Cotswolds Misarden Park Gardens, Gloucestershire

Well off the tourist trail these delightful gardens are set in the depths of the Cotswold countryside between Stroud and Cirencester. They are reached along narrow lanes running through bluebell woods and grass verges covered with wood anemones, primroses and cowslips. There are small signs to the gardens, but they are easy to miss. You need to want to come here.

For those who enjoy gardens, they are well worth the effort of finding. The gardens are on a hillside overlooking the attractively named Golden Valley.

Apart from two gardeners and the owner walking his two dogs, we were the only visitors. All stopped to talk to us and we were made to feel very welcome.

These are lovely gardens, lovingly tended and with hardly a weed in sight.

Two long carefully trimmed coniferous hedges with a grassy walk lead down to a small water feature with a fountain. There are long herbaceous borders which lead down to the lovely C17th stone built manor house (private).

Mid April was a bit too early to see them at their full glory.

There is a small orchard with fruit trees and parkland with mature trees and wide gravel paths, so it is easy to spend some hours wandering here. There are no tourist facilities in the gardens. Next to the gardens is a nursery with a cafe in one of the greenhouses. Their website also gives details of four different walks in the estate.

The post code is GL6 7JA and the grid reference is SO 940089.
