"All the lovely things you expect from a garden centre - plants obviously but a large array of everything you need including garden accessories, lovely kids section of garden tools, wellies, jams, pickles and lovely greetings cards - the list goes on. The jewel in the crown is their cafe. Love, love, love this place."
