Rutland Garden Centre  and café on the outskirts of Oakham, located within the selection of tempting shops at Rutland Garden Village.

Gates Garden Centre is only 4 miles from Oakham in Cold Overton, and was built in an original Victorian Walled Garden (formerly part of Cold Overton Hall). This spectacularly successful garden centre is still run by the Gates family and features a wide range of indoor and outdoor plants as well as garden care, hardware, homeware, gifts, garden furniture and BBQ’s. The Garden Restaurant serves breakfasts, lunches and afternoon tea in a beautiful setting with outstanding views across rolling Rutland countryside. This really is a perfect place, come rain or shine, to visit; with snug seating around wood burners during the Winter and breathtaking outdoor verandas overlooking the lakes in Summer. In addition, a children’s play area will keep younger visitors entertained and a Christmas display, complete with Father Christmas and his reindeer, that has become a joy for families to visit every year.

Welland Vale – Garden Inspirations is close to Uppingham and is filled with everything for the discerning gardener, including an extensive range of quality home grown plants, shrubs, climbers and perennials.
