Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Had a lovely stop for afternoon tea at Goltho Gardens on the way back from a day out. Great choice of drinks and food - freshly baked scones. And nice to see options such as decaff tea available, and a delicious mint tea with mint picked straight from the garden.

A wonderful garden with an excellent tea room. A welcoming friendly family garden. Everyone had time to talk. Lots of interesting vistas. Many interesting and photogenic features and (obviously!) plants shrubs and trees. We will return to see it again in autumn, when it will be in a different coloured outfit. We enjoyed a great hot chocolate between April showers.

A lovely garden with plenty of seating for the less able among us. You will always be made welcome and there is plenty of helpful advice on plants and planting available. The nursery contains many unusual plants grown on the premises. Well worth a visit.

I first visited Goltho House 6-7 years ago when it opened as part of the NGS yellow book scheme. They still open for the NGS but the whole place has come in in leaps and bounds,as a more commercial venture.
A popular cafe, interesting gardens and a thriving nursery, with plenty of advice about the plants you have chosen.

Very attractive gardens for a walk round, although as the gardens run parallel to the main road, the noise of the traffic alongside can be a little off-putting. Very good quality plants for sale, too. The food appears home-made and is delicious, although the new purpose-built cafe block is not a patch on the owners' own conservatory, which was wonderful. Good for a stop-off on a Sunday.
