The High Peak Garden Centre has been in business for nearly seventy years and is family run. They don't grow their own plants but buy them in from a variety of suppliers in the UK and some from further afield. The stock is everything you would expect from a medium sized garden centre and includes seasonal bedding plants, shrubs, climbers, roses, alpines, heathers, ornamental and fruit trees.
The plants area is fully accessible for wheelchair users with solid and wide paths. There is a small area which is covered but most of the plants outside are open t the elements. The plants look to be in excellent condition but we couldn't see any hardy plant guarantee which is common to many garden centres nowadays. Much of the large range of garden furniture is on display outside along side with lots of pots, planters and stonework.
Inside, they sell all the gardening accessories you might want including an attractive display of houseplants. They also sell gifts and cards.
One key attraction of this garden centre is that it's set in a small shopping area. The area is popular with walkers and climbers on a day out. The nearby shops include Hitch n Hike with everything for the climber and caver, the Bike Garage selling and hiring out mountain bikes (repairs as well). If you are particularly interested in any of the above we strongly suggest you phone before travelling far because the businesses do tend to coma and go without warning.
One drawback which needs to be mentioned is that they do not accept credit cards so remember to take along some cash with you, there are no local cash machines. The decor is very pleasant with real wooden tables and chairs.
A five star food hygiene rating is an achievement to be proud of and this was awarded to the Scarlett Rose Coffee Shop in January 2013 by High Peak Borough Council.
The Sheffield Star newspaper reported on the Scarlett Rose Coffee Shop in November 2013 regarding their ratings on a well known review site. The article ends up with the sentence "And Scarlett Rose Cafe is back to number 1!". That now appears to be out of date (as at April 2014 when we last checked) with the coffee shop currently being in position 5 for restaurants in Hope Valley (see here). We wish them every success in the search for that number one position again.
