Promoting local independent businesses is one of my passions.  I have been fortunate to create websites and social media campaigns for several local businesses, the latest being the wonderful Whinfield Farm Nurseries.

I first met Andrew and Clare Robertson when my son, Isaac, worked a summer job in the tea room which the couple run alongside their plant nursery.

Being a keen gardener I enjoyed browsing the beautiful nurseries and made some great purchases for my garden.  Being a self-confessed greedy guts, the tea room provided me with an enjoyable opportunity to try the delicious award winning Beckleberry’s Ice Cream, heavenly coffee and simply scrummy cakes!

Working on this website gave me an opportunity to work with Andrew and Clare who are such lovely people.

The nurseries will open again for the season very soon, the Robertson generally open in March.  Theirs is a family run business.  They are lifelong gardeners.  The location of their business is superb, close to the Teesdale Way but tucked away, off the A67.

Parking is plentiful, access is good.  So this Spring come along and support this local business, pause a while with a cup of tea and a cake, and enjoy this little piece of rural Teesdale.
