Grange Farm - Brize Norton

The front paddock has a huge walnut tree in the middle. Locals comment on the precision of the green stripes made by a trusty John Deere mower! The garden to the side of the house is bordered by flowers and shrubs and features some clematis and wisteria clad walls. This area is also used as a croquet lawn when the resident moles have not been too busy!  Step through an ivy clad doorway into the third and largest area of the garden which houses the vegetable garden, pond, childrenšs play area, a large patio seating area surrounded by box hedge, several fruit trees and the Grade II listed 14th Century circular dovecote.  Visitors are free to go inside the dovecote and try to count the hundreds of small holes for the hundreds of doves which would have lived there providing food when the house was a monastic farmhouse.  The last area of the garden is the triangular shaped "back field" which has been left to form a meadow of natural grasses in which paths have been cut with the lawnmower.  In short, Grange Farm garden is a large family garden with a very rural feel to it which has many seating areas in which visitors can relax and enjoy a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

 

 

 

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.
