One of our favourite things to do on the weekend, is visit some of the amazing gardens the UK offers. Our most local one is just a mere 12-minute drive away – Trentham Estate. We’re very lucky if we do say so ourselves! Below we’ve noted our top 5 favourite gardens in the UK, with the majority being local to us here in Staffordshire – of course.
Local to our site on Moorfields Industrial Estate, Trentham Estate is a local favourite for us. We’re in a prime location at Cotes Heath in Staffordshire, with beautiful views and countryside surrounding us, and then this beautiful place a short 12-minute drive away. You’ve got a great shopping village to enjoy at first, but then you walk out of the ticket office to the stunning Trentham Gardens. You’ll find a boating lake, a mini train ride, beautiful flower arrangements and even fairy statues dotted around the park.
Bridgemere Garden World
If you live in the Crewe or Nantwich areas, then you can easily take a detour and visit Bridgemere Garden World on the way to our Moorfields site. This is the best place to go in Cheshire if you’re after a garden centre, mini golf, and a market place all under one roof.
Biddulph Grange Garden
Biddulph Grange Garden is a National Trust garden located in Stoke-on-Trent, and is a landscaped Victorian garden. It’s got a lovely café where you can enjoy a spot of lunch, a woodland area for those wishing to walk their dogs, an allotment garden where they often have an Honesty Pot for purchasing plants, plus their actual garden landscapes which are stunning.
The Dorothy Clive Garden
Again, The Dorothy Clive Garden isn’t far from us here at Moorfields Industrial Estate (we told you we were in a brilliant location here)! The garden was initially set up in Colonel Harry Clive’s wartime decision of 1940 to provide his wife, Dorothy, with a series of interesting walks as she battled with Parkinson’s disease.
Fletcher’s Garden Centre
For a fun, couple hours with the family, we highly recommend visiting Fletcher’s Garden Centre in Eccleshall – a short 10-minute drive from our Moorfields site. We recently did a case study on this garden centre, as they recently used our Box Profile Roof Cladding for the new Train Station shelter for the mini train ride they have available for young families!
