  • Good range of plants. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Lots of bits and pieces in the shop. I have never used the cafe so cannot comment on that but there always seems to be plenty of people ...  read more »
  • Extensive plant, equipment and garden furniture range, good value for money, helpful and knowledgeable staff. 
  • I love going here freindly staff. Good snacks . reasonable prices. great plants . meat veg,clothes gifts booze antiques. 
  • I really like the coffee shop, here. It makes for a good afternoon, with a stroll around the garden centre and farm shop
  • Sheeplands is great. It's like one of those village tourist attractions that is immensely entertaining but a bit run down. If you can forego the sanitised, duplicated Wyvale experience you will find a treasure trove of housewares, seasonal gifts and quality toys (they have a great range of Melissa and Doug wooden toys, for instance) and many niche and small company products you will have trouble finding elsewhere (Yes, whatever your taste you will find the good, the bad and the ugly as well). There is a permanent small farm animal zoo, cafe with soft play (a couple of quid, bargain), connect 4, mini library and wheely carts for under and over 3s separately. At the moment they have 2 waterwalkers spheres and plastic rink ice skating out doors, both for a fiver which is a bargain. A full blown restaurant, good food at a decent price. It is regularly busy and can get packed on the weekend. They stage plays, have a fresh fish man (check his hours, though) have really friendly staff who seem genuinely interested in being helpful, a farm shop to die for, local produce , beer, specialist food, clean loos, good parking and , oh yes, a garden centre! Yes, it's a bit worn around the edges, but that's part of the charm. Really, go there!
  • We liked the plants collection and the prices
  • Good amenity, with fun events. Great coffee shop in a converted greenhouse! All the usual graden centre stuff, family run, reasonable prices. Much nicer than the 'corporate' place over the other side of the A4.
  • Never not a good visit. We frequently visit here for the farm shop, and I particularly recommend visiting around Christmas time!
