Bourton House from the formal knot garden
A view of Bourton House from the stunning knot garden. In the centre of the garden is a huge antique basket-weave design pond in raised Cotswold stone. The maze-like beds of the knot garden, precision-cut from box (Buxus sempervirens) are amazingly sharp and regular. At their corners are groups of pyramid topiaries.
