Really different feel to the place with a wide range of different plants on show. Reasonably priced. Nice little area indoors and out to finish your visit with something to eat and drink, again sensibly priced.

Visited The place for plants for morning coffee. A lovely lady call Lyn served us and absolutely nothing was too much trouble for her. Even to sorting out a very weak coffee. Her smile was genuine and she was such pleasant lady.

Wonderful nursery, very wide range and good quality. Good coffee and cakes. The highlight was the garden, which made a lovely stroll around with large trees giving shade on a hot day. Highly recommended.

The Garden & Arboretum are amazing. Although our timing was just right for the Magnolias, Rhododendrons and 'Handerchief' tree. There were well planted borders, a number of different trees and bushes which I could not recognise. A wander through the gardens is a welcome relief.

yes they have a cafe next to their garden shop. We did not have lunch, but we did have cake and a coffee which we ate outside in the sunshine. It was a beautiful place to sit - next to all their plants for sale.
