Designed in the 1740’s Painswick’s Rococo Gardens is a charming 6-acre garden laid out in a hidden valley around Painswick House. It was abandoned to woodland in the 1950s and has been re-designed by Lord and Lady Dickinson with a magnificent Yew Topiary, old roses and box parterres. The restoration which is nearing completion comprises a series of follies, ponds, and herbaceous borders. A privet maze was planted in 1998. The garden is famous for a fantastic display of snowdrops in late January and February. The gardens are open during these difficult times on Friday to Sunday 10 am to 3 pm. but must book tickets in advance for a timed entry.
