Burford House and Gardens online: information and bookings

Uniquely situated where three counties meet, the 7 acres of lawn and stunning borders of Burford House Gardens sweep along the banks of the picturesque River Teme. Originally designed by the late John Treasure in 1952 around an early Georgian house the gardens contain the National Clematis Collection. Today around 500 varieties of clematis are on display in the gardens flowering from spring through to early autumn, all cleverly interwoven amongst a wide variety of other traditional and unusual plants. During the summer there may be as many as 80 clematis in flower in the gardens at any one time, but some of these you might have to look a little hard to find, as they entwine with other plants or trail along the ground.

There are some 2000 other varieties of plants, including one of the garden's great wonders, the giant Wisteria macrobotrys 'Burford', which in May cascades spectacularly down the back of the house. Planted originally in 1960, it fills the air with divine perfume, and the racemes hang sometimes two feet in length.

A Georgian turfed bridge spans the river and takes you to an area of wildflowers and meadow, offering contrast to the intensively nurtured gardens around the house. The Burford Garden Company are now responsible for the gardens and strive to uphold the traditions set by John Treasure in this dynamic garden.

New in 2005 - Clematis and Rose Garden.
