This book is exactly what I was looking for to give a friend who spends time in the Cotswolds every year and loves to visit the gardens in the area. It hits the highlights of the gardens and gives a sense of what each has to offer.

I live at the southern end of the Cotswolds and when I saw this book I thought it would be a handy guide to help me learn about many of the gardens within an hour's drive from me and to discover many new ones in the area.

Whilst I have found lots of new gardens and the pictures are most enticing, I'm afraid there isn't actually very much information about each of them. There's just 2-4 pages devoted to a garden with about half of this space taken up with the pictures (50 gardens are described in a total of 160 pages). This leaves a few paragraphs to describe the garden, it's history, development etc. This simply isn't enough for the quality of gardens on offer and is less than the information conveyed in the average tourist leaflet.

I shall be researching further via each garden's website (full details in the book) before setting out to explore these gardens.

Tony Russell has made a selection of the finest gardens to visit in the lovely Cotswold's. The descriptions of the gardens are short, but to the point. The best feature of this book are the many beautiful photographs. A list of all gardens with address, telephone and website information is also given, so based on your preferences you can research and organize well in advance a tour along your own favorite Cotswold's gardens.

A lovely book - so many gardens, Blenheim, Dyrham Park and on and on. Written by an expert and beautifully presented. I will be giving this book as a gift to all my friends who love the Cotswolds.
