North Cotswold Gardens

Bath from £495

Hidcote Manor gardens with their outdoor ‘rooms’ and planting for all seasons by the National Trust were the creation of American Arts and Crafts enthusiast Lawrence Johnston a century ago. Close by is Kiftsgate Court, a sloping garden on the very edge of the Cotswolds with wonderful views over the Vale of Evesham, developed lovingly by successive generations of one family and now given a modern touch.  Snowshill Manor, also managed by the National Trust, and once home to an eccentric collector, also has lovely hillside gardens influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement.  We stop to see the beautiful honey-coloured limestone Cotswold village of Broadway with its many former coaching inns, once home to an illustrious colony of writers and artists including John Singer Sargent who painted his famous ‘Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose’ while living here.
