A private visit to the garden of Wortley House, Wooton under Edge, Gloucester. GL12 7QP
This diverse garden of over 20 acres has been created during the last 30 years by the current owners including walled garden, pleached lime avenues, nut walk, potager, ponds, Italian garden, shrubberies and wild flower meadows. Strategically placed follies, urns and statues enhance extraordinary vistas throughout, and the garden filled with plants, arbours, roses through trees and up walls, and herbaceous borders. A stream runs through the garden and is crossed to visit the summerhouse and a smaller copy of the Gothic Folly at Painshill. The stunning surrounding countryside is incorporated into the garden with views up the steep valley that are such a feature in this part of Gloucestershire.
We will be guided around this extensive garden by the owners followed by tea and cakes.
Tickets are priced at £20 to include a talk, tour, tea and cakes with proceeds going to The National Garden Scheme.
Note:- This visit is obviously subject to any Covid19 government restrictions applicable at the time, and will be enabled using social distancing and self-drive.
We have looked into providing transport for these visits but the costs and complexity of the Avon area prevent us from achieving an affordable outcome. Arrangements for a car share scheme for this visit can be made through Peter Hills [details below] and every effort will be made to couple up attendees where requested.
