I’ve been going to this shopping outlet over the years, since the backend of 2017, you are now allowed to take well behaved dogs into most of the shops. Up until recently you could not take dogs around the garden centre / or into the little cafe which is attached to the haberdashery store.

What I like about this garden centre is the great choice of garden furniture. It maybe expensive, however the quality, designs and the selection is excellent. It’s worth a visit. The choice of shops include pavers shoes, leading labels, cotton traders, cook shop, the works, haberdashery, posh dog shop & more.

The shopping here i feel is only for people with money to burn! Very expensive in most the shops here.
But it does have a really lovely walk behind it with a little play and picnic area! Great for a sunny day

First time I've booked in for a craft activity morning at crafters companion.
Really enjoyed it. Lots of free parking. Lots of coffee shops.

Not as good as it used to be. Several of the shops have closed down and Fat Face is now a full price store so you may as well shop locally. The Crafter cafe is okay for sandwiches but the tea is a rip off. A small pot for two costs £4. Having visited several times in the past we won't be going again unless things improve.

Spent ages here and had a lovely day out!!
Drove down to the furthest car park (following advice i had found online) and pulled my waking boots on. Took the track right in front of me (presumed the one to the right would be the railway?) and headed down hill (you see some solar panels on the fields in front further away). We came to a fork and headed down again and came next to the river, walked a bit and it actually just took us in a loop back to the fork at the start! ( no signs anywhere!). So then we headed left again and this took us on a lovely long walk following the river towards the golf course. We walked a good 35 mins before turning back and headed to the garden centre. Some lovely views of the river and ducks. Well worth a wander before lunch. It was really muddy in places so you do need your boots on to walk!
Lunch was lovely. Huge restaurant. And actually I could have eaten loads. It all looked so nice! I saw a one course roast was 9.95 and Two courses for 12.95. The crumble puds looked divine! I also liked the look of the cheesecakes.... And the pasta bake... And more!
This is a nice big garden centre, had a good mooch round garden furniture and a huge gift area too.
Planning to visit again soon when we visit the Malvern hills to climb the Worcestershire beacon.
