Our visit to these wonderful gardens was enhanced by a beautiful sunny autumnal day. The views were terrific and many benches provided at strategic points to make the most of them. We spent much longer meandering around than we had planned for we did not want to miss any part of the experience. Mobility might be a problem although much is accessible. We visited at the end of the season but there was still so much to see. We had the gardens to ourselves. This is a truly hidden gem. Do not expect an ice cream van or even a cafe but there are loos. Sturdy shoes are a must. Sadly the intriguing house is not open but the adjacent nursery is as well as a pub in the village nearby.

Allow maybe an hour to visit the gardens. The house is beautiful but not open to the public.I belong to the Historic Houses Association so entry was free but otherwise £6 in an honesty box. The gardens are varied with interesting features such as fountains, topariary and the varied plants. Many benches to sit and admire the scenery. Surrounded by fields of sheep and beautiful Cotswold landscape. There is a Nursery next door and a pub in the village for drinks, toilets and lunch etc. No facilities at the property. Worth a visit.

These gardens are in the grounds of a house belonging to a Tobacco Family. They not open at the times you might expect so it is worth checking (the website has errors - even the spelling of the place is not consistent on the website!) and then arranging your schedule around the opening times. You are allowed to walk on the grass and actually you need to to access some parts of the gardens so wear footwear which will protect you if it is likely to be wet underfoot.

These gardens are close by but I hadn't seen them advertised greatly. They are open just a few days a week but are a must see for all keen gardeners. The gardens are beautifully kept with varied flora. The view is splendid and the village itself stunning English, Cotswold-stone at its best. There are no refreshments here but ice-creams are available in the nursery and the village pub is very close by. I will be taking visitors here again.
