Summary

Our Premium Tour of the Cotswold’s features an exclusive visit to Highgrove Gardens, the country home of HRH The Prince of Wales. This will be a rare opportunity to see these fascinating gardens which of course are cultivated using wholly organic methods.

To complement this, we have selected some of the finest gardens to be found in the region, beginning with Broughton Grange, set in a stunning location overlooking a valley in the heart of Oxfordshire and designed by multiple Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal winner Tom Stuart Smith. We visit Batsford Arboretum, home to over 2850 specimens with a focus on those originating from the Far East and we head to the secluded and romantic Cerney Gardens, which are the work of Lady Angus and her daughter who have painstakingly developed the gardens in recent years. We also visit Chavenage House, an Elizabethan Manor house constructed of local Cotswold stone and most featured in the BBC TV series ‘Poldark’, and the ‘Arts and Crafts’ house of Rodmarton Manor, whose fine garden comprises a series of ‘outdoor rooms’, each with its own distinctive character and charm. Finally, we head to Sezincote where the gardens were transformed and restored in 1968 by Sir Cyril and Lady Kleinwort with guidance from Graham Stuart Thomas before we return to our original joining points.

Please note, by the very nature of this holiday, the running order of the tour and the tour dates are subject to change as we are beholden to a successful application for admittance to Highgrove which will be confirmed in Spring 2022
