Garden holiday to Highgrove and the Cotswolds

Tuesday, June 23, 2020 12:01 AM - Thursday, June 25, 2020 12:01 AM

The highlight of this three-day tour is a visit to Highgrove, the country home of our Patron, HRH The Prince of Wales, where we will enjoy a two-hour guided tour followed by lunch in the Orchard Restaurant.

We will also visit the quintessentially English Hidcote Manor Garden with its inter-connected ‘rooms’ of hedges, rare trees, shrubs and herbaceous borders; the 20th Century Arts and Crafts Kiftsgate Court Gardens, designed across three generations by Heather Muir, Diany Binny and Anne Chambers, and the 14-acre garden at Eastleach House with its box paths, hedge henge and aromatic Mediterranean planting.

Dinner, bed and breakfast will be provided at the Mercure Gloucester Bowden Hall Hotel and we will benefit from the services of a Brightwater Tour Manager.

The booking form is available upon request.
