To enjoy Buscot Park to the full, time should be taken to explore the extensive pleasure gardens that surround the late eighteenth-century house.  To the west of the house, the mellow red-brick walls of the original kitchen garden now shelter the Four Seasons garden, bright with the blooms of spring bulbs, flowering trees and drifts of multi-coloured day lilies, according to the time of year.  To the east, woodland walks lead to one of Britain’s finest water gardens, an unusual marriage of Italianate formality with an English parkland landscape.


From the south front of the house, the carriage drive sweeps away to the south east, down through mature woodland.  From the north front of the house, the views take in the Little Lake and the Thames plain beyond.  From neither point is any clue given of the splendid water garden that lies to the east of the house, reached by following the steps from the north terrace.
