Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

I have shown you some features of Kiftsgate Court Gardens but not of the house, yet!

So, here is the main building of Kiftsgate Court. It stands on a bluff between the main Cotswold edge and the combe which forms the dominant feature of the park. It was built between 1887 and 1891 in the C17 style. It has an irregular L-plan, arranged around the north and east sides of the main formal gardens.

You might enjoy seeing it far more clearly by clicking Kiftsgate Court .

Kiftsgate Court was built for Sydney Graves Hamilton of Mickleton Manor. It was purchased in 1917 by Mr and Mrs J B Muir as a base for hunting. Mrs Heather Muir began to expand and develop the gardens c 1920, much of the work being done in conjunction with Lawrence Johnston from nearby Hidcote Manor

Of course, it is the gardens that are open to the public, whilst only a small part of the house is for public use as a shop, ice-cream parlour or cafe.

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
