Bradley Gardens

An 18th century walled garden, full of hidden luxuries including a cafe and restaurant, fashion and gift stores, homeware shop and a garden shop.

You’ll not want to share this place with your friends, because you’ll want it to be all yours. How could you not share though, Bradley Gardens deserves all the love – this secret garden is an oasis of calm only 10 miles from Newcastle.

The walled garden is gorgeously maintained and changes on every visit with new plants and flowers emerging. Book for a delicious breakfast, lunch, or afternoon tea, and lose hours enjoying the garden and visiting the shops hidden in the wall. You can treat yourselves to homeware – from furniture and kitchenware to candles and cushions (you can shop this more at their city centre Bridgewater store, only North East partner for Neptune), as well as lovely gifts and ladies wear. Before you leave you can have a browse of the garden store; plants, pots, sculptural pieces as well as all sorts of important items for the green-fingered, or aspiring green-fingered amongst us.
