Top 100 Attractions Review

On the day I visited and due to time restraints and a very busy diary, I only had time to visit the Four Seasons Walled Garden and experience the frescoes that adorn the tearoom walls, accompanied of course by tea and scones, I always make time for tea and scones! Lord Faringdon himself has really outdone some of the greats with the creation of the Walled garden and in doing so, has set the bar to other country homes that have a Walled Garden to what can be achieved with imagination and a small amount of financial resources, true magic can happen. It has to be said that even though the gardens and Buscot Park are only open to the public from the end of March through to the end of September, Buscot truly is a place for all seasons and whether your a keen gardener, or a novice of gardening sorts, a visit to this hidden gem will stay long in the memory for many years to come.

Buscot Park

Attraction in Oxfordshire

Buscot Park

During my time writing this book I have visited a multitude of gardens that have either excited me, inspired me or quite simply put, transported me to another place in time, none of which managed have all three at once, until I visited the timeless gardens of Buscot Park and it is very hard in just a short amount of words to explain how Buscot achieved this, but I will nevertheless try. To enjoy the gardens here at Buscot Park, you need to know something of its history, otherwise they may appear at first, quite puzzling. Take for instance the Water Garden designed by the utterly brilliant Harold Peto who was himself way ahead of his time and despite the many gardens he brought to life, Buscot has to be one of his crowning glories. Harold Peto is just one of the many characters involved in the creation of Buscot and as you make your way around this fascinating place, you’ll learn more about them all.
