The Garden at Miserden

This lovely, timeless, walled garden overlooks a deer park and the rolling Cotswold hills of the Golden Valley beyond. Designed in the 17th century, the garden still retains a wonderful sense of peace and tranquillity with a topiary yew walk and quaint grass steps designed by the architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, who also redesigned a wing of Miserden Park. The Park was built in 1620 and although the house is not open to the public, it provides a wonderful backdrop to the garden especially when covered in Wisteria in the spring.

The Garden is well known for its magnificent mixed borders, amongst the longest in private ownership. They contain a wonderful wide range of roses, clematis, shrubs and herbaceous plants that provide colour right through from spring to autumn. Other magical features of the garden which has spanned generations include a 200 year old Sycamore tree that has grown through a Cotswold stone wall, an ancient mulberry tree planted in 1620, a rill with fountain and stone summerhouse and an impressive new spiral of dahlias.
