Passionate as we are about plants, there’s a lot more to Avon Mill. We are just as passionate about everything else we do here, our food, our gifts, our customers, our staff.

So, the trees and plants in our garden centre are healthy and well cared for. The food in our cafe is cooked in our kitchen here, it's wholesome and delicious. Our deli’s products are stylishly presented and the best that the South West has to offer. And our friendly and knowledgeable staff go out of their way to make your experience here a good one and to welcome your children as well as your dog.

The surrounding Avon Valley and woodland offers fabulous walking and glorious Devon countryside for you to explore. A great spot for bluebells and wild garlic in the spring and a cool retreat in the summer. Magical on a frosty winter's morning.

'Art @ Avon Mill'

The 'First Floor' gallery is home to a seasonal collection of elegant, original and limited edition artworks, with a new collection every three months. More art is on show in our Cafe on the ground floor, so two floors of art to peruse.

Each collection showcases the work of professional and amateur artists from the South West. Open daily, monday-sunday, 10am-5pm.

Whilst viewing the art, why not relax and enjoy a coffee or glass of wine or may be even take lunch, just order from the Cafe below? The 'First Floor' has comfy sofas, so sit back and soak up the calm and creative atmosphere. And in summer months take in the sunshine on our lovely first floor decked terrace and wander the secret garden...

We feel upon Avon Mill by chance and what good fortune it was for us. The garden centre is just lovely and the restaurant wonderful. We sat in the sun and enjoyed a delicious lunch served so well by polite staff. We will call again.

Visited Avon Mill for it's cafe after finding it on a list of the places offering the best cream teas in Devon. Avon Mill cafe didn't disappoint and their cheese scones were scrummy! The only thing I would note is that most places let you have coffee instead of a pot of tea within the price but we were charged more, not that that would stop us from returning. Nice place to visit of an afternoon/weekend and we enjoyed pottering around the small garden centre and few shops after lunch.

A lovely cafe with a warm welcoming atmosphere, 3 different seating areas, friendly staff, for just a coffee or wonderful lunch, dogs welcome in the cafe which is a bonus round here. Lovely garden centre wth knowledgable staff and small boutique shops to mooch around. Then take your dog (or children) for a walk in the grounds and play in the stream. A lovely place to take visitors.
Highly recommend.
