Gardens to visit whilst staying in Telford

Many of our B&B  Guests have asked for guidance on Gardens to visit during their stay. Telford is well placed geographically for a number in the area, all within 40 miles (under 1 hour drive)………. Dorothy Clive Garden near Market Drayton set in 12 acres on a hillside – formal and informal. Wollerton Old Hall Garden near Market Drayton intensively cultivated set in 4 acres.

A day out from our Telford Guest House

Summer is here, hot sun and a day off from our B&B…I think we are entitled now and again…to meet friends at Trentham Gardens. Only 30 miles through the Shropshire and Staffordshire countryside, which is worth the drive in itself. A modest entrance fee (especially for the over 60’s) and a wonderful Italianate garden to explore. There are boat trips along the lake (once part of the River Trent that flows through the estate) and Monkey World for children at the southern end.
