We are so confident in the quality of our hardy plants that we are happy to guarantee them for 3 years. We will gladly replace any hardy stock that does fail, provided it has been looked after correctly. Simply return the plant within 3 years, along with original proof of purchase.

Our delivery service is currently working on reduced capacity and therefore limited to garden furniture, BBQs and large specimen plants that cannot be transported by car. Minimum spend and delivery charges may apply.

The outdoor play area is located next to the restaurant.

During selected school holiday we run “Create & Grow”, where family activities are designed with young children in mind, giving them the opportunity to get creative, learn more about gardening, wildlife and the natural world whilst getting their hands dirty with a range of gardening and craft activities!

Create & Grow was designed to engage children in learning about nature in a fun and exciting way, with a variety of activities the whole family can get involved, run by our friendly staff.

For details about the next Create & Grow, please visit the events pages or ask a member of staff if not listed.

You can hire our restaurant for private functions. We offer an optional catering service. For more details please email or call the centre.

We are delighted to be supporting the Woodlarks Camp Site Trust as our charity of the year until July 2020.
