A family-run, 4.5 acre garden with year-round interest in colour and texture. Goltho Gardens has been dubbed “one of the great gardens of the future”. (Sue Hoy, Lincolnshire Life.)The garden boasts a long grass walk flanked by abundantly-planted borders, from which a network of paths meander. The nut walk, delightful pæony and rose gardens and stunning wildflower meadow are at their best in spring and early summer. A prairie border and gravel garden provide late summer and autumnal interest. The potager’s geometric planting provides the teashop with delicious herbs and vegetables.Many of the plants are propagated on site and can be purchased in the nursery. The teashop serves local food, home-cooked.

I have passed these gardens many times over the years but never called. I was so surprised just how beautiful the gardens are, so very well designed - quite a lot to see and very peaceful. The tea rooms were good and staff very helpful.

Wonderful gardens to wander around with a wide variety of plants. Good selection of plants for sale and an excellent tearoom with a lovely choice of food. I recommend the Meat Platter.

We went on a Sunday afternoon under a brilliant blue sky but with a biting cold wind. The gardens have a decent hedge all round which gives shelter so it was rather warm walking round. There is a formal long avenue with shrubs and perennials...More
