National Rambling Roses Open Garden

Event ended

Editor's Choice

See and sniff 150 varieties of rambler roses from The National Collection, and enjoy a homemade British tea, at Moor Wood in Woodmancote this summer.

Continuing its summer schedule of fundraising open garden events, Cheltenham medical charity Cobalt will be opening the renowned Moor Wood in Woodmancote to the public, on Sunday 22 June 2014.

The two-acre country garden is home to more than 150 varieties of rambler roses from The National Collection, as well as many other varieties, promising an array of sweet-smelling scents and stunning photo opportunities for all who attend.

The National Collection was started here in 1983 to collect all the known varieties of each species, before they were lost to gardens and gardeners.

Owners Henry and Susie offered to collect the rambler varieties, as they seemed a perfect fit with the wild and rather romantic effect the couple wanted to create in the garden.

There’s more to Moor Wood than just its roses, though, and visitors can also soak up sights of its wildflower meadow, walled garden, sweeping lawn and orchard, not to mention enjoy a quintessential British tea to boot.
