Situated in northwest Cardoss, Geilston is celebrated for its shapely landscaping, which harmonises nature and cultivation. At the centre is the walled garden, dating back to 1797, dominated by a mammoth Wellingtonia tree. Be inspired by the 40m long herbaceous perennial border, or wander into wilder territory down by the Geilston Burn to connect with nature.
The kitchen garden springs to life in April and May, and later in the season you can buy our delicious fresh fruit and vegetables. There is no better place than Geilston to enjoy a picnic.
Children will love the ‘Hobbit hole’ play area, floral mini-maze and exploring the bluebell woods along the Geilston Burn.
