Welcome to Whilton Locks Garden Village

We are a family run, independent Garden Centre nestled in the Northamptonshire countryside just off the A5, close to Daventry. We have been open since 2004 and the site is vibrant and full of interesting stuff. As we are independent we are able to choose our own stock, which means that we have one-off pieces, and some more unusual items, whilst still catering for all your gardening needs.

We have a team of friendly plant experts that will be able to give you advice on new planting schemes and any existing issues you may have. Our choice of great value compost is second to none and we always have someone with a smile to load your car! We stock paving slabs, gravels and other landscaping goods, outside furniture (including Hartman’s Jamie Oliver range), benches, HTA vouchers, pots, tools, sheds and indoor furniture. We have a fabulous range of affordable gifts for all occasions and the perfect greetings card to accompany it.

On site we have a great pet store called Brunos, with yet more qualified staff and lots of pets including all the accessories that you may need. Our Aquatics department will be able to talk you through all aspects of fish care from installing a pond to setting up a tropical tank.

In our Canalside Restaurant you will be able to get fantastic value breakfasts, hearty homemade meals, snacks or rich Douwe Egberts coffee, or Yorkshire Tea and a wedge of homemade cake. Our canalside spot makes it a smashing meeting place and our flat site makes access easy for all.
NEW – find out more about our delightful Afternoon Tea for Two.

We look forward to welcoming you on your visit to Whilton Locks Garden Village.
