The Kiftsgate Hundred was the ancient area surrounding Chipping Campden. Today the 'Kiftsgate Hundred' stone, where the elders met to administer justice, stands in Weston Park Wood above Chipping Campden. Included in the Hundred was Mickleton, called Mycclantune, meaning 'big village'. It is a few hundred yards from Hidcote Manor Garden owned by the National Trust.
Kiftsgate Court Gardens reviews
We visited on an early Wednesday afternoon in mid September and were surprised at how busy it was. There is a smallish car park although that leads to a larger (I think) overflow car park. Entrance... more »
Unkempt. Untidy. A large area of Astroturf. At £9 per adult;overpriced. That's all I want to say but the Trip Advisor computer programme says I must write some more. more »
Went on a sunny August day. Breathtaking views. Flowers amazing. The gardens have a lot of Cotswold charm and character with walks and water features. Good cafe. Pot of tea is good value. Only downside is the toilets are before you go in and are not that great although has all the requirements of soap, toilet paper and towels. Very pretty place. Sunny and shaded gardens. Recommended
Beautiful gardens even in the rain! Very well stocked with gorgeous plants. Fabulous colours and variety of plants. Tasty soup and cake in cafe and very friendly staff...especially lady taking the money and loaning us umbrellas! Bought 2 plants to remind me of this wonderful garden. Lyn Couch
