Larch Cottage Nurseries reviews
Well worth searching out if you are in the Penrith area, the Nurseries sets a standard which others could follow, with the creative intertwining of sculpture and other features along with the plants..... more »
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Fabulous little cafe serving quality food and drinks, some tables on the verandah offering great views. It does get busy so probably best to book beforehand. The garden..... more »

First ever visit and I shall return, great selection and variety of plants. Amazing layout and plenty of space to wander and see the plants in their natural locations.. thanks to Nicola for her help with my questions. Great staff make a great business..
Every time I visit the lakes Larch Cottages is always on my visiting list. It is the most wonderful place to be. Fantastic scenery and every plant you could wish for. The restaurant is fabulous. Beautiful Wisteria creeping around the balcony and birds visiting your table. Glorious scenery to feast on which ever way you choose to look. I look forward to my next visit and many, many more in the future.
Great selection of unusual plants set amongst gardens too see how they work with other combinations.
A magnificent garden to visit with stunning sculptures and exotic rare plants. Beautifully landscaped with lily ponds and Roman gardens decked with hostas and ferns. Inside a romantic stone folly is a restaurant serving delicious home made food and there is a lovely gallery and shop selling hand crafted unusual gifts. Well worth a visit. We go most weeks for plants and sculptures for our garden.
What an amazing place this is, set amongst faux Roman ruins, with just about every quality plant you can think of, this is a gardeners’ dream. I was looking for a specific deciduous pine but didn’t know the name and asked a young female member of staff if they had any and she immediately reeled off three Latin name options in stock and showed me each one. The pine I bought has a fantastic rootball and has settled in well!
