Thorne’s Garden Nursery is a family business that has been operational since December 2000.

Our centre is an extremely pleasant place to visit for all of the family.  You are welcome to walk around, see our extensive range of plants, pots, garden ornaments and our great range of hens for the garden.  We even have geese and a family of Rhia on site.

Why not then drop into the Potting Shed Café for a bite to eat?  We offer teas, real coffee, delicious lunches and scrumptious homemade cakes. Our site is mostly wheelchair friendly, although to get to some chicken areas it is necessary to travel over (short) grass.  We also welcome well-behaved dogs in the centre, but we ask that they are kept on a lead at all times because of the livestock. We look forward to seeing you soon!


We are very proud to announce that we have been awarded a certificate of excellence by Trip Advisor because of our wonderful customers and their great reviews. Everyone at Thorne’s would like to thank you all and look forward to seeing you soon.   Click to see more…

"Second visit to this great little garden centre café and this time with the wife! Great location, excellent food and friendly staff. Shop has great gift ideas, plant selection is very good and café superb! Definitely worth a visit."

Martin P

Good food nearly all home cooked, always clean and tidy, and great staff what more do you want in a café.

 Phillip S

Good snacks and lunches with a friendly atmosphere . Once you've been a few times the staff usually know what you'd like as soon as you arrive . Unless you change your mind of course!
