Tea in the arbour of the Garden at the Blackthorn Trust


Vegetarian Cafe and Artisan Bakery. Plant Nursery and Shop in the Blackthorn Trust grounds and open Monday to Saturday 9.30. - 3.30pm

And there is more you should know.

These gardens have featured on Gardener's World and they are special in that they are looked after by a community who through various life traumas are getting back on their feet. The garden has a delightful atmosphere but is slightly difficult to find.  Look for the Doctors Surgery, enter through the gate and walk to the left hand side of the building.  Here you will find a passage way through to the gardens and the cafe.

Often produce grown in the garden is served in the café, making it very sustainable and very flavoursome. Once you have found the café you can choose a spot in the garden that suits you.  It could be directly outside on the patio, around the corner in the sensory garden, under the arbour, or under the umbrellas.  You choose what suits you.  There is indoors seating too.
