A family-run 4.5 acre garden with year-round interest. Goltho House and grounds were purchased in 1997 in a virtually derelict condition.

It took 18 months to make the house habitable. The garden was started in 1998, when it was a ploughed field. Goltho Gardens was dubbed “one of the great gardens of the future” – Sue Hoy, Lincolnshire Life. The garden boasts ponds and a long grass walk flanked by abundantly-planted borders, from which, a network of paths meander. The nut walk, David Austin rose garden and wildflower meadow are at their best in spring and early summer. A prairie border and an autumn garden provide late summer and autumnal interest, along with an impressive display of cyclamen. The potager provides the teashop with herbs and vegetables. Many of the plants are propagated on site and can be purchased in the nursery.
