    Lovely garden centre with a variety of kids toys, pets toys, food, drinks, garden accessories, plants and clothes. There is a cafe within the garden centre with seating outside and a small playground for kids up to the age of 10 with a slide and a swing. The garden centre was clean and tidy with well looked after toilet facilities very friendly and helpful staff. The Gnome Reserve and Wildflower Garden trail is fun for all ages with over 250 gnomes with lots of them hiding to spot along the way. Dogs are welcome too :-) well worth a visit!

    Recently moved to Woolsery and popped in for a look. Really lovely place, plants all looked healthy and cared for, ended up buying more than we had planned to and they have all taken really well in our garden. Went to restaurant and received the loveliest of welcomes from the lady who approached us and looked after us( she apparently lives in Woolsery), stayed for coffees and cheese scones, cream cheese and chutney, all fresh and delicious. Lovely young man on till, offered us boxes for our plants. We returned another day for more plants and a wander round to see the gnomes, so much fun, no restaurant visit this time but we will 100% return.
