National Insect Week returns in 2022

Woodside Plant centre and Tearoom

Woodside Plant centre and Tearoom

Woodside is not just a plant centre and a cafe, but also a working kitchen and ornamental garden within a traditional walled garden setting. We run our garden as a wildlife haven. Together with the local branch of the RSPB we have created a unique 'Homes for Wildlife Garden', and we focus on growing (and selling) plants that have benefits to wildlife. Woodside is home to a diverse population of birds and insects, as well as a healthy newt population and a family of happy hedgehogs.
