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.

Over 1000 Visitors!
Our 40th Anniversary Open Gardens event was a great success, with over 1000 visitors to our village gardens. If you were one of our guests, thank you for your support, it is very much appreciated. 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. More news and pictures of this year's Open Gardens will follow shortly.
Our next Open Gardens Weekend will be on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 June 2018.
It's not too late to enter our Photographic Competition - the closing date is Friday 23 June. We're looking for original images from this year's event and a prize of a £25 garden gift voucher, two free tickets to Open Gardens 2018 and two complimentary cream teas are offered for the winning entry. More details available here
The photographic competition is open to everyone, so perhaps your picture could appear on our website and on next year's posters! You can see the picture of a bee on a cornflower taken by Mark Alington, last year's winner, on the right of this page. Jeremy King's image of some International Visitors and Bob Harding's Swimming Pond picture are also here.
