About us


At The Old Well garden centre we believe that plants and gardening should be at the heart of a Garden Centre, hence our fantastic reputation for a large year round range of plants and trees at great prices. Having said that, before you get busy in your garden you should be able to take a break and treat yourself to a great cup of coffee or home cooked meal in our Coffee Bar or Restaurant.

Over the years The Old Well garden centre has had a long and varied history. From the early days of The Old Well Road House, an ideal stop off for people travelling to and from the South West long before the motorway was built, to one of the largest and most popular Lido outdoor swimming pools in Mid Devon, to Little Chef services, to The Old Well Camping site, to The Old Well filling station and finally, as it is today, The Old Well Garden Centre.

Each of these different phases of The Old Well have left its mark in varying ways. The Old Well remains a great meeting spot for friends, near and far, to catch up. The great customer service  of the attended petrol station can still be found in our staff today and you can even buy swimming pool and hot tub chemicals in the garden centre.

Most of all we hope you have an enjoyable shopping experience at The Old Well Garden Centre. Find us located close to junction 27 of the M5 just off the A38.
