Kiftsgate Court Gardens

Kiftsgate Court Gardens, near Chipping Campden

Kiftsgate Court Gardens are magnificently situated garden on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment with views towards the Malvern Hills.

The gardens planted around the late 19th century  Kiftsgate House are planted to give harmonious colour schemes, whilst the sheltered lower garden is home to more tender plants. Heather Muir created the garden from sloping woods and was helped by. Heather was helped  by her lifelong friend Lawrence Johnston who created Hidcote just 1 mile away. Since then the Garden has been developed and improved by two more women gardeners, the present one being Anne Chambers.
Walk down steep paths to a beautiful pool on a terrace which is hidden from the rest of the garden, with the most fantastic views over the Cotswolds as well as plenty of places to sit to take in the atmosphere.
There are tulips in the Spring, but the roses are the true highlight of the garden - scrambling over trees and shrubs, but more formal ones too! There is a modern Garden Pool which was created for reflections, many people love but many do not!
June and July are the best months to visit for colour and scent but there is something to see all year round at Kiftsgate Court.
This garden should not be missed and is one of our favourites in the Cotswolds.
