A mile to the east of Uley, Owlpen Manor stands in its own remote valley on a steeply rising hillside above the Ewelme Brook. Beech woods crown the hill above the house, and Holy Cross church stands close and protectively behind. In 1951, Christopher Hussey wrote that Owlpen 'in its incomparably romantic situation is a dream made real', and it remains that way today.
Snowshill Manor stands on a gently sloping hillside in the Cotswolds, about four miles south west of the town of Chipping Camden. It is a fine old Manor House with a long history, famous for the eclectic collection of contents of its former owner, Charles Paget Wade, who laid out its intense succession of walled garden terraces between 1920 and 1923 on the site of the old farmyard.
An intricate piece of garden design, drawing on the fashion for architectural gardens in the early years of the twentieth century, Hidcote's immaculately preserved Arts and Crafts style continues to earn it a place amongst the leading gardens in England. High on a plateau in the Cotswolds between Chipping Camden and Stratford-upon-Avon, near the little village of Mickleton, the site has distant views across the counties of Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire.
A little piece of India in the Gloucestershire countryside, Sezincote's unique Mogul architecture of orange stone and onion domes gives a special spice to its surrounding gardens and landscape. Although close to the little town of Moreton-in-Marsh, it is a world away in style, with its statues of elephants and Brahmin Bulls, and exotic plants from around the world.
A stunning garden, created on a steep slope in the Cotswolds between Chipping Camden and Stratford-upon-Avon, near the little village of Mickleton, the site has distant views to the south and west across the Vale of Evesham. Its gardens make clever use of the steep site, offering a satisfying combination of the traditional and the modern and combining colourful planting with sculpture in a variety of styles.
