Delightful English country garden

Full of variety, this charming garden shows the English country style at its best.

Peaceful water gardens and herbaceous borders, with organically shaped topiary, demonstrate an imaginative use of colour and planting, creating unexpected vistas.

Stroll through the arboretum with its wonderful species of trees and naturally planted spring bulbs.

Stop and smell the roses

The roses are in full bloom now, heralding the beginning of summer.

The Bards are back

This July The HandleBards return to The Courts Garden and this time they have packed 'Hamlet' and 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' onto their saddles.

With nothing but their cycling gear (plus heaps of talent and creativity) this quartet of pedalling actors will perform two of Shakespeare's most iconic plays. The group tour the UK on their bicycles and will once again stop at The Courts Garden.
