About Kiftsgate Court Garden
Kiftsgate Court was built by Sydney Graves Hamilton between 1887-1891. He already owned the large manor house in Mickleton and in 1918 Kiftsgate Court was sold to Mr and Mrs J.B. Muir. It was Heather Muir who was largely responsible for establishing the magnificent gardens we see today.
Interestingly, Kiftsgate Court remains in the hands of descendants of Heather Muir, it is the women of the family who have stamped their love of gardening on the land. The house, standing on its gracious Cotswold landscape, with gardens tumbling over gentle slopes, is nothing less than the avid plantsman's dream come true, it has an abundance of rare shrubs, plants and exotic flowers collected from all over the world.
Visitors to Kiftsgate Court Garden find their eyes being drawn towards something special at every turn they take. The range is as diverse as a magnificent White Sunken Garden with pool and ancient well-head carved with figures representing changing seasons, to a modern Water Garden laid out on what was once the Tennis Court, and a fabulous Mediterranean Garden showing delicate plants from warmer climes.
One of the most beautiful parts of the garden was originally the work of Heather Muir, she began the stunning, scented rose garden. Here visitors can see a mix of varieties including the famous Kiftsgate Rose, developed by Heather.
A tour of the gardens includes strolling through colourful flower beds, banks of yew, the beautiful rose walk, across richly planted terraces on down to the delightful Summer House, and through to the woods in which springtime bluebells form a vibrant ground cover.
Arguably Kiftsgate Court's near neighbour Hidcote Manor is better known for its garden, yet here at Kiftsgate in its beautiful setting is a seemingly uncontrived, intimate garden, which the visitor immediately senses is a dedication of enthusiasm and love. The attraction of Kiftsgate is further enhanced by fabulous views over the lovely Vale of Evesham and picturesque Cotswold countryside.
The garden is planned to show year round colour but many find the garden at its best during spring and early summer.
Teas are available and there is a plant sales area.
