Buscot Park and Gardens, near Lechlade
To enjoy Buscot Park to the full, you should take time to explore the extensive gardens that surround this late 18th century house.
The Buscot Park Gardens are situated in outstanding countryside on the edge of the Cotswolds and near to the River Thames.
To the west, mellow red brick walls shelter a garden for all seasons ( 4 Seasons Garden ), spring bulbs, flowering trees, climbing roses and drifts of multi coloured day lilies as well as fruit and interplanted with vegetables.
To the east, woodland walks lead to one of England's finest water gardens designed by Harold Peto and installed in 1904, an unusual marriage of Italian formality in an English landscape. Canals with bridges and pools lead you down to a large lake.
The historic house is also well worth visiting so make sure you visit when it is open.
