Description of Garden

A rare and beautiful collection of trees, shrubs and wild flowers located in 55 acres of spectacular Cotswold countryside. Wander along magical meandering paths alongside streams amongst Magnolias, Candelabra, Primulas, and Japanese Cherry blossom. In autumn, the trees explode into reds, deep purples, yellows and gold set against the bottle green of the evergreen foliage. Find the Hermit's cave and Foo Dog. Relax in the Japanese Rest House with stunning views across the Evenlode Valley. Make a wish with the Buddha and then negotiate past the waterfall. Eternal peace and intimacy in wonderful surroundings.

History Of Garden

In 1897 Algernon Bertram Freeman Mitford rebuilt Batsford House and planted trees in a style that he had seen as part of his travels as British Envoy in Japan and China. In 1916 Lord Dulverton developed the Arboretum with further plantings. In 1984 Batsford Foundation was established as a charitable trust.
