December Flowers and Christmas Greetings from Downside Nurseries

Hello! We’re open from 9 to 5 seven days a week, including Saturday and Sunday, and look forward to welcoming you to the Nursery soon.

Sorry, but we are unable to offer a mail-order service.

You can take a virtual tour of our Nursery here…

Full-time staff are required to work as part of our team – an opportunity to work with a wide and interesting range of plant species.

Please note there is of necessity some compulsory overtime in the spring and a watering rota for summer weekends.

We are situated in the village of Westwood, Wiltshire. Located between Bath and Trowbridge.

Sat Nav: BA15 2DE – 143 Upper Westwood. If coming from the Bradford on Avon direction, we recommend you follow the B3109 rather than any ‘shortcuts’ through the lanes! Similarly if coming from the Bath direction, we recommend you follow the road through Freshford rather than the lanes through Iford or Sharpstone.

From Bradford-on-Avon: follow the brown signs off the B3109 (Bradford-on-Avon to Wingfield Road)

Downside Nursery Sign

From Trowbridge: Leaving Trowbridge on the road to Bradford on Avon, turn left onto Westwood Road. Head straight across at the Westwood crossroads and then follow the brown signs.

From Bath: Leave Bath on the A36 (Warminster Road). Go straight over the traffic lights at Viaduct/Limpley Stoke and climb the hill. At the top turn left through Freshford, following the road down all the way through, past The Inn at Freshford Pub and up the hill up to Westwood (you’ll see the signs for Iford on your right). Keep on this road until you see the Downside Nurseries ‘brown sign’ where you turn left. We are 150 yards up on the right.

See the note above under Sat Nav about avoiding the ‘shortcuts’ through the lanes!
