Dogs are welcome

Your family pet can now come along and enjoy the gardening experience with you.

Please note that our furry friends are unable to go into Allweathers and L’Oliveta restaurant. We provide drinking water for our furry friends to all responsible owners. All we ask is for your pooch to be kept on a lead while visiting and clear up mess and then dispose of it properly.

Customer Comments

We love hearing what our customers have to say. It’s almost always a compliment about our fantastic staff. And, on the odd occasion that we get something wrong, we’re grateful to be told about it so that we can put things right.
