Having missed out on visiting gardens for the last 18 months or so we are hoping that this weekend break will be a chance to see other peoples gardens again. If like most, hopefully with all the spare time we have had they should be looking great.
Saturday We plan on visiting the historic village of Prestbury (just outside Cheltenham) for their Open Gardens. This is a bi-annual event that the village holds with approx 15 gardens open.
After we go to Hilton Doubletree Swindon for the night.
Sunday Today we have two garden visits, weather permitting. In the morning we visit Abbey Gardens at Malmesbury. A well known 5 acre garden. A chance to get lunch here before we head off to Badminton Estate. The private gardens of the historic Badminton House, the home of the Duke and Duchess of Beaufort are open this afternoon. From the formal beds on the east side of the house, to the South Garden with its water squares, hedges, beds and borders. The Walled Garden, a short stroll from the house through the park, is home to the kitchen garden.
