4 days

From £875

Activity Level:

Summary

Our tour of the Cotswolds features an exclusive visit to Highgrove House, 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.

Some of the finest gardens in England are to be found nestled among the green and rolling hills of Gloucestershire. Broughton Grange is a spectacular garden designed by multiple Chelsea Flower Show Gold medal Winner Tom Stuart-Smith, while Hidcote Manor is among the best known gardens in Britain. Further highlights include the houses and gardens of Rodmarton Manor and Sezincote, a fine Victorian walled garden at Cerney House and some splendid specimen trees at Batsford Arboretum.

Please note, by the very nature of this holiday, the running order of the tour is subject to change as we are beholden to a successful application for admittance to Highgrove which will be confirmed in February 2021.

Tour highlights:

  • Weaving through the magical meadows of Highgrove
  • Discovering the secret gardens at Hidcote
