How have I lived in this part of the Cotswolds for 7 years and never visited Bourton House Garden??
An award-winning three-acre garden surrounding a fine 18th century Manor House on the outskirts of Moreton in the Marsh, this delightful 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. An abundance of unusual, rare and exotic plants make this garden a delight for the dedicated plantsman.
Aside from the fact that there’s a Tythe Barn, very beautiful in itself on-site which offers freshly made sandwiches, cakes and teas and a lovely garden area for seating (and in my case to exercise a toddler in) there’s nothing more I need to say at this stage.. just take a look for yourselves.
The garden is open from Tuesday – Friday, 10am – 5pm – April – October. Closed Easter Weekend and Bank Holidays
