The picturesque village of Ashton under Hill is situated in the south of the county of Worcestershire, England, at the eastern end of Bredon Hill and overlooking the Vale of Evesham. Bredon Hill and Ashton are in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The northern Cotswold hills are close at hand and nearby towns include Evesham, Pershore, Broadway and Tewkesbury. Formerly part of the county of Gloucestershire, Ashton under Hill is now in the Wychavon district of Worcestershire.

Ashton under Hill is just west of the A46 between Evesham and Tewkesbury, about 5 miles south of Evesham and near to junction 9 of the M5 motorway. To find us with your Sat Nav please use the postcode WR11 7SW. More directions here or see a map here

2017 will be the 40th year of our annual Open Gardens weekend, which continues to grow in popularity and often now attracts well over a thousand visitors over the two days.

Thank you too, of course, to all of our garden owners without whom there would be no event, also to our stallholders and advertisers, and to all our helpers throughout the year and on the day.

Our next Open Gardens Weekend will be on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 June 2018.
