As featured on BBC2's Gardeners' World


Bourton House Garden features luxuriant terraces and wide herbaceous borders with stunning plant, texture and colour combinations.

Imaginative topiary includes a knot garden, parterre and topiary walk and there are several spring-fed water features including a raised basket pond from the Great Exhibition of 1851.

You will also find a unique Shade House, a serene White Garden and many creatively planted pots.

A raised 18th century walk provides an enticing link to the Cotswold landscape beyond.

Visitors to the garden are also invited to enjoy the walk in our seven acre field (opened to the public in 2013) which visits groups of specimen trees planted in 1994/95. A free guide to the trees is available with tickets to the garden.

Beautiful to visit in any season, Bourton House Garden also presents a magnificent late summer flourish when many gardens have run their course.  It keeps on going and getting better and better; the end of September/beginning of October its fantastic – until the frosts come.

We hope you enjoy your visit.

Bourton House Garden is now closed. We will re-open for our 2022 season on April 1st.
