Coughton Court Rose Garden

The beautiful Rose Garden at Coughton Court has 200 varieties of roses. The best time to visit is in the last week of June or first week in July.

The centrepiece of the rose garden is a statue of Rosamund, lover of King Henry II. She is surrounded by a bed of rose 'Rosa Mundi'. This rose is named after her.

In addition to the rose garden, there is also a beautiful lake, with a little gazebo on the far side, which you can see right in the distance on this photograph:
