Whichford & Ascott Gardens

Shipston-on-Stour

The gardens in this group reflect many different styles. The two villages are in an AONB, nestled within a dramatic landscape of hills, pasture and woodland, which is used to picturesque effect by the garden owners. Fine lawns, mature shrub planting and much interest to plantsmen provide a peaceful visit to a series of beautiful gardens. Many incorporate the inventive use of natural springs, forming ponds, pools and other water features. Classic cottage gardens contrast with larger and more classical gardens which adopt variations on the traditional English garden of herbaceous borders, climbing roses, yew hedges and walled enclosures.

    Many visitors find the gardens of Whichford and Ascott group are a very special discovery.

    They are hidden away in a valley on the South West edge of the County of Warwickshire where the heavy clay has contributed difficult but ultimately rewarding soil conditions.

    The gardens have been chosen to provide great interest to the garden lover, and include a completely new garden, a postage stamp garden, a cottage garden, the garden of the owners of the Pottery* which displays much originality and then several of the type of sumptuous country house garden.
    All these gardens display the owners' interest in plants, and appreciation of the English garden tradition

    *The garden at Whichford Pottery is not normally open to the public - it is Jim and Dominique's private space and has some wonderful sculpture and quirky ideas, well worth a visit!
