More photos follows of gifts and seasonal items being sold in the shop. There are also clothes, decorative items, bags and garden things amongst others. What I love most about the shop? It is constantly changing according to seasons, if you go back in a few month’s time, different items will be sold. I love heading to the Garden Centre just before Christmas as almost half the shop will be dedicated to Christmas toys, decorations, lights as well as Santa’s Groto. There’s just something so magical about the place then.

The outdoor area has about 4 round benches where families can sit down for cakes or their meals while the kids have a run about in the play area. There’s a lovely sand pit, play house and some slides. Its not that big, but it will keep the kids occupied before the food arrives. My kids love having a run about here no matter what the weather.

The Congleton Garden Centre is a great place to head to to grab additions to your garden especially now that the weather is looking a lot better and we are getting ready for summer. At the same time, it is also a great place to grab some fresh, local meat and veg as well as gift items and let the kids let off some steam while you have a drink.
