  • A very nice place to visit. There is a butcher department selling good meat and bbq items plus a cake and sweet stall. Clothes and shoes are of good quality, plus a couple of named outlets such as Bon...  more »
  • Not being a gardener I head for the coffee shop. Great helpful staff and a coffee by the lake. What more do you need, forget the plants.  more »
  • We took our grandchildren, aged 3 and 1, to the new play barn. A good quality facility which is ideal for younger children. The 3 year old easily managed the large equipment without adult assistance, ...  more »

  • It's your typical garden centre... Gardening stuff, but an aquatics centre also, a book shop and a place to buy cotton traders. The people are friendly, and there's some quite strange looking chickens roaming about the place. I mean really, really weird-looking. I'm not entirely sure whether it's the breed of chicken, or they're some sort of genetic aberration. Anyway, I digress. If you want something for your garden, or to stick in a fish tank, you'll find it at Whisby garden centre. P. S. Don't stare at the chickens, cos they stare back.
  • Beautiful garden centre! We pass this every time we go to visit the in-laws and we finally made it a day trip out. There is a fab selection of little shops to browser through and then the animal farm part is amazing! £2.50 each (under 2's are free) and they have goats, deer, rabbits, horses, llamas, pigs and fish to entertain the little ones. Then there is an outside play area with slides and even a water pump. They are currently building an indoor soft play area which they think should be ready by Autumn this year, so it will further improve it. Plenty of parking and lovely staff...definitely worth a visit if you have a free day!
  • I love visiting here. To me, it's not as regimented as other garden centres. It's a little higgledy-piggedly. It has a much more 'natural' feel to it. It has something for everyone; there are animals and a play area for the kids, a lake to chill out by and a variety of little 'shops' selling outdoor wear, garden furniture and everything for the avid aquarium keeper. It has a reasonable sized cafe that serves okay food and coffee.
  • We visited the tea rooms and didn't really visit the other shopping experiences on the site so can't comment on those. The tea room serves excellent food at very good prices. The service is pretty good too, I'd give the tea rooms on their own 5 stars but the rest of the garden centre isn't up to much...
  • Nice place to visit wether your into gardening or not. A few shops within the complex with a nice cafe overlooking the lake. Try a days fishing or maybe bring the kids to see the animals.
