Early spring view of Red Borders

One of the country’s great gardens, Hidcote is an Arts and Crafts masterpiece in the north Cotswolds, a stone’s throw from Stratford-upon-Avon. Created by the talented American horticulturist, Major Lawrence Johnston.

A garden of rooms

Secret gardens and magnificent vistas are linked by narrow paved pathways. Plants bursting with colour come from far and wide, some collected by Johnston himself on his many plant hunting trips. 

Exploring the surrounding landscape

For a brief time the Monarch’s Way path runs from the car park and into the traditional Cotswold hamlet of Hidcote Bartrim.  Traditionally thatched stone cottages that were once home to Johnston’s gardeners, give the atmosphere of a forgotten era.

A network of public footpaths also lead from the car park with great views over the Vale of Evesham and the Cotswolds.
