Bourton House Garden, Bourton on the Hill is traditional in style but with a flamboyant undercurrent.
Immaculate topiary, taking the form of a Topiary Walk, a serene Knot Garden with a raised Basket Pond from the Great Exhibition of 1985 and an extravagant Parterre, all compliment the classical lines of the 18th century manor house. Magnificent herbaceous borders and terraces filled with rare, unusual and exotic plants in surprising combinations of colour, shape and texture add much excitement.
There is a White Garden planted for interest in every season, water features, a unique Shad House and many creatively planted pots. The design of the garden incorporates the repeating theme of the 'ogee' arch, in clipped yew panels, metal work and trellis work - all within 3 acres! There is also a mowed walk in the 7 acre pasture opposite the house, taking in groups of specimen trees following a guide written by former Head Gardener, Paul Nicholls. The magnificent Grade 1 Listed 16th Century tithe barn houses a tearoom, serving light refreshments and homemade cakes, a gift shop selling cards, unusual gifts and vintage collectables (May to September only).
Bourton House Garden is located in the picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Hill in the North Cotswolds, on the A44 just two miles from the market town Moreton-in-Marsh. The garden is close to many other 'must see' Cotswold tourist attractions, including Batsford Arboretum and Sezincote House. Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Campden and Broadway are just a short drive away, with their many independent shops and art galleries.
