About Otter Garden Centre Ottery St Mary

Otter Garden Centre in Ottery St Mary was the very first Otter garden centre and was established in 1964 as Otter Nurseries. Easily accessed from the A30, this is the largest of our garden centres and many customers like to enjoy a full day out here, shopping our extensive range of products in all our departments and our renowned plants department. We recommend stopping in our popular restaurant where you can enjoy delicious home-made food. We support many local community activities, are long-term sponsors of the Ottery St Mary Food Festival.
