We enjoyed a visit to Painswick Rococo Garden to view their lovely display of snowdrops as can be seen in this photograph.


We had a very pleasant day at the National Trust property of Baddesley Clinton, as you can see in the attached photograph.


Lydney Park Gardens with its spring flowers and views over the River Severn was another enjoyable visit as can be seen in the photograph below.


Burrow Farm Gardens in East Devon on a glorious sunny May day were a delight. With 65 acres to see the picture below only reveals a corner of the beautifully planted garden.


Our next event will be the May Holiday to Northampton followed in late June by a visit to Hidcote and Blockley Village. More details of our visits can be found on the Events page.

We have made a reservation at the Holiday Inn, Northampton. We have reverted to five nights for this holiday as it is not widely realised that there is a very high concentration of country houses in Northamptonshire many with interesting gardens and it is for this reason that we have chosen this area for the holiday. The gardens are not household names like Chatsworth but I think you will find the variety of the gardens rewarding. Northampton is not a long journey but it is too far to be practical to visit in a day.

Regretfully this holiday is fully booked
