Snowdrops update

16th January - our famous snowdrops are coming up nicely, thanks to the usual mix of winter weather.  There is a small number of early ones blooming, but we reckon the main display has a few weeks to go.  Check back for further updates... and why not plan your visit around one of our snowdrops talks?  They're daily at 12noon, from 23 January.


We're on the lookout for part time catering staff to help us through our busy January and February.  If you're friendly, enjoy working in a busy environment and have some catering experience, please email us your CV and a covering letter.

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.
