About the garden

Set across 10 acres of wildlife-rich woodlands the Cotswold Sculpture Park is a large and diverse collection of contemporary art with everything from scrap metal work to bronzes. Some works, such as the Morris Minor mounted atop a vast spike by the entrance are monumental in scale, and many of the pieces are available to buy.

The grounds are considered part of the artwork here, with changing foliage providing a beautiful backdrop and the edges of some sculptures beginning to fade into the landscape. The owners are devoted to wildlife, with a thistle field, wildflower garden, woodland glades and a pond area, so it’s worth bringing along a pair of binoculars to catch the bird life. Visitors will also be pleased to discover that a range of hot and cold refreshments are available, and toilets can be found at the back of the site.

A fantastic place to visit for all ages, lots of sculptures to see and make you think. There is a lovely little cafe at the entrance, serving soup, panini and cakes, all vegetarian friendly. The park itself is well laid out with a variety of plants to see, places to sit and think and just have a gentle stroll. (Note, no dogs allowed). Most of the exhibits are for sale (if you have that kind of budget 💰💰💰), they give you a list of the various sculptures so you know what they are called and how much they are. We spent around two plus hours walking around.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time walking around. The sculptures were fascinating and the sun shining on the stainless steel and glass ones really enhanced them. Though one of our favourites was made of iron resin 'Orion' No. 11. A brilliant way to spend a few hours. All followed by a piece of cake and a cup of tea .

Absolutely wonderful time walking through the grounds discovering all the pieces on display. We all really enjoyed the experience. If you are in the area and you like sculpture art, you should visit!

Some beautiful and thought provoking sculptures, set in 10 acres of unspoilt woodland. Go when it's quiet if you can. Cafe is nice but a little limited if you are not vegetarian.

Great place to stop for an hour or two as we travelled further north. Could have used a sign from car park saying 'this way' as it wasn't clear and also on ticket office (which appears to be back end of old bus!). Toilets limited but adequate and clean. Lots and lots of sculptures to see - more than 150 and not a long walk to see them all. Particularly liked the rusty old figures of scrap metal that were not for sale. A small but intriguing exhibition next to cafe to finish off with. Cafe was very pleasant and top notch choc fudge brownie.
