Joyce and Alison welcome you to Chipchase Castle Nursery.


You will find us situated in the beautiful Northumberland countryside, enclosed in a Victorian walled garden adjacent to the grounds of the Castle.

Visitors are very welcome to come and see us and view our labelled borders at leisure, which are packed with plants of interest to garden enthusiasts and novices!

We offer a diverse selection of hardy perennial plants, many of them rare or unusual. All of the plants on offer have been propagated by us at the nursery. Specialist plants include hardy geraniums, geums, and eryngiums.

We are more than happy to give help and advice on plant choices and offer a free "design a border" service to customers purchasing plants from the nursery. For those needing more comprehensive assistance our professional garden design facility is also available, please contact us for details.


We were delighted to be named as one of the Top 25 Great Nurseries by the Daily Telegraph in October 2008. See article

We hope to see you in the 2014 season!


Please Note



The nursery can be accessed via the A6079 road through Barrasford which runs along the eastern side of the North Tyne.

From the A69 heading north on the A6079 go through the villages of Acomb and Wall. At the crossroads of the A6079  and the B6320 take the A6079 north, heading towards Chollerton. Just before the church at Chollerton take the left turn towards Barrasford. Continue along this road and the nursery is signposted - just past the castle on the left.

If you have any queries about this please get in touch, either phone or e-mail, we are more than happy to provide detailed directions for you.




This  year we have taken on a new role at Chipchase and are delighted to be carrying out redevelopment and gardening work for the Chipchase Castle gardens which are adjacent to our nursery.


This is an exciting project for us and involves the redesign and improvement of various parts of the gardens however it is inevitably taking up a great deal of our time!!


We are therefore actively seeking someone to take over the reins at the nursery, and if there is anyone out there who is interested, please feel free to give us a call and we are happy to provide details.
