Reasons for trip

We went to The Courts Garden, a National Trust garden, for a few hours whilst driving through Wiltshire. Parking is on the opposite side of the road to the garden but this is well sign posted and we had no problems parking on a sunny Sunday morning in July.

It was a relatively small but delightful garden which was laid out in a series of “rooms” separated by yew hedges. There are several areas to visit including a pool, perennial borders and an orchard. There is also a conservatory which would have been a pleasant sitting spot in cooler weather. The house is not open – this is a garden only visit.

The small restaurant is not run by the National Trust – as we realised when we found it was “waitress service” than “self service”. We had two excellent salads and preferred them to the usual National Trust food. Overall a really pleasant visit.
