We are delighted to confirm that both our Garden Room Restaurant in Ashford and our Conservatory Restaurant in Barnstaple are re-opening on Monday 17th May.

We very much look forward to welcoming old and new customers back, whether for coffee and cake, lunch or an afternoon cream tea!

*** COVID UPDATE – 5th JANUARY 2021 ***

We are pleased to announce that following the Government announcement last night we are permitted to stay open, following COVID-19 secure guidelines, as an essential retailer (our restaurants still remain closed until further notice).

We are very happy to offer our customers our ‘call and collect’ service and we will still be out on our local delivery rounds.  Please be assured we will be adhering to strict social distancing guidelines to ensure the safety of our customers and staff.  

North Devon’s leading garden centre based in St.John’s Lane Barnstaple. Our family run business has been providing quality horticultural products and services to local and regional domestic and commercial customers for over 55 years.

We have recently expanded and now have a sister garden centre at Ashford – between Barnstaple and Braunton. We think you will be impressed by our revamped restaurant – The Garden Room – and new menu choices. Over the coming months we will be posting more information about the new centre and any further store changes we are making.


Sorry we don't have any events to display right now.



Buy some garden wares, a few plants, a sun lounger, a pot or two and… you will definitely need a break, in our very accommodating café! Relax with a coffee and homemade fruit or cheese scone, or if you are really famished our light or main meals are very moorish!

Welcome to Jungleland Enjoy the jungle trail

Walk along the jungle trail with a Prof St.John free guide. Answer the simple questions enroute (mum and dad might need help from the kids!), and enjoy the water falls, curvy bridge, fancy plants and wildlife along the way. In December we transform Jungleland to Winter Winterland – sorry you’ll have to wait for that!
