Bourton House Garden
An award-winning three acre garden with a tranquil atmosphere and inspirational planting, set within beautiful Cotswold countryside. The garden surrounds a fine 18th century Manor House and Grade I listed 16th century Tithe Barn and features magnificent wide herbaceous borders, imaginative topiary, a serene White Garden, spring-fed water features, unique Shade House and many creatively planted pots. Head Gardener Paul Nicholls is responsible for the planting schemes; his use of tender, rare and exotic plants coupled with an imaginative colour palette will excite both the dedicated plantsman and the garden enthusiast.
A firm favourite with group organisers from all over the world, Bourton House Garden is a delight to visit at any time of year but is absolutely glorious in the summer months. In 2013, a new walk was opened in the seven acre pasture opposite the garden. A guide to the groups of specimen trees visited on the walk is available to all garden visitors.
In 2006, Bourton House Garden won the prestigious HHA/Christie's 'Garden of the Year' award and in 2013 won Cotswolds Tourism's silver award for 'Small Visitor Attraction of the Year'.
