Kiftsgate Court Gardens is situated above the village of Mickleton in the county of Gloucestershire, England, in the far north of the county close to the county border with both Worcestershire and Warwickshire.

The gardens, famed for its roses, are the creation of three generations of women gardeners. Started by Heather Muir in the 1920s, continued by Diany Binny from 1950 and now looked after by Anne Chambers and her husband. Kiftsgate Court is now the home of the Chambers family.

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.

  • 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
