For the natural gardener; a garden store and rural craft workshop.

Who we are

Welcome to the Gardener’s Bothy – an independent garden store and rural craft workshop in the corner of the former walled garden on the Staunton Harold Estate, near Ashby de la Zouch in Leicestershire.

The present Gardener’s Bothy is the shop front for Cameron Forest and Garden Ltd, an established local company of 'foresters, sawyers and gardeners' and also serves to showcase the talent of other local crafts-folk working in wood within the National Forest. For more information go to the about us section.
