Directions to Hayes Garden World Ambleside, The Largest Garden Centre in Cumbria.
You’ll find Hayes Garden World, a short way off the main A591 Lake District Road, 200 yards south of Ambleside village.
Hayes Garden World is a family owned business that has been in existence, in one form or another, since the early 19th century. Over the years they have been involved in the design & construction of gardens at Lowther Castle, Sizergh Castle & Chelsea Flower Show, where TR Hayes received royal recognition for his design in 1924. Five generations, of the Hayes family, have been involved in the gardening trade and the present site was opened in 1921 (read more...). There have been many changes to the site over the years, the latest starting in 2010, involving the expansion & development of our World of Plants, Outdoor Living, World of Interiors & new Pets & Aquatic section.
Visiting our World of Plants is a must! This outdoor arena has been newly designed to provide an accessible & easy to use cornucopia of plants & planting ideas. The whole area has been paviored & the plants are arranged on new plant beds interspersed with inspirational displays. The area is partially covered by a state of the art curved glass roof which has enabled us to increase our selection of tender plants early in the year & allows you to browse at leisure under cover.
At Hayes Garden World we have always been proud of the extensive range of garden furniture and accessories we have to offer but with our new shop floor development we have been able to increase our ranges and bring them together in one vast area, to enhance your shopping experience. Not only do we stock individual items of garden furniture but we also have a great choice of furniture sets, which make a more competitive buy.
Our new World of Interiors is now open and gives you a unique shopping experience where you can view the fantastic ranges of indoor furniture and home accessories we have to offer. There are eight inspirational room settings show casing bedroom, dining, living room and conservatory furniture in a number of different styles. Our contemporary furniture designs are complemented by everything you need to enhance the beauty of your home from paint and wall coverings to bedding, rugs and lighting.
Our World of Pets & Aquatics is well worth a visit & makes a great trip out for the whole family! We have a great selection of freshwater, tropical & marine fish, plus it is packed with just about everything you need to care of your chosen pet!
So why not visit us & make a day of it, with all these things to see plus our extensive gift area, great selection of gardening accessories & freshly-made produce in the Four Seasons Terrace Café - you can't go wrong!
Unfortunately we only allow Guide Dogs in the Garden Centre or Nursery but we do supply drinking water for dogs and we do have a special dog walk so they can stretch their legs.
