Recently won the prestigious GCA award for Best Destination Garden Centre in the Midlands Region for the second year running and, this year, was also voted in the top three in the entire UK.

Gates Garden Centre has been in the Gates family for more than half a century. Since then it has become an unmissable attraction – one that is loved by people of all ages.

Located just 4 miles from the delightful market town of Oakham, and on the county boundary between rural Rutland and Leicestershire, we offer a huge range of everything for the garden and much more besides. With Lakeland, Mountain Warehouse, Cotton Traders, Aquatics, Pavers and a farm shop also onsite.

You can browse our extensive range of indoor and outdoor plants, shrubs, bulbs, trees and seeds, gaining inspiration for your own garden as you go! We also stock a huge range of garden care items as well as garden hardware including stoneware, water features, pots, planters and timber items.

Outdoor accessories can really help you to make the most of your garden. At Gates you’ll find a massive range of high-quality garden and patio furniture, chimeneas and firepits, solar lighting and everything you could need for a summer picnic.

If it’s something for the home you are looking for then look no further. We have a beautiful selection of cushions, throws, oak furniture, decorative and practical accessories and kitchenware to choose from. Renew your home accessories, find the perfect gift or accessory for your home and enjoy browsing through our huge range.

If you are looking to experience the best in local produce then Gates Farm Shop is a must. With a focus on offering the finest produce, sourced locally wherever possible, Gates Farm Shop promises customers a true foodie experience.

Enjoy a delicious meal in our welcoming Garden Restaurant, or a barista coffee in the cosy Courtyard Coffee Shop. Shop for your summer BBQ, pick up some Christmas gifts from our winter range or pick up something for your garden, in every season.

More than just a garden centre, we continue to add new products and departments to make Gates a full day out for all the family.

Christmas is a very big affair at Gates, winning many awards for the impressive displays available from early October. No matter the time of year, or whatever the weather, we invite you to come and enjoy the variety of our garden centre and hope you have a great visit.
