Miserden wins Garden of the Year Award 2018

A picture-perfect attraction in the heart of the Cotswolds, Miserden has been crowned winner of the Historic Houses Garden of the Year Award.

Cotswold attraction, Miserden, is celebrating after winning the Historic Houses Garden of the Year Award 2018, sponsored by Christie’s.

The prestigious national award has been presented annually since 1984; dedicated to recognising the country’s most beautiful historic gardens, the winner is the garden that receives the highest number of votes from Historic Houses members.

Boasting spectacular views, The Garden at Miserden was designed in the 17th century, featuring extensive yew hedges, an ancient mulberry tree, impressive herbaceous borders and plenty of other stunning sights.

Speaking about the exciting news, Miserden’s owner, Nicholas Wills, said: ‘It is a real honour to be awarded the Garden of the Year 2018. We are a small dedicated team, and we are delighted that our efforts have paid off.

‘We have worked hard to create not only a truly beautiful garden that can be admired by horticulturalists, but also a tranquil space where people can come to reflect while enjoying views across the valley.’

Historic Houses’ director general, Ben Cowell, said: ‘Miserden is very much a family home, embedded in the community and always seeking new and innovative ways to keep this important piece of history alive for generations to come.

‘We are delighted to name Miserden as our Garden of the Year, the hard work undertaken on site is very much evident and the gardens are a haven waiting to be explored.’
