Wanted to see the gardens for sometime and today had a lovely visit , peaceful tranquil atmosphere despite being by a busy road. Lovely varied planting, ponds, nut walk, meadow garden , roses and grassy walks. So worth a visit.

Goltho Gardens cancelled our group visit with no reason or excuse given, only that "they could not now accommodate us that day". This despite a booking made months previously.

Hi I am sorry for your disappointment unfortunately we were unable to accommodate you on that date and informed you back in March. As we did not receive a booking form to confirm any other date we assumed you had decided against this year
