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 from Easter to September, they are showcasing contemporary sculptures by local and well-known British artists. Two 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.
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. For directions or to get in touch, please see our Contact & Directions page, and for opening times and all other information see our Visiting Us page.
