Kiftsgate Court is a country estate in the village of Kiftsgate, near Wotton-under-Edge in Gloucestershire, England. It was built by the architect James Wyatt for John Selwyn between 1787 and 1789. The estate is now owned by the National Trust. The gardens are open to the public from April until October, and include a walled garden with an orchard and kitchen garden as well as woodland walks.
The Kiftsgate Court Gardens was first planted by Heather Muir in the 1920s, who passed it on to Diany Binny in 1950. The garden is now looked after by Anne Chambers and her husband. The gardens are a delight for all the senses. They have many different things and scents to experience, so it’s always an enjoyable leisurely walk around the space. The beautiful colours and harmonious colour schemes of the plants from the upper gardens contrast with the plants in lower gardens, which are more inspired by atmospheres of warmer countries. The latest addition to the garden is a contemporary water garden, that is peaceful and tranquil and provides great contrast to the rest of the flower garden.
