The garden is full of surprises with follies, fish ponds and a plunge pool.

Meander through the woods and discover the Hermitage, Gothic Alcove and Pigeon House.

The diamond-shaped kitchen garden has a white Gothic Exedra at the far end. Close by is the Doric Seat and the Maze which was planted to celebrate 250 years of Painswick.

The a-symmetrical Red House is on the other side of the Exedra and is a great example of a Rococo garden feature.

Don’t miss the snowdrops in January/February.

Painswick is now cared for by the Painswick Rococo Garden Trust.
