We caught up with the lovely team at Bradley Gardens, our Stockist of the Month for September. Read all about their range of shops located within an 18th century walled kitchen garden.
Tell us a little bit about your shop…
Bradley Gardens is an 18th century walled kitchen garden with shops behind the garden walls. We have a variety of shops such as Neptune Homestore, Ladies Accessories, Bradley’s Gift Shop and a Garden Store, along with The Glasshouse Café. It really is a hidden garden gem, offering a different kind of shopping experience.
What do you love about being a shop owner?
I love the experience we are able to offer, along with product lines that are curated for our customers.
Have you ever had any famous faces pop in?
We have had a few footballers come, and local actors and actresses, but the one person that people wouldn’t leave alone when he arrived was Declan Donnelly.
Three words to describe your shop…
Welcoming, hidden, luxury
Tell us a little bit about the place you are located…
We are in the Tyne Valley, 15 minutes outside of Newcastle Upon Tyne. It’s a lovely location past a beautiful lake and nestled in a hidden walled garden.
Your favourite time of year in the shop?
Spring is always a lovely time of the year.
Your favourite moment in the shop?
When six swans decided to pay us a visit.
