Once a Georgian house set in 7 acres or ornamental gardens, Burford House & Gardens is now home to Burford House Garden Store, a Café-Bar and Burford House Shopping Emporium. There is also a salvage shop in the old coach house selling some interesting items from bygone times. Well worth a visit for adults and children alike with a children's outdoor play area, ornamental duck pond and a magnificent wisteria covering the whole of the rear of the house. To the rear of the house there are beautiful ornamental gardens for you to explore which were originally the home of the National Clematis Collection. The gardens were laid out in their current form by the late John Treasure in the 1950's and you search hard enough, you can find the stone remains of the earlier Norman Castle.

At one point in the garden, where the Ledych Brook meets the River Teme is the spot where the three counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire meet. The gardens are now tended to by a group of volunteers, 'The Garden Angels', who are on a mission to restore the gardens to their former glory!

Originally part of the estate, Burford Church can be found next door to Burford House and is itself worth seeing, particularly for a fascinating triptych (three boarded painting) beside the altar.
