The Walled Garden at Mells

A rural cafe and plant nursery in the heart of Mells in Somerset

Welcome to The Walled Garden at Mells

For the past nine years we have been warmly welcoming people to this unique space to enjoy the peace tranquility and unique setting that this part of Somerset offers.

We are a small rural walled cottage garden in the heart of the Mells village, Somerset. Set in an acre of ground the garden is split between a plant nursery and a delightful rambling garden where you can grab a cup of tea from the outdoor café and lose yourself in the tranquility. The plant nursery specialises in cottage garden perennials with a focus on bee and insect friendly plants, we also sell herbs, and locally made iron work by Stray Sparks.

The Garden  and Cafe is open from March through to the end of October every year.  We are now closed for the season while we get the garden and the nursery ready to open in 2018 but we will be selling Christmas trees in December


This year we will be selling Christmas trees on the three Saturdays (9th/16th/23rd) leading up to Christmas so look out of notifications on Facebook or order in advance through this link

£5.00 from the sale of every tree will be donated to The Frome’s Big Get-together and Fair Frome, to local and very worthy initiatives.
