Sezincote House and Garden

This is an extraordinary house – Indian in style, yet built of Cotswold stone and set among the Cotswold hills. It was built c1805 for the Cockerell family (a descendant of diarist Samuel Pepys’s nephew).

John Betjeman, who visited as a student, mentions Sezincote in his poem ‘Summoned by Bells’: “Down the drive, Under the early yellow leaves of oaks… the bridge, the waterfall, the Temple Pool and there they burst on us, the onion domes.”
