Hidcote Manor and Kiftsgate Court

A few weeks ago we spent 10 glorious days in the Cotswolds and whilst there managed to squeeze in a garden or two. We spent some time at Hidcote, a garden created by Lawrence Johnson, which later became the first garden taken on by the National Trust. It is a fantastic garden and it was not the first time that we had visited.

We also visted Kiftsgate Court, a garden that is just down the road from Hidcote, and one that I would recommend. It has been gardened by three generations of women, with help and inspiration coming from Lawrence Johnson when he was a friend to the Muir family.
