Rookery Farm - Brize Norton

Walking up the drive, on your right is the secluded (and neglected) front garden. Past the
yew tree on the left is the front paddock with a 16th Century bothy and Giant Sequoia, grown
from a seed in a cone picked up under the General Sherman tree in 1996. Behind the beech
hedge ahead is the wood and tennis court. Through the stable yard on the right is the back
garden with herbaceous borders, and beyond that the rear paddock with fruit trees and
Shetland ponies (aka lawn mowers with attitude).






Brize Norton is a Domesday Village in the Cotswolds not far from Burford and Bampton (of Downton Abbey fame).

We have a Norman Church with many interesting features including our crusader knight and  links with RAF Brize Norton. There is a flower festival in the church on the day we open our gardens.

One of our Open Gardens has a listed Dove Cote. 

We offer a pleasant afternoon for visitors with tea and cakes provided by the WI and Grange Farm.   There are also two hostelries.

Local attractions include the recently opened Crocodile World.
