Brechin Castle Garden Centre
27 January 2009
This is a great place for a day out as there’s so much you can do. First of all, it is a garden centre with all that you’d expect. Then there are all the displays of gifts - perfumed candles, cards, ornaments etc - and a wide range of kitchen accessories and crockery. There is a coffee shop which has a big, spacious area for seating that overlooks the country park. Quite a good selection of food including soups, snacks, main courses and of course cakes, but they have an annoying habit of starting to clean up while you’re still eating if you visit near the end of the day. Nothing like making you feel unwelcome! Despite commenting on this, it’s continued so feel that customer care is perhaps not top of the agenda for some staff. The country park includes a model farm and covering 65 acres, with a play area and nature trails. There is also a barrel train and tractor and card rides.There is ample parking and that’s also been a venue for the Angus Farmers’ Market when we visited one Saturday.
A trip pre-Christmas is lovely when they have the displays of lit trees and decorations.
Free wi-fi is a new feature in the coffee shop and there are often special offers mentioned on the website.
