The world's tallest gravity fed fountain
Stanway lies midway between Broadway and Winchcombe. Many Cotswold towns within easy reach.
The Stanway Watergarden, one of the finest in England, was created in the 1720s for John Tracy. Typically Bridgemanic is the Canal, a magnificent formal sheet of water, situated unusually on a terrace 25 feet above the house, and the Cascade (the largest in Britain but in need of restoration), fed by water flowing under the Pyramid from the Pyramid Pond.
The Tithe Barn Pond adds to the watery feel of the garden, which also includes fine specimen trees, broad terraced lawns and herbaceous borders.
The Stanway estate has changed hands only once in over a thousand years. Originally owned by the abbots of Tewkesbury it was acquired by the family in the late 1500s. The house was built in 1580 on site of former dwelling.
