodland path. An unexpected pleasure for sure. Nice coffee and cake in the cafe too 🤗 Recommend *****

    Lovely sculpture park and excellent cafe
    We really enjoyed our visit to the Cotswold Sculpture Park. The sculptures are displayed along a winding trail through the grounds and there were more than 200 pieces to enjoy. The cafe was excellent, serving tasty and inexpensive lunches and cakes, with loads of options for vegetarians and vegans.

    Give this place a try - hidden gem
    What a fabulous place to visit. Some incredible pieces to enjoy. We spent a couple of hours walking around very good pathways and experiencing the small coffee shop for an excellent light lunch and cakes. Well done to all the staff and thank you

    Beauty among the bushes
    We had a wonderful time at the Sculpture Park, such a lovely area to walk round to see sculptures hidden in amongst flowers, trees and many plants. The small cafeteria was very welcoming and we had a delicious light lunch. Above all else I was able to use their all terrain mobility scooter which meant asa disabled person I was could enjoy the whole experience in comfort. Thank you to the lovely, helpful staff on duty that day.

    Good to see new arrivals
    Lots of new sculptures, lovely in the sunshine . Many grassed areas so don’t forget boots if visiting on a damp day . On the gardeners world BOGOF card , so bargain entrance fees if you have one . Handy free guide to sculpture titles , artists, material and pricing .

    Truly unique
    This is a sensory overload experience. There are so many different types of garden art that will entertain you and make you wonder at the skill and imagination of the various artists. I am not usually a fan of modern art but there is so much to marvel at. Not to be overlooked, something different. We were there for about two hours and had coffee looking at a huge car part sculpture. No spoilers just go for yourself.

    Fascinating sculptures around every corner
    200 original sculptures scattered over several acres in a wooded garden area. Good paths. WC and small cafe. Made a lovely walk. Children visiting thought it was great.

There is a small entry fee to the sculpture park which is worth every penny. There is a small cafe for you to eat in before or after your walk. The walk through the woodlands is like an outdoor art gallery. The sculptures come in all shapes and sizes and you are given a booklet before you head round advising what they are and the cost etc should you wish to purchase one. If you are not looking to purchase anything, as we were not this is still a really lovely little couple of hours out having a wander,

Only had a time for short visit but what a wonderful surprise and such helpful staff. (Saw a couple of them being so kind and really professional when there was a customer having a problem as we arrived).

Would like to stop by again to take it all in and have some warmer weather too, and have more than a quick drink in the cafe as well!

We weren’t really expecting very much from this place but we were very pleasantly surprised.

Hundreds of sculptures in a beautiful setting, plenty of space for you not to feel pressured into racing through the park.

Lovely. At least an hour worth of meandering around with the opportunity to purchase some beautiful things. Bit out of our price range mind!

From the moment we saw the entrance gates we realised this was going to be a much better experience than we expected.
We loved the scrap metal sculptures but were blown away by the whole park.
We would highly recommend this gem of a place to everybody but allow at least a half day to see everything & keep your eyes open.

This is a truly fabulous place, a real gem, and a thoroughly enjoyable way to spend a summer afternoon.

I would have given it 5 stars, but my only gripe is with the cafe. The menu and food in the cafe is absolutely fabulous, staff friendly and helpful, but why on earth are you serving coffee in nasty nasty non-recyclable p[aper/plastic cups??? It's terrible that cafes have got too lazy to bother washing up, and instead just chuck stuff away.

Thankfully we spotted a few proper crockery coffee cups tucked away in the kitchen, and the staff were happy to use these for us, but this should be the standard for everyone.

Everything else about this place is fabulous.

We stayed in the water tower for two nights and had an incredible, relaxing Bank Holiday getaway - beautiful, quirky and well-equipped accommodation in stunning surroundings and a really warm welcome from the staff (and dogs!). Would definitely recommend and would also definitely return.

Nice walk with some beautiful sculptures. Mostly flat, gravel, trails. I really enjoyed the various ones made out of mufflers.

Did not really know what to expect, and I am not really into "modern" sculpture, but this really was something else, and a lot bigger than I expected. Some truly wonderful works of art in a great setting. Well worth a visit if you are in the are, would highly recommend a visit, (and the exhibits change every year, so we will be going back!)
