Hayes Garden World


Set amidst breathtaking Lakeland scenery at Ambleside, our family business is an attraction for all seasons. Remowned for an extensive range of quality gardening and lesiure products, Hayes has been providing the highest standards of service and value for over 200 years. We stock an enormous range of plants, shrubs and trees and everything for the gardening enthusiast, from pots to planters, trellis to gazebos and one of the best selections of garden furniture in the region. Our friendly and expert staff are always on hand to provide advice and assistance or to try to answer any of your gardening queries.

Our enormous indoor shopping halls house a multitude of products; everything from kitchenalia, books, greetings cards, fashion accessories, jewellery and handbags, to clothing and footwear. In recent years, a number of high-street concession stores have joined us including large branches of The Edinburgh Woollen Mill and Cotswold Outdoor. In the Autumn our shopping halls are transformed into a Wonderful World of Christmas, housing one of the finest displays of trees, lights and all manner of Christmas decorations in the north.

With ample free parking and our own Four Seasons Terrace Café on site, enjoy a shopping trip to Hayes when you are next in the Lakes - the perfect venue, whatever the weather!

We also welcome groups, parties & coaches of any size, which we can comfortably accommodate in our designated free coach parking areas.
