Cotswold Spring Gardens

4* Cheltenham Chase Hotel. Blenheim Palace & Gardens, Painswick Rococo Garden, National Arboretum at Westonbirt, Hidcote Gardens, Kiftgate Court Gardens

Thursday 17 May

Our first visit of the tour is to the splendid Blenheim Palace and Gardens. The Formal Gardens surround the Palace, and they include the majestic Water Terraces, the Duke's Private Italian Garden, the tranquil Secret Garden with all of its hidden treasures, the new Churchill Memorial Garden and the beautifully delicate Rose Garden.  Our hotel is the 4* Cheltenham Chase Hotel.


Friday 18 May

Today we travel to the city of Gloucester to explore at leisure.  Enjoy the regenerated Gloucester Quays around the old docks, or take a visit to the Cathedral.  This afternoon we visit the unique Painswick Rococo Garden.  Created in the 1740’s at a time when garden design was in transition, previously, gardens had been formal, regular in layout and usually sited close to the dwelling.  Now they were light-hearted, flamboyant and even frivolous.  Features were included to surprise the visitor and make them smile.


Saturday 19 May

This morning we take a visit to Tetbury where you can browse the boutique shops before continuing to the National Arboretum at Westonbirt.   This collection of over 2500 different species offers a breathtaking display of spring colour to enjoy.


Sunday 20 May

This morning we visit one of the jewels in the Cotswolds, Hidcote Gardens.  It is one of the best-known and most influential Arts and Crafts gardens in Britain, with its linked "rooms" of hedges, rare trees, shrubs and herbaceous borders.  This afternoon we visit the neighbouring Kiftsgate Court Gardens, developed by three generations of women gardeners, set on the edge of a spectacular escarpment looking out over the Cotswolds.


Monday 21 May

We depart for home with a lunch stop in the city of Oxford.
