Kiftsgate Court Gardens

Kiftsgate Garden, near Chipping Campden, is one of the Cotswolds finest gardens. It is a remarkable garden created and developed by three generations of women from the same family. It is well known for the Kiftsgate Rose (Rosa filipes) a heavenly scented rambling rose. The garden was first created in 1920 when Heather Muir created colourful borders around the house. In 1954 her daughter Diana Binny started to change the layout creating the semicircular plunge pool. By 1981 her daughter Anne and her husband Johnny Chambers had taken over and made the Millennium Water Garden and introduced new colours into the borders.
