Miserden is a family-run, rural estate overlooking the Golden Valley in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Cotswolds. The estate encompasses 850 acres of woodland, farmland and gardens providing a sanctuary for wildlife.
This lovely, timeless garden, with spectacular views over a deer park and rolling Cotswold hills beyond, was designed in the 17th Century and still retains a wonderful sense of peace and tranquillity. There are extensive yew hedges, including a notable topiary yew walk designed by Lutyens as well as some magnificent mixed borders, which contain a wide range of roses, clematis, shrubs and herbaceous plants that provide colour right through from spring to autumn. An ancient mulberry tree, believed to be planted in 1620, and the rill with fountain and stone summerhouse, built to commemorate the Millennium, are two other magical features in the history of this garden which has spanned generations. The Garden at Miserden truly is a hidden gem in the very heart of the Cotswolds.
