The Cotswolds are home to some of the loveliest gardens in England. Nestled among rolling green hills and honey-stone houses you'll discover cottage gardens blooming with vivid flowers and abuzz with honey bees.

There are plenty of more formal, manicured gardens to explore, too. One of the best of these is the wonderful garden at Highgrove House, the country home of The Prince of Wales.

VISIT HIGHGROVE WITH GH

This very special garden is the highlight of Good Housekeeping's four-day tour of the Cotswolds with royal expert and TV star Jennie Bond.

You'll witness all the work Prince Charles has put into the garden to make it as beautiful as it is today. He's surrounded his picturesque country home with scented wisteria, honeysuckle, jasmine and thyme, and has planted an experimental wild-flower meadow - a haven for all sorts of wildlife.
