This is a real gem, beautifully tended formal gardens in the grounds of an old house. There is also a "wild" part at the bottom of the main gardens. It is also worth visiting for the excellent cafe for lunch or afternoon tea. There is ample parking in a field across the road, the toilet facilities are adequate and there... More

An inspirational garden. Worth visiting regularly as it really does present a different face with each season.

Like a Shropshire Sissinghurst, this garden combines superb bone structure with real variety and fantastic planting. I have visited many times at different seasons of the year and it never disappoints. Formal and quite restrained planting near the house, complete with restful water canal, gradually becomes looser as you move further away, until you eventually find yourself in an of... More

I escorted a group of 22 Seniors around here as the second Garden of our day tour. They had had a first class experience at the first one, but as they walked into this garden - silence suddenly descended and they were literally rendered speechless! Even in September there were beautiful sights and smells in each different designed 'room'. Typically... More

I visited Wollerton quite a few years ago, and more than once, including their winter open day. I visit a lot of gardens - was a garden volunteer at Wisley for nearly half my life - and I can honestly say I regard this as the best of the lot. Other people have described the bare bones, but there is... More

This garden is outstanding for its size. Opening is limited (Fri and Sun only) but it is not difficult to get to - bus 64 / 164 Arriva Shrewsbury - Market Drayton - Hanley hourly and a half mile walk through the 'village' to the garden. I can only echo what others have said - lots of different 'rooms', plenty... More

This treasure of a garden is compact enough for most visitors walk round comfortably and to see the amazing display of plants in a succession of breathtaking vistas. And if that is not enough, the tea room is a very good place to enjoy a high quality salad or an indulgent cream tea. Good for all ages but superb for... More

Go here quite often, the gardens are beautiful. I always feel as if I should do more with my own much smaller garden after a visit here, so inspirational. Enjoy a cream tea (scone, cream, jam and fresh strawberries, yummy!) or lunch either in the café or outside. You have to park in the field opposite so may not be... More

Have visited many of Britain"s best known gardens over the years & was amazed to discover this absolute gem in the heart of rural Shropshire. A wonderful timber framed house dating back hundreds of years is surrounded by a truly spectacular garden which has been divided into a series of outdoor rooms,each leading on to another with borders full of...

This is a wonderful garden with fantastic planting that means it is full of colour. The garden is a series of different areas, each with great planting, water features and interesting seats, walls, gates and summer houses. The tea room is also very good with home cooked lunches and cakes. Well worth a visit.
