The Rose Labyrinth is one of several themed gardens within the historic Walled Garden.

 

Boasting over 200 different varieties of roses - shrub, climbing and rambling roses including Damasks, Albas, Teas and Noisettes, Floribundas and many old fashioned English Roses -  the breathtaking array of styles and scents make this rose garden something very special.

The garden features a statue of Fair Rosamund, lover of King Henry II, who was allegedly poisoned in the labyrinth at Woodstock by the jealous Queen Eleanor. Rosamund is surrounded by several roses called Rosa Mundi.

The Rose Labyrinth was designed by Christina Williams as a gift to her mother, Clare McLaren-Throckmorton, the present owner of Coughton Court in 1996. This garden was presented with the presitgious Award of Garden Excellence by the World Federation of Rose Societies.
