( — February 4, 2014) Honeybourne — Garden lovers, rejoice! A new Garden Tour that explores the best of Cotswold Gardens has arrived – and you’ll be amazed at the unprecendented access to these celebrated gardens travelers will enjoy.


Cotswold Walks focuses on the true experience of immersion into the beautiful Cotswold countryside – with an expert. This Cotswold-based company has over 20 years of experience showcasing the region to visitors.


“We do have one problem,” owner Andrew Guppy confesses. “Travelers that go on our tours never want to go home. The incredible landscapes experienced on our walks, combined with the intimate local knowledge of the tour guides, leave a remarkable impression.” The guides provide both an insider’s familiarity with the Cotswolds, and a scholar’s knowledge of the topic.


The Cotswold Gardens tour is led by Amanda Patton, an expert garden designer, professional garden illustrator, author, and former BBC broadcaster. Her history of leading bespoke tours of private gardens naturally led to this tour with Cotswold Walks.


The Cotswold Gardens tour focuses on the best of 20th-century English garden design, including the history and inspiration for each garden. The tour kicks off with a glimpse of over 25 hidden gardens on an afternoon of exploration, and then moves on to major gardens known around the world.


Guests will be able to explore and learn about Hidcote Manor Gardens, Rockcliffe Garden, the exceptional gardens at Temple Guiting Manor, the hidden private garden of Upton Wold, the gardens at Asthall Manor (and the influence and connections to the Mitford sisters), several gardens at Barnsley House (one of the most romantic places in England), and the gardens at Througham Court.


Guests stay at the highly-rated and much-loved Dormy House Hotel and Barnsley House. Meals and transfers are included.


The expertly-guided Cotswold Garden Tour starts on June 22, 2014, and runs for 5 nights/6 days.
