Hidcote National Trust

Hidcote National Trust

Hidcote is an Arts and Crafts garden in the north Cotswolds, close to Stratford-upon-Avon. They have a maze of narrow paved pathways which are great for the kids to explore and keen gardeners as they have a vast collection of plants.

In the winter months it is only open weekends but still worth exploring as it’s always lovely to see the changes of the season. It’s worth wearing sensible shoes for the garden as a lot of paths are cobbled.

They have an on site cafe which offers hot food, snacks, cakes and drinks.  You have to state your table number when ordering, so grab a table once you arrive.



From the car park you can walk into the chocolate-box Cotswold hamlet of Hidcote Bartrim. There are traditional thatched stone cottages which are now owned by the Trust and rented out.
