Little Heath Farm Plant Nursery Tea Shop and Crafts Shop near Berkhamsted
Little Heath Farm Plant Nursery, tea shop and crafts shop on the outskirts of Potten End village near Berkhamsted in Herts.
Little Heath Farm nursery is a hardy plant nursery, specialising in alpines and herbaceous perennials, alongside shrubs, ferns and trees with many unusual varieties scattered in all corners, giving it a cottage garden feel - a garden centre it isn't. It's tucked away on the edge of the National Trust's Ashridge estate, adjacent to Berkhamsted common - it's not easy to find but definately worth the bother.
You'll be rewarded with an unusual gardening experience and when you're done outside you can enjoy a piece of home-made cake and a pot of tea in the quaint tea room.
The farm is also home to ‘Sanuk’, a tribal arts and crafts shop stocking items from around the world, many of which are fair-trade, as well as Hertfordshire honey (some hives are located just below the nursery) and local free-range eggs. In the summer months, sitting outside by the pond and beneath the grapevine, it is possible to share the space with the numerous butterflies and birds that visit the farm; the perfect way to relax after an afternoon pottering around the nursery.
