About Us

Dobbies Carlisle is easily accessible from the A595 and is just a few minutes drive from the popular small village of Dalston. There are even views of the Lake District peaks from the restaurant and outside plant area.

Naturally, being Dobbies, there’s a fantastic range of plants, garden equipment and a font of gardening knowledge on tap from our expert staff. 
It’s also great for kids, with a pets and aquatics department and even a petting zoo featuring lamas, sheep, ducks, rabbits, chickens, goats & baby kids.

At Dobbies, we're also proud to work with a variety of different partners to bring our customers as much choice as possible. Check out our store's partners below.

*Please note that our Restaurant closes at 17:30 Mon – Fri and at 16:30 every Sunday.
