Welcome to St John's Garden Centres at Barnstaple & Ashford

We are North Devon’s leading Garden Centre based in St John's Lane, Barnstaple and Strand Lane, Ashford (between Barnstaple and Braunton). Our independent, family-run, business has been serving both local and regional customers and the community for over 60 years.

Our restaurants offer a delicious menu, freshly cooked for you. A lovely place to catch up with friends and family and enjoy breakfast, morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea.

Well behaved dogs (on leads) are allowed in our Garden Centres, however they are not allowed in our restaurants (with the exception of service dogs).


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!
