Garden Tours, Afternoon Teas and Luncheons
“All in a Cotswold Garden”
Regular Garden Tours
Our 8 acres of Cotswold gardens are an all-important aspect of daily life at Lords of the Manor, especially now that we have completed our new Herb Garden – chef is regularly spotted here!
In response to demand we now offer a regular Garden Tour and Two Course Lunch through the Spring, Summer and Autumn months. This wonderful experience includes a detailed tour of our stunning gardens and herb gardens alongside a two course lunch and glass of wine. We’ll also send you on your way with some seeds and planting advice.
Our next tour, however, will be a very special one indeed, with a celebrity guest!
