Upton Wold Garden

Formal gardens and a Walnut arboretum in the Cotswolds.

About the garden

When the owners of Upton Wold took over the site in the 1970s, there were only a few ancient yews, a grand holly tree and some apples. Over the past decades, they have turned this site, with its beautiful Cotswold stone buildings into the National Collection of Walnut and Wingnut trees, with a series of garden ‘rooms’ on a site noted for its beautiful annual display of Snowdrops.

A landscape of shrubs and trees, with colourful herbaceous borders in the spring and summer, Upton Wold is made up of a series of formal gardens, complete with its own labyrinth, situated in the Walnut arboretum, which leads to the abandoned medieval village of Upton. There is an interesting range of plants on display here, as the owners have a particular fascination for cultivating unusual varieties.

There is space for nature here, too, with a wildflower meadow, a pond garden, and an old orchard which leads on to the Hidden Garden, with many stunning Magnolias. Refreshments, including light summer lunches and delicious cream teas can be made available for group visits of six or more people, by prior arrangement, but picnics are also welcome (by arrangement).
