Lovely place with lovely staff

I had originally went here for an event first time here and what a beautiful place so much for the children to do our day ended a nightmare because of a mess around by a taxi service the girls were amazing though my son who had additional needs was in a right meltdown mood and i don't know what I'd done without the girls they made sure we got to take our picnic home and arranged a taxi straight away and even rang the next day to see if we got back ok honestly couldn't thank them enough definately our new favourite place to go x

Best Garden Centre in County Durham

Having not visited Lanchester Garden Centre in over 2 years I was amazed at the vast changes that have taken place. There is loads to see including birds of prey, owls, chainsaw carvings, ducks, gardens and the all important FREE playtunnel for the kids. The Greenhouse restaurant is beautiful and had the most delicious salmon lunch! Will be back and look forward to seeing what else is new..
