Kiftsgate Court Gardens

Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire

Quick Guide
See below grid for details

This garden is the creation of three generations of women gardeners. Started by Heather Muir in the 1920's, continued by Diany Binny from 1950 and now looked after by Anne Chambers and her husband.

This informal garden is a riot of colour all through the year.

Spring sees daffodils line the drive while the White Sunken Garden promises blooms.

During the summer months, roses dominate, of special note being Rosa filipes 'Kiftsgate'. These, together with hydrangeas and a wisteria, provide a pleasant environment to take a stroll. 

In contrast to this the current owners have constructed a water garden designed by Simon Allison, which is flower-free and minimalist in appearance.

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far more information.

Please let us know any other information that we can add to the Grid(s) or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you quote both the Page Ref and Topic or Section references from the Grid below. To print the planning grid select it then right click and print the selected area.

Please submit information on locations you discover so that this system continues to grow.
