The Garden Landscape Guide

Painswick Rococo Garden

During the nineteenth century, the original eighteenth century design was lost as much of the garden was converted to grow fruit and vegetables. Using a painting, by Thomas Robins in 1748, the garden is being fully restored to its eighteenth century character. Its main features are rococco buildings, woodland walks and well-planned vistas. In spring, the snowdrops are dramatic.


This garden is a pleasure ground created in the decadent and fun loving early 18th century. Follies nestle in a hidden valley surrounded by magnificent Cotswolds views. A large Kitchen Garden produced many crops that are used in the garden's own restaurant.

    May be the wrong time of the year, but found the gardens a bit disappointing and somewhat uncared for.
    Felt that the cafe/restaurant was a bit of a rip-off.

    Wonderful vista's ! Intriguing veg. garden, beautifully maintained. Some lovely site lines, and yet one anticipates more to admire. Perhaps as more investment goes into furnishing the landscape with a richer pallette of plants and colour it will improve.
    Pleasant tearooms, good cake !!
