Bay View Garden Centre

Bay View Garden Centre


Situated just off the A6 and only minutes from the M6, Junction 35, Bay View Garden Centre is still one of the area's best kept secrets.

David has spent over 30 years working with plants and he and partner Stephanie's passion is evident all around this charming garden centre. The large plant area is jam packed with colour and scent in the spring and summer months, there is always a fantastic choice.

The café 'The Potting Shed' offers unique views across the bay to the English lakes and the fells from the narrow shore front at Bolton-le-Sands. Situated close to the area of outstanding natural beauty of Silverdale and Arnside it is a truly magical place as the season change. The menu offered is seasonal and changing with it fresh, local and made to order. Breakfast, lunches, bakes, cakes and afternoon teas are all served.

In addition to the wide selection of plants Bay View offers a mix of home and gift ranges, Changing with the seasons, starting with a splash of vibrant colour in spring and finishing with a bang as the Christmas festivities take hold. Bay View is well known for their 'individual' Christmas displays and the sparkle that goes with them.
