Award-winning historic formal garden, full of character.
About The Garden at Miserden
Nestled in the lush Cotswold Hills is Miserden, recent winner of Historic Houses Garden of the Year and a garden which has managed to retain much of its 17th-century charm even as the world has evolved around it.
Mature yew hedges provide a velvety green backdrop to borders which zing with colour from spring to autumn thanks to an inspired mix of shrubs and herbaceous plants. If it’s original features you’re after, Miserden has them in spades. From the magnificent Mulberry tree that dates back to 1620 to the rustic stone summerhouse and light-filled cafe housed in a striking converted glasshouse. The rose-draped pergola adds a heady splash of romance to proceedings and there is the ever-present visage of the house itself, draped with Wisteria, which provides a beautiful backdrop to the garden.
This garden also scores points with eco-friendly gardeners for its commitment to greening the estate, as evident in the hedgerows and untamed field margins where birds and dormice happily flit about. Touches of the contemporary extend to the Garden Cafe, which serves a delicious collection of cakes and some excellent teas and coffees.
