Steeple Aston Gardens

Steeple Aston

Steeple Aston, often considered the most easterly of the Cotswold villages, is a beautiful stone built village with gardens that provide a huge range of interest. A stream meanders down the hill as the landscape changes from sand to clay. The 6 open gardens include small floriferous cottage gardens, large landscaped gardens, natural woodland areas, ponds and bog gardens, and themed borders.
