Colourful display of plants for you to take home

Enjoy our recently extended plant centre and find a lasting souvenir of your visit. As well as quality plants and herbs, you'll find interesting garden accessories and furniture.

All of our plants are grown in peat-free compost and sourced as locally as possible. Examples of many plants can be seen flourishing in our walled garden.

Enjoy a lunch with local produce

We use as many ingredients as possible from our vegetable garden in our restaurant; from heart-warming soups to our sumptuous Sunday roasts. Where possible, we source other produce locally to reduce our food mileage.

Why not come and enjoy a coffee or tea with a slice of heavenly cake, served all day in the Barn Restaurant?
