Parks, Gardens and Garden Centres

Carewswood Garden Centre

This place is fantastic.  The Cafe/Shop is lovely, great food.  Lovely little play gym for toddlers outside next to the chicken coop.  They also have a few toys and a bench inside the cafe for those rainy days when you can’t get outside!  The seating area outside is a sun trap and you can feel like you are on  your holidays sitting there, eating great food, drinking coffee while the kids play.  Great destination and it is a regular for us!  Obviously they have a great selection of plants and flowers as well!  They also do arts and crafts saturday morning for kids.  Check out the classes page.

Ballyseedy Home and Garden

Great food,  Great coffee…. love Badger and Dodo coffee so this is a favourite of ours.  Little table and chairs for kids down the back with a few books.  There is a little toy shop inside here as well which is great for picking up a few bits.  Part of the outside area is covered so even when it is raining I find this place great for a wander.
