Rococo Gardens at Painswick

Last weekend Honey and I, along with my youngest son,  Archie took a trip to the beautiful Rococo Gardens.  This was our first time visiting after seeing so many beautiful photos on Instagram we knew we had to take a look for ourselves. 

Rococo Gardens is situated in the village of Painswick Gloucestershire, a short drive for us but a wonderful trip out for those looking to explore The Cotswolds. 

The Rococo period was an artistic movement that started off in France during the 18th Century and moved throughout Europe to England.  Gardens became theatrical and flamboyant with columns, ornamental decorations and the use of pastel colours. 

What is special about Rococo Gardens is that it is the only surviving garden from the Rococo period open to the public, and highly worth the visit! 

With six acres of grounds to explore there is something for everyone,  dogs are extremely welcome as long as they are well behaved and kept on leads. If you feel peckish then there is a cafe which serves delicious hot and cold food along with the yummiest selection of cakes! 

For those that love their photography, this is a perfect place to visit. I recently bought a DSLR and since then I have been trying to practise and improve my photography skills. By visiting places like The Rococo Gardens has been extremely valuable to my learning and the backdrops for taking photos of Honey and the family have been just beautiful. 

If you are visiting to take photos, especially with your dogs go as early as you can on the weekends or even during the week as when we visited it was very busy.  

Honey loved every minute of our day out with her nose firmly on the ground it with a sensory overload. I can tell you she was one knackered pup by the end of the day and snored her way straight into the morning!

Whilst we were there we took the opportunity to take a few photos of Honey for our Instagram as you do! We are hoping to go back closer to summer to take more photos as I can't wait to see all the flowers out in bloom!
