Reviews and comments on Sudeley Castle Gardens


The award-winning gardens at Sudeley Castle are a gardener’s delight. The stunning setting, in a bowl of the Cotswold Hills, leads the eye down to the elegant parkland, the carefully restored gardens and the Castle itself. Wander around romantic ruins festooned in clematis, through rose-scented arbours and see the splendour of the Castle reflected in the tranquil carp pond.

Discover the varied styles of garden, from formal topiary to natural planting and herbal healing plants. The jewel in the crown of the ‘Queen of the Cotswolds’ is the Queens Garden, created on a Tudor parterre, where burgeoning old-fashioned roses in myriad colours perfume the air.

Lady Ashcombe has worked with renowned garden designers including Sir Roddy Llewellyn and Rosemary Verey to restore the themed gardens. Planting is designed to provide variety and colour throughout the Castle’s open season, from tulips in the Spring to Summer bedding and roses, then tender plants take centre stage in the Autumn. Sudeley is gardened organically, under Head Gardener Jon and his team, with a strong emphasis of encouraging all forms of wildlife.

Sudeley will be offering Garden Tours guided by horticulturist Lyn Hall during 2013; together with Gardening for Wildlife Tours which highlight how to encourage wildlife in your own garden. The Sudeley Castle website provides details of dates and ticket prices.

Open Daily from 17th March to 3rd November 2013.
