Important Announcement

Following the announcement to implement a social distancing strategy to suppress the spread of the Coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the decision to close Grass Hoppers today until further notice.

In addition, we have also introduced measured spacing in the Restaurant to ensure a suitable distance is maintained and ask that all guests respect this move.

The rest of the garden centre and the Food Hall will remain open at this stage as we continue to monitor the situation closely.

Please be assured that our team are already in the process of contacting you if:

  • you have booked a play session at Grass Hoppers
  • you have a birthday party booked at Grass Hoppers

If you have any additional questions at this stage, we ask that you contact the garden centre by email to

We do ask for your patience and we will of course work as quickly as we can to resolve all customer enquiries as promptly as possible.

We will continue to publish any updates on our social media sites so please do follow us if you would like to remain informed.

We do hope that you and your families stay well in these worrying and unprecedented times.

We have provided a Q&A section which we hope will answer many of the specific questions you may have. Find out more here >
