Our second trip of 2008 is one of three full day outings planned in co-operation with Adrian Thomas of Burley-in-Wharfedale who so ably organised our last trip of 2007.

This is to Hidcote Manor and Gardens in Gloucestershire which boasts a celebrated 20th-century garden in the beautiful north Cotswolds.


One of England's greatest gardens, an Arts & Crafts masterpiece with a series of outdoor rooms each with its own unique character, Old roses, unusual plants and trees from around the world all nestled in the Cotswolds with stunning panoramas across the Vale of Evesham. A resturant is available.

After some time here, we move on to Kiftsgate Court which is a series of interconnecting gardens each with its distinct character and secrets. The gardens are a plantsman's delight reflecting the pleasure the family has had collecting species from all over the world. At any time of the year there is something of interest to draw you back again and again.

The upper gardens surrounding the house are planted to give harmonious colour schemes, whilst the sheltered lower gardens provide a home for plants from warmer climes and recreate the atmosphere of the Mediterranean.

Tearooms and plant sales are on offer and of course, the famous Kiftsgate Roses!
