This is primarily an outlet to buy water plants, pond equipment and associated accessories. It also happens to have nice gardens to wander round and a good cafe.

The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and happy to help with any questions you have, particularly Dani (the owner?) who was happy to spend half an hour with us making suggestions about suitable plants for the size of pond we have. The range of plants is huge, all well labelled with details of their size, whether they are native or not, spread, how deep they need to be and flowering times.

This is NOT the sort of “aquatics” centre you will find attached to your average garden centre, where you might find 5 water lilies and a handful of other water plants - it is a specialised outlet with a very large range and very knowledgeable staff.

Free to visit. lovely gardens with plenty of plants and fish to by. knowledgeable friendly staff. Lovely cafe too. Excellent way to spend a peaceful afternoon. Also great for the children too as they can buy a bag of food to feed the fish. very relaxing, well worth a visit.

Came with my sister and grandparents for lunch and it was simply delicious! All food was lovely and fresh and prices are very reasonable too!

The gardens are also very pretty and lovely to wonder around particularly when the sun is shining!

Overall a really lovely place and it is dog friendly and child friendly too! Would highly recommend!

Brought my mum and brother here a week ago.came with my mum last July and we both enjoyed our visit.so I thought I would bring them both here today my mum has been very poorly all this year so now she's getting better I wanted to take her somewhere that wouldn't be to noisey and busy.and we had a lovely afternoon we had tea and cake in the café first which was nice and reasonably priced then we went round the gardens and looked at the fish in the ponds then went inside and see more in the tanks which was all lovely.staff were polite. a enjoyable afternoon will visit again.
