COTSWOLD GARDENS tours one of Britain's best loved landscapes and explores, from a fresh perspective, some of its most spectacular gardens.
It is not by chance that so many admirable gardens have sprung up in so concentrated an area. The rolling hills, steep escarpments and wooded coombs of the Cotswolds are blessed with a temperate climate and a tradition of prosperity that has allowed its inhabitants to build splendid manors and fine houses out of the local honey-coloured limestone. To complement such dwellings magnificent gardens were constructed, designed by famous figures such as Capability Brown, William Kent and Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe.
