The lovely Stubbings nursery provides respite from the M4 and M40 motorways.

The Glasshouse Café is part of the established family-run nursery. It is a popular destination, overlooking the 18th-century, Grade-II listed walled garden alongside. Take a table by the window to watch the wildlife in the beautifully tended garden as you fill up on tasty local food, from grilled breakfasts to soups, quiches, jacket potatoes and sandwiches. The freshly-made scones are especially recommended. Dogs and their owners are welcome on the covered south-facing decking, set with colourful tables and decorated with bunting.

Musically as well as horticulturally talented, the family sometimes run a short opera summer season; they have also recently hosted productions of Shakespeare and outdoor cinema screenings. Stubbings is home to year-round events, from Breakfast with Santa to Ghost Walks – check out their website for details.
