About Us

Welcome to UpCountry!

We’re a local, independent garden centre group based in Scaynes Hill, West Sussex and more recently also in Stone Cross over in East Sussex. Both our garden centres are nestled in the beautiful Sussex countryside, providing the perfect place to stop by and browse our homegrown plants, local produce, animal feeds and much more! Here at UpCountry we pride ourselves on offering a unique garden shopping experience for our customers, our family and pet friendly stores offer something fascinating for everyone, whether it’s exploring our London bus at our Scaynes Hill branch, or meeting Timmy the cat at Stone Cross!

Our friendly and helpful staff are passionate about all things UpCountry and are always on hand to offer their huge wealth of gardening knowledge.

Our homegrown plants will give your garden a splash of local colour. We sell a wide variety of plants, including bedding plants, trees, bulbs and seeds. Alongside these, we offer everything you need to make your garden the best it can be. This can be anything from paving slabs and terracotta pots, to compost and plant supplements. We want to work with you in creating your dream garden. 

Bring your furry friends along to browse our large pet section, which offers a wide selection of toys, treats, feeds and accessories. If you have poultry, goats and horses we also have most feeds in stock too. If you’re a horse lover then Scaynes Hill is the place for you, with Equine Superstore being located on site selling all things equine; footwear, toys, rugs, equipment and more!

When you have shopped to your heart's content, you can head to the Bakehouse Kitchen. Our delightful cafe that serves up some of the best brunch in Sussex. Both cafes provide a comfortable spot to rest your feet and offer everything, from an early breakfast to a hearty burger or even a quaint afternoon tea. The cafe prides itself in producing great quality meals and an even greater taste!



“Excellent tea and coffee as usual, served exactly as requested. Delicious hot sausage roll today, too – I’ll definitely have one of those again! Plenty of space and friendly, attentive staff make this a pleasant cafe destination. Lots of tables outside to catch the sun if you want, too. A good selection of reasonably-priced plants and many other interesting bits and bobs for the garden guarantee a return visit,even though not a local place for us. Looking forward to the next visit.” – Heather, 25/03/17
