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.
We have built our reputation by offering the highest quality plants and horticultural products, together with unrivalled advice and expert knowledge, for all your gardening needs. Our large spacious centres also sell an extensive selection of composts, flower, vegetable & herb seeds, houseplants, garden furniture & accessories, garden tools, clothing & footwear, garden pots & containers and a large selection of homeware & gifts.
St John's Ashford is a Weber BBQ Certified Premium Store where you can browse one of the biggest selections of Weber BBQ’s in Devon, alongside the British made Fire Pits and the popular Ooni Pizza Ovens.
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!
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!
Compliment your garden purchases by having them planted and maintained by our professional and qualified horticultural team. All landscaping work undertaken with no job to small or large. Contact our Landscaping department for more information.
