Paulmead, Gloucestershire: the charm of The Cotswolds
Nestled in The Cotswolds, Paulmead is a one-acre garden that reflects the character and charm of its famous surroundings. In June, the herbaceous borders topple with summer blooms, birdsong fills the air and a soft flow of water gently makes its way down the stream.
A closer look
Garden Owners, Phillip and Judy moved to Paulmead in 1984. The garden they inherited was much smaller, and over the years they have set about expanding its footprint to create the rooms established today. Calming spaces, such as the pond area masterfully flow into the more practical, like the vegetable patch. The herbaceous borders offer a delicate formality whilst the treehouse brings a playfulness to the garden.
Built from the salvaged wood of an old oak tree, the treehouse was built in 2004 by the Garden Owner’s son and a family friend. Propped against a maturing oak, some 15 years later the treehouse sits seamlessly within its setting. Climbing up the narrow steps, the view opens up and offers a unique and captivating perspective of the garden.
Paulmead opens with the Bisley Gardens group. To find out more, click here.
