We Welcome All

Accessibility ♿

The Garden Centre has disabled parking spaces with level access at the North entrance and a slope at the South entrance. Both main entrances have automatic doors and within the centre there is a combination of ramps, slopes, automatic & manual doors (the manual doors can be avoided by taking a different route).

We offer wheelchairs & mobility impaired walkers for customer use, but unfortunately we don’t provide a hearing induction loop at this time. We also provide standard and accessible toilets with low level facilities. The Four Seasons Terrace Café is on the upper level but can be accessed using the lift. Tables and chairs are not permanently fixed.

Our Dog Policy

We 💖 Dogs!

Dogs are allowed in the Garden Centre & Nursery but unfortunately not in the café. To dine with your pup, please sit on the outside terrace which can be accessed from the nursery, where we offer seating for humans too! We supply free drinking water for our thirsty furry friends and even have a few items on the menu specially made for them.

Store FAQs 💭

Here are our most asked questions about the shop! If we haven't answered your question here, please feel free to contact us for further information and we'll be happy to help.

What's the parking like?

We have a large car park that's free for all of our customers to use! We kindly ask that if you decide to venture to another part of Ambleside after your shopping, please park your car elsewhere so we can make room for more visitors.

Can I come and view all of the furniture in store?

Unfortunately, we have limited floor space and only show a small selection of what we sell online. The bonus of coming in store is that it gives you the chance to try out the seating, or get assistance from our knowledgeable colleagues! If you have a particular piece in mind, please feel free to call ahead so we can see if it's in stock to avoid disappointment.

Do you offer home delivery for furniture purchased in store?

Yes! For Garden Furniture purchased in our store, we offer a home delivery service. All orders over £50 qualify for FREE UK Standard delivery, so go home, put your feet up, and let us worry about getting your furniture to you.

What times are you open (shop and café)?

Our shop is open 9am - 5:30pm Monday to Friday, and 10am - 4:30pm on Sundays. Please note that the café closes one hour before the Garden Centre does.

Can I book a table in the café/restaurant?

No, seating is first come first serve I'm afraid. We do offer online ordering though - meaning you can scan a QR code found on your table to select your food. If that's not your thing, one of our lovely colleagues will happily take your order.

Do you allow dogs?

Yes! We love dogs of all shapes and sizes. Dogs are allowed in all areas except for our Four Season Terrace Café. To enjoy a treat with your pup, please use the outside entrance to the café and opt to dine alfresco!
