Where to Find Us

Many have described us as a hidden gem, but how to find us needn't be a closely regarded secret! In fact, we're less than ten minutes' drive from the centre of Spalding, in south Lincolnshire. However, as many of our visitors come from much further afield, allow us to take you under our wing and point you in the right direction.

We are based within Baytree Garden Centre, which is located just off the A151 near Weston (between Spalding and Holbeach.) For instructions on how to find us once you arrive at the Garden Centre, refer to the section at the bottom of this page.

Via the A16

For most travelling from the north (Boston), west (Grantham/Sleaford) or south (Peterborough), we advise joining the A16 and follow the signs for Spalding.

On your approach to the roundabout near Springfields Outlet Shopping and Festival Gardens you should start to see brown signs leading to "Owl Centre" or "Baytree". Enter this roundabout and turn off by the McDonald's to join the A151 (Holbeach Road leading to High Road). 

Continue along the A151 for about 1 mile, following the brown signs if necessary, and go straight over the next roundabout past the Fun Farm on your left. Carry on over the next mini roundabout and then immediately turn left into Baytree Garden Centre.

Via the A17

These directions are applicable for those travelling from the east (King's Lynn), or those travelling from the north/west who opt to keep to the A17 after the Sutterton roundabout.


You should follow the signs for Spalding until you reach the roundabout on the site of the old Peppermint Junction (between Moulton Seas End and Holbeach). Exit onto the A151 and continue for about 1 mile until you reach another roundabout, taking the third exit.

Keep on this road for 3.5 miles, then turn left after the brown sign for Wimberley Hall Farm into Weston. After another mile, you should see Baytree Garden Centre on your right, with a brown sign pointing to the entrance.

Finding Us in Baytree Garden Centre

When you arrive, park in the car park to the left of the main entrance (shown below). You may have to queue before entering. Once inside, you should turn right and follow the one-way system until you reach a left turn for the Landscape (orange) line. You can also join the orange via the restaurant (accessed from the seasonal glasshouse.) Once you are outside, you may freely move towards our entrance. Note that once you have visited us, you must rejoin the Main Garden (blue) Line using the route indicated and follow this to the exit. 

IMPORTANT: If you miss the turn for the Landscape (orange) line, you will not be able to go back. Any questions or concerns, including the availability of facilities, should be directed to Baytree Garden Centre. You can contact their customer service desk on 01406 370 242.

The garden centre is operating its own independent one-way system. For more information on how this affects your visit, see our booking guidance.
