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.

I love visiting Goltho Gardens. It's 4.5 acres provideds a tranquil haven off the main road. There is plenty of colour and different plants throughout the seasons of the year. My last visit was for the spendid show of daffodils and other Spring fowers. There is an admission fee of £5 A very good value season ticket is available too, so I treated myself to one. The tea room is also well worth a visit, where there is always a warm welcome and lovely food.

Went on a grey day in October. Slightly perturbed to find they were charging £5 a head for yhe privilege of walking round their gardens.

Stayed at the B&B. Weather was great and the garden, despite it being so late in the summer, was impressive. Debbie looked after us very well, ace breakfast and brilliantly comfy four poster bed. The tea rooms serve a really good selection of food and the service was efficient and friendly.

So whether you're looking for a stop-off for an hour or two or somewhere as a base for a couple of days' exploration around the Wolds this place would be hard to beat.

Always a delight to re-visit. You can always find an unusual plant to buy, it did look a bit tired this time around, probably due to the hot weather recently.

There are three elements to this attraction, the gardens, the plant nursery, and the tea rooms. Only the gardens have an entrance fee (£5) but it is well worth it. They consist of 4.5 acres of delight including large herbaceous borders, a wild flower meadow, a nut wood walk, a pond, a vegetable garden, alpines and probably more. All the plants work in easy harmony and seem made to go next to each other. That is a tremendous skill and I think the garden is one of the most delightful I have ever seen. I pushed my mother-in-law in her wheelchair and apart from a small amount of gravel (go backwards) it was easy to get around, both on the grass and the chippings paths.
The nursery is small but has a very interesting set of plants for sale. It also sports a large gravel garden. The lady in charge certainly knows a lot about plants. She could even tell us the names of some plants we had seen in the gardens from our vague descriptions! We bought two plants which are now looking good in our own garden.
The tea room was also very pleasant. We had tea and Lincolnshire plumb loaf.
We did not allow ourselves long enough to relax in this place.
We will return for a longer visit. They are open Wednesdays to Sundays & Bank Holidays:10am - 4pm
