Filming at Daisy Nook - again!

We've been filming at Daisy Nook for Channel 4's 'How To Sell Your Home'.  The home owners were being filmed looking for ideas to transform their garden - they liked what we had so much that they actually bought everything from us too!  that's what we call a result.  The show airs in the UK in January.

Best of British Weekend

Our Best of British Weekend at Daisy Nook was a big hit and raised over £650 for Help For Heroes which supports our servicemen and women.
