Snowdrops update

Update Sun 14th Feb - with the warm December and early January, our snowdrops are a good few weeks ahead of where we might normally expect them to be.  They are still looking lovely - we recommend you come this week to see them at their best.  To avoid our peak times, why not arrive early (we open at 10.30am) or come late (we close at 5pm)?

New fanciful feature

Our generous Friends organisation have funded a fabulous carving in the Snowdrop Grove, which was finished last month. From a monolithic beech tree stump arises this glorious creation!  Watch the whole thing being carved (in under three minutes!) via our timelapse camera.

New children's trail

Visit us this half term and be amongst the first to trial our FREE brand-new 2016 picture quiz, which features some of the stunning spots around our gorgeous garden.  Perfectly suited to bright 5-9 year olds, but we reckon any other big kids (dads?) will like it too.

Come and work here

We are looking for one final member of friendly part-time staff to join our cafe team.  Ideally you'll have some catering experience, be available on weekdays and enjoy working hard as part of our small team.  Visit our vacancies page to find out more.

Welcome to Painswick Rococo Garden

The country's sole surviving complete rococo garden

Painswick Rococo Garden was designed in the 1740s as a flamboyant pleasure garden for Benjamin Hyett to entertain his guests.  This was a time when gardens were fashionable theatrical sets, providing a stunning backdrop to decadent garden parties.  Instead of a flower garden, you will happen across a stunning vegetable garden, beautifully-framed views of the surrounding countryside and fanciful garden buildings.  You can lose yourself amongst the lofty trees of our leafy woodland walk and watch friends and family battle to find the centre of our unusual maze.  And afterwards, enjoy delicious homemade cakes or a light lunch in our cosy cafe.
