Cranborne Estate relaunches Cranborne Garden Centre

The Estate, owned by Viscount Cranborne, has announced a new partnership for the running of Cranborne Garden Centre.

The garden centre, in Wimborne, Dorset, is now under new management and re-opened for business.

Claire Whitehead and John Fellows have taken over the business this November as a going concern. They have invested, with the estate, in re-vamping the business and buildings with a re-launched garden centre being fully operational at Easter 2015.

The business will continue to be known as Cranborne Garden Centre.

Quinton Edwards marketed the centre, which has access through the walled garden planteria to the gardens of Cranborne Manor. 

The site has a 215 metre frontage to the road. The site boundaries extend to approximately 1.116 hectares (2.757 acres).

The site is leased with the Estate as landlords, and was previously run by a manager who left, prompting the re-leasing.
