Wyndcliffe Court Gardens are Grade II listed and designed in the Arts and Crafts style. Situated along the Wye Valley between Chepstow and Tintern, they are beautiful formal gardens with views to the south and east. Open every weekend, they are showcasing contemporary sculptures by local and well-known British artists. Open from 2nd May - 28th September 2014 three sculpture shows will run consecutively, each collection featuring hundreds of sculptures to suit all tastes in a wide variety of mediums, sizes and styles situated throughout the garden and offering the opportunity to view and purchase beautiful sculpture with an outstanding backdrop.
We are now accepting applications for our 2014 sculpture shows, and the website will be updated with news regularly. Our Sculpture Shows page lists all of the exhibiting artists in each of our past shows with photographs of many of the pieces exhibited. Our last show of 2013 launched on Friday 16th August; the Autumn Elegance and Form Sculpture Show 2013. It ran until Sunday 29th September and all of the information about it can be found on the Autumn Show 2013 page. Our Facebook and Twitter pages are regularly updated with news and events including photographs of the gardens at different times and cakes available in our tea room. Our Blog also features updates on what flowers there are to see in the gardens, as there are changes happening every day.
For more information on the history of Wyndcliffe Court and its gardens please see the Wyndcliffe Court page. The gardens at Wyndcliffe Court were designed by H. Avray Tipping, friend of Gertrude Jekyll and Editor of Country Life magazine. Completed in 1922, they are probably the best example of their type in Wales. Designed in a series of formal spaces or "rooms" they feature sculpted topiary, a sunken garden, a summerhouse, walled gardens, fountains, lily ponds and a bowling lawn leading on to wooded walks. They are worth a visit in their own right, but also make a wonderful setting for our garden sculpture shows “Elegance and Form”.
Wyndcliffe Court Gardens are 5 minutes from Chepstow and Tintern Abbey, nestled in the hills above the Wye Valley to the north of the village of St. Arvans. Situated on a high bluff, the house and gardens offer views over the Severn, the coastal plain and the Bristol Channel. 500 meters from part of the Wye Valley Walk, with stunning views, they are ideally located. 20 minutes from Newport, 30 minutes from Bristol and Cardiff, 40 from Gloucester and around 2 hours from London, with excellent public transport links.
