About Us

Whinfield Farm Nurseries is an independent nursery, owned and ran by husband and wife team, Andrew and Clare Robertson.  This family business, founded in 1989 has grown and now boasts a good range of alpines, shrubs and herbaceous plants.  Our annual bedding plants are grown on with care and an understanding of plants.  We prick out by hand and all of our plants are potted out by hand.

Open six days a week, from March to the end of October each year we welcome visitors to our independent family owned nurseries.  Visit our tearoom , established 3 years ago and set amidst the seclusion of our nurseries and enjoy a cup of Heavenly Coffee or Yorkshire tea.  Sample an award winning Beckleberry’s Ice Cream.  Our tea room is open in season from 10am-4pm serving light refreshments, sandwiches, paninis, bacon sandwiches, scones, cream teas and delicious home made cakes.


We have plentiful car parking with easy access to the nursery and tea room.  Situated opposite the long distance footpath of the Teesdale Way, use your visit to our nursery to discover the beautiful walks alongside the river Tees taking you close to the North Yorkshire and Richmondshire border.

We look forward to welcoming you to Whinfield Farm Nurseries.
