The Garden at Miserden

The Gardens at Miserden
One of the top 10 most romantic gardens in the world

Lose your heart in one of the world’s most romantic gardens. Garden writer Anna Pavord picks ten of her favourite gardens to visit that will sweep you off your feet.
~ Anna Pavord, Gardens Illustrated.

This lovely, timeless garden, with spectacular views over a deer park and rolling Cotswold hills beyond, was designed in the 17th Century and still retains a wonderful sense of peace and tranquillity. There are extensive yew hedges, including a notable topiary yew walk designed by Lutyens as well as some magnificent mixed borders, which contain a wide range of roses, clematis, shrubs and herbaceous plants that provide colour right through from spring to autumn. An ancient mulberry tree, believed to be planted in 1620, and the rill with fountain and stone summerhouse, built to commemorate the Millennium, are two other magical features in the history of this garden which has spanned generations. The Garden at Miserden truly is a hidden gem in the very heart of the Cotswolds.

Gardens Illustrated

Our visit to these wonderful gardens was enhanced by a beautiful sunny autumnal day. The views were terrific and many benches provided at strategic points to make the most of them. We spent much longer meandering around than we had planned for we did not want to miss any part of the experience….
