# 262 Weekend outing: Hidcote & Chipping Campden

If you love gardens, you'll like Hidcote in Gloucestershire.  This must've been our 3rd visit and everytime there's something new to see, this time around we were pleasantly surprised because the National Trust has opened 2 of the rooms in the house.

The BBC has produced a programme on Hidcote called Hidcote: A garden for all seasons which I think you can still watch on the BBC iPlayer.

After leaving Hidcote we decided to stop in Chipping Campden, a nearby Costwold market town. This is a very pretty town and well worth a visit.

Tired from so much walking we headed home where we enjoyed some lovely homemade pancakes with strawberry jam and a nice cup of tea.

You can see more photos taken at Hidcote on my Flickr account here.



  1. Lovely photos. We've not visited Hidcote - another place to go on the list of places to see!

  2. we have not been to Hidcote for ages, and would love to have a peek inside the house.

  3. Hidcote looks beautiful. I think I'll have to check out the BBC programme -I love anything to do with stately homes and gardens :)

  4. Hi Paula,
    This is one garden I have always wanted to visit. Your photos of all the flowers are lovely especially the water lily. I shall have to look on iPlayer too.
