over 2 years by Mrs. S.Pratt 5 / 5I would just like to say what a beautiful garden this is. It was a most enjoyable time my husband & I spent. Also I took some great photos. It was a really good programme on BBC 2 this evening on Hidcote. Thank you very much
over 3 years by Anonymous 3 / 5Was very disappointed. Albeit a dry summer, a hose could have been used occasionally, especially the white garden where plants were one removed from dying. People are paying to view a garden after all, not a house. It would also have been good, if the Trust spent a bit of money on plant signs. The giraffes dotted around looked ridiculous and out of place and the so called Rose Walk should be renamed Thistle Plant Walk. On a positive note the pigs were a nice touch though and the vegetable plot. The new pavillion was lovely and the garden in front of it looked fresh and watered. However the further you got from this area, the garden simply looked uncared for, most plants allowed to get far too leggy and weeds everywhere.
over 3 years by gardenboy 4 / 5delightful, with some weaknesses. A must see despite crowds. Red border and white room are luxurious, wilderness area at end of vista bucolic whilst rock garden needs considerable attention.
almost 4 years by Anonymous 1 / 5After many years we eventually went to Hidcote but found the whole experiece rather depressing. The planting schemes were weak, little attention had been made of weeding and the only wow factor for us was astonishment at the brainwashed pilgrims we had to navigate our way around to get back to the car park. People have different tastes but most can agree on good quality, unless they are too busy flattering the king on his new clothes!!
over 5 years by Bruce Rawlings 5 / 5I have been visiting Hidcote for over 3 years to make a video of this fantastic garden. The more you visit it the more you can appreciate Lawrence Johnstone's inspirational design and love of plants.

over 5 years by Pete 4 / 5Hidcote is one of those gardens my garden loving friends tell me is a masterpiece.
about 7 years by Adam Hodge 4 / 5I heartily respect Mr Martin's opinion about Hidcote, and his analysis of its style is most helpful.
about 7 years by John Martin 5 / 5Nobody should be deterred from visiting Hidcote by the extraordinary review by Mr.Hodge. This is one of the finest gardens in England, the more so because it is cared for by the National Trust in a manner Major Lawrence Johnson would have approved. The style is an elaboration of the English Cottage Garden which is small scale, but the central axis allows a dramatic transition from the tightly planted 'rooms' to a broad vista over farmland to the Vale of Evesham. Wonderful.
about 7 years by Adam Hodge 4 / 5I'm not quite sure why this place didnt agree with me..the design is, without doubt, busy with lots of 'rooms', each with its own character and lovely plantings , but I couldnt wait to get out. It was all so contained and..intense...no sense of space or openness
over 7 years by Anonymous 5 / 5Wonderful!
