Emerging from the bramble choked wilderness of an abandoned plant nursery Potager is now a relaxing and beautiful haven to rest a while. With mature trees which were once nursery stock and lush herbaceous planting interspersed with fruit and vegetables Potager aims to demonstrate the beauty of productive organic gardening.
In Alistair Sawday's guide to ‘Slow England’ Potager was selected for its uniquely calm atmosphere. There are games to play, hammocks to laze in, boule and badminton to enjoy. Table tennis nestles amongst an indoor garden within a 100 foot glasshouse where visitors can sit, paint or even snooze!
A refurbished wooden greenhouse provides more shelter and sustenance. With books, newspapers and more table games, the café offers homemade breakfasts, cakes, lunches, teas and ice cream. Please be aware we don't take card payments.
Dogs are welcome on a lead. It's £2.50 for garden entry (£2 concessions, kids free) or just £5 for a season ticket. Garden entry (not compulsory if you're just visiting the café) helps to support the efforts of the team of volunteer gardeners.
