About the garden

Owned by
John Cushing

Goldstone Hall Gardens are mature, immaculate and intriguingly designed so that each visit is an individual tour of exploration. Set in five-acre grounds overlooking tree-strewn North Shropshire countryside in the lee of Goldstone Hill – known as the ‘Golden Garden Triangle’ – there is also Georgian Manor House with restaurant and 12 comfortable bedrooms.

Visitors can enjoy one of the UK’s most beautiful and productive Hotel Kitchen Gardens with unique herbal walkway, sheltered by copper beech hedge planting, and boasting more than 100 varieties of herbs, cultivars of fruits such as espalier trained apples and pears, vegetables and spices are trialled for their suitability to the Goldstone climate.

The gardens have been landscaped and cultivated around the great vistas and designed sensitively, to encourage biodiversity suitable to the distinctive ‘Goldstone series’ soil. The Goldstone haven includes a diverse and wide variety of flowering plants and trees which have been chosen to compliment the terroir as well as their individual qualities such as fragrance, colour and stature.

Visitors can enjoy a Walled Garden with impressive doubled tiered herbaceous borders that include plants such as Actinidia kolomikta, Epilobium angustifolium var. album, Phormium tenax, sedums, alliums, clematis and a bushy line of ballerina roses. There is also a Rose Terrace over-looking the Walled Garden with a mix of varieties that continue to flower from May to November including Rosa 'Rhapsody in Blue', Rosa 'Tickled Pink', Rosa ‘Iceberg’ and Rosa ‘Silver Wedding’.

The garden has also been designed for relaxation and enjoyment, making it the perfect setting for admiring the well thought out planting after a seasonally inspired lunch or followed by a delicious afternoon tea.
