Buscot House and Gardens

A drive to Swindon to view sofas, which was not successful, was made a little better for a lovely drive back through the Cotswolds.  We stopped at Buscot House and Gardens, had a picnic lunch, a saunter round the walled garden, and a tour round the house. We've visited many times, and the plantings in the walled garden and the orchards are maturing.

I love the clock tower above the old stables.

 Great plantings

Long borders with a dramatic backdrop of trees.

We sat and chatted and enjoyed the long views.


  1. I'll have to put this one on my list of gardens to visit

    1. This National Trust house and gardens has limited opening as is still lived in. A good time to visit would be a little earlier in the year. There are some elegant walks among trees, well worth several hours...and of course there are many other gardens in the area too.
