Willow pool garden centre.

Hi folks 🙂

Today I’m going to tell you about a wonderful garden centre in Lymm, north Cheshire. I come from the village next to Lymm and had never been to this hidden gem until a few years ago, for a friends hen do.

Last week my sister, mother, nephew and myself managed to get together. The garden centre is wonderful has little shops built into barns selling a range of things, home decor, jewelry, clothes, fish and of course plants and other things for the garden.

As an added attraction there is a old/ex Blackpool illumination from the 80’s that is a wonderful “My little pony” I asked my mum if we would have seen it in its former glory at Blackpool, as the illuminations were an annual family trip. She thinks we probably did.

Every weekend there are farmers markets and more stalls open. I saw some lovely antique afternoon tea stands and really want the heart stand,

So after we had a mooch around dodging the cloudbursts we went to have some cake & tea. The Willow tea rooms are worth a visit in their own right. There are a mixture of booths, little greenhouses, bandstands and barns with tables n chairs each with their own theme.

After being spoilt for choice from a range of cakes we opted to order a cake each and split each three ways. We ordered bakewell tart, carrot cake and chocolate fudge cake. Also a pot of tea for 3. All the cakes were delicious fresh and tasty. The tea was served with Mis matching china to drink from. As my middle name is clumsy I of course nearly knocked my cup over on the wobbly tables. If there are a few of you I recommend the dessert for £32 it is served in a massive glass with a spoon just as large. We ordered it on the hen do it was full of ice cream, chocolate brownie, meringue, cream, marshmallow, chocolate and raspberry sauce, strawberries and probably more that I can’t remember.

It was such a lovely way to take tea in a nice relaxing bohemian atmosphere. Even the rain bouncing down felt quite calming. Well worth a visit.
