Visited Highnam Court to support the open day for the NSPCC. The house remains private but we spent an enjoyable couple of hours exploring the extensive gardens which have been sensitively restored. It must be one of Gloucestershire's treasures.

I doubt it. They only open a few times a year for charity events, mainly at weekends - it's worth doing searches online every few weeks to see if there's an open day soon. It's a beautiful garden, ideal for walkers and... More
