Highnam Court is a grade I listed country house in Highnam, Gloucestershire, England constructed in the 17th century during the Commonwealth period, after the original house was seriously damaged in the Civil War. The gardens are beautifully restored. The Highnam Estate was bought in 1838 by Thomas Gambier Parry, who was an accomplished artist, musician and art collector. He started to lay out his garden in 1840, and by 1874 it rivalled any in the UK.
In the last 20 years Roger Head has been the owner and lovingly restored to their former glory.
