Welcome to Trelawney
Trelawney Garden Centre which is situated just outside Wadebridge on the A389 was founded in 1970 by Frank and Marion Danning as a small nursery supplying home grown fruit, vegetables and flowers from a roadside stall to local customers as they passed by.
As time progressed the business flourished and with the help of son David who joined straight from school and David Symons, who started working for the family at the age of 11, Trelawney Nurseries gradually became Trelawney Garden Centre as the range of goods stocked widened to provide for all gardening needs. The business which became renowned for it’s quality, variety of products and friendly family atmosphere is now recognised as one of the top garden centres in the country. The centre has been awarded commendation for many departments and its staff by the Garden Centre Association inspectors and in fact gaining the award of the top garden centre in the Wales & West region for the last few years and the accolade of a ‘Garden Centre of Excellence’ which is only given to the top 10 centres in the UK.
Trelawney @ Ashford was purchased in 2005 by David Danning & David Symons who between them have owned Trelawney Garden Leisure in Cornwall for over 20 years. They were delighted to be offered the Ashford centre by the Banbury family which was at the time trading in their name.
The aim was to strengthen the gardening offer at the centre whilst at the same time retaining its wonderful restaurant and giftware sections. The spring of 2006 saw the first of the changes planned for the site with the development of an enlarged garden sundries department and Planteria.
2010 saw the addition of an under covered Planteria and brand new entrance for the store giving it the WOW factor as soon as you drive into the site. The new Planteria enables people to shop for plants no matter what the weather all year round. The store has also undergone a massive re-shuffle of departments giving us a better layout and so easier shopping for our customers.
Now 7 years later the store is unrecognisable to its predecessor, with a fantastic range of gardening and lifestyle products we aim to have everything you could need for your garden.
2010 saw our 40th anniversary of opening the business. We would like to thank our customers for their continued support over the last 40 years and we hope to be here in 40 years time. We also want to thank our fantastic staff members who provide and excellent service for our customers
