A small bridge over a stream in the gardenHidcote Manor Garden is one of England's great Arts and Craft gardens with a collection of rare trees and shrubs. The garden is divided into various "rooms" by hedges and walls. Some of these tend to be more formal while others have an informal character. I visited in April 2002, so the garden had just started with the spring colours. You will also find several nice benches inviting you to sit down for a rest, just letting you enjoy the A lovely tree in full bloom
views and the colours. The garden was created by Major Lawrence Johnston from 1907 to 1948, when he presented it to the National Trust (don't forget your membership card if you are a member). Hidcote Manor Garden is near the village of Mickelton, signposted from the road between Stratford-upon-Avon and Broadway.
