Potting Shed Café offers very good food. Fish and chips was excellent with delicate batter. My whole party of five were well satisfied with smoked salmon and prawn sandwich as well as the humble ham and cheese. Generous helpings and great service.

This place is so beautiful. Grasmere was full of tourists on that weekend but I could feel the tranquility. It is surrounded by small hills and greenery. Must visit place in Lake District.

Warm and friendly staff. Good selection of plants. Delightful shop with unusual and pretty gifts. Lovely café with homemade food and plenty of choice and most importantly it was dog friendly throughout. Thank you for making our day so good.

The garden centre is a minor player; there is both a small cafe ( tiffin looks good) and a shop selling country casual clothing and nic-nacs with a smallish garden centre attached. Azaleas grow well in this climate
