No visit to the Lake District is complete without taking a trip to Hayes Garden World!

Not far from the shores of Lake Windermere in Ambleside, Hayes Garden World is the largest centre of its kind in the North of England and steeped in over 200 years of horticultural heritage. 

Hayes Garden World is much more than just a garden centre

We have a huge range of giftware, decorative pots, greetings cards, kitchenware, local speciality food & drink and much, much more, also a huge extension which houses our garden furniture. We are also home to one of the UK's few Weber Worlds in our Barbecue Shop which stocks everything you could need to become a gourmet BBQ chef. Our pet department stocks a huge array of treats for your four-legged friend. We also have our spectacular World of Plants with seasonal displays for inspiration in our covered plant arenas. From the end of October to Christmas we have a massive spectacular Christmas display where you are sure to be tempted by anything from a single bauble to a new pre-lit artificial Christmas tree.

Instore Concessions Too!

We are delighted to welcome three fabulous outlets to our Ambleside site. Cotswold Outdoor are specialists in all manner of all-weather clothing, footwear & accessories. Edinburgh Woollen Mill, the ever-popular mens & ladies fashion chain also have an extensive outlet inside our Ambleside store. We have just recently added the footwear outlet Pavers to our concessions to give you even more choice in our fabulous store.

 Coach drivers please note that at busy times there may not be space for parking your coach so you may have to drop passengers and park on the coach park at Rothay Road. Our Four Seasons Terrace Cafe is now table service so if your passengers do require refreshments they won't all be able to access the cafe at the same time, therefore we may not be able to accommodate all your passengers. Due to the new system and the fact that everything is cooked to order it does mean that there is a longer wait than there was previously with the old self service system. We suggest that if you are visiting at meal times you book at an alternative venue in the vacinity to make sure that your party is accommodated.

Free Admission.  Extensive indoor shopping. Four Seasons Terrace Café. Hayes Garden World offers disabled access and is open seven days a week all year round (excluding Christmas Day & Easter Sunday).
