This is a lovely and judging by the building work going on, ever expanding nursery with associated businesses around the site. These include a pet shop, vintage collectors store, hot tubs, clothing and a good cafe. They had an Amazing selection of plants and the biggest display of succulents I have seen when I visited in September but some of the plant display had been given over to many Christmas display counters. Also have a lovely selection of gifts, vases, outdoor clothing etc.Outside there are many more plants and also live poultry if you fancy having fresh eggs every day.Overall one of the best nurseries in the area and well worth a visit.

Visited for lunch yesterday. Café excellent. However, I was then overcharged for an item in The Shoe cabin's supposed sale. The cashier actually wrote a higher price on the tag, explaining that the existing price of £31.00 was 'a mistake'...She then wrote £44.00 on the tag before applying the sale discount!! I don't believe that this is legal? My friend and I were stunned with disbelief!

If you have not yet visited you are missing out! This is a fantastic place to go and explore. The garden centre has a great range of plants fro sure but this place offers much more. A poultry centre where you can view all types of poultry up close and buy some for your own supply of eggs! The cafe is tastefully created using old reclaimed brick and offers a great range of food and drinks. Then there are the other shops on site ranging from a wedding shop to a reptile centre where you often see snakes out in the open!

A our first visit to the Bell Plantation Garden Centre. Ideal place to stop for food and refreshments as it is located on a major road. Staff were very friendly and polite. Food was very good and well prepared. The beetroot spinach quiche was full of flavour. We sat outside but our bench didn't have a parasol and it got very hot and difficult to see as the white table reflected the sun light.
