Hidcote Manor Garden
Hidcote Manor Garden is a Gloucestershire landscape garden near Chipping Norton and is owned by the National Trust.
Hidcote Manor gardens cover 10.5 acres. Hedges mainly composed of holly, beech, and yew are used to define a series of garden areas planted with uniquely different species. At the edges of the garden are carefully planned vistas looking out over the Vale of Evesham. The focal point of the garden is the gazebo, at the intersection of axes running north-south and east-west.
The garden takes the form of a series of outdoor "rooms" of various characters and themes created by the creative use of box hedges, hornbeam and yew and stone walls. These rooms, such as the 'White Garden' and 'Fuchsia Garden' are linked together, and some by imaginative vistas and furnished with topiaries. Some have ponds and fountains, and all are planted with flowers in bedding schemes. They surround the 17th century manor house, and there are numerous outhouses and a kitchen garden.
