The gardens have a wonderfully elegant but relaxed feel (early William Kent which seems to have been changed very little) in a beautiful setting by the river. Charmingly informal and understated (you just turn up, place some money in a machine for a ticket and...More

Take a picnic and sit by the river in the sunshine before exploring the woodland and kitchen gardens. Doesn't get crowded and makes a nice afternoon's walking. Very interesting history. £6 per person to enter.

Had the pleasure of visiting the lovely village of Rousham on a sunny august day, Only wondered around the gardens, which are very well kept and very colourful. The house is also very stunning. Well worth a visit, look at the church as well.

Visited Rousham today. It was first recommended to us by a guide at Stourhead who said it was her favourite. I can see why. Tucked away not far from Woodstock, it is unspoilt and peaceful. Beautiful gardens, well maintained but not too fussy or manicured....More
