Kiftsgate Court Gardens near Chipping Campden has been created through the inspiration and creativity of three generations of women gardeners.

The layout of Kiftsgate Court is designed in a series of small gardens each joined by the other and each with a distinctive character. Kiftsgate Court Gardens began in the 1920's by the grandmother of the present owners of Kiftsgate Court. The plants in the gardens are a plant lovers dream with a collection from all over the world that includes shrubs, herbaceuos and roses.

The tour of the gardens begins at the "Four Squares" here Ceanothus and Viburnum grow side by side with roses and compete for your attention with the gorgeous views of the Malverns and the distant Bredon Hill. Following the path through the "White Sunk Garden" and the flowing borders you arrive at the infamous Rosa filipes "Kiftsgate Rose" a giant amongst roses and it is said to be the largest rose in England, having grown to 50 feet in height and spreading through the copper beech tree - Fagus sylvatica 'Purpurea'.

Continuing through the gardens the eyes will be divided between the plants and the stunning views of the surrounding countryside on the edge of the Cotswolds to the far hills of the Malverns and Wales beyond.

The gardens are planted around Kiftsgate Court built between 1887-91 and although the best times to visit should be June and July there is still something to see all year.

Facilities at Kiftsgate Court Gardens include toilets, plant sales and lunches are available during June and July also home-made teas are available.
