Piecemeal Plants - our Location
Our nursery is located at the entrance to Whatton House Gardens, just off the A6 between Kegworth and Hathern in north-west Leicestershire. For sat nav users, the postcode is LE12 5BG. However, you are advised that a few sat navs direct drivers into Long Whatton village which is on the far side of the Whatton House estate, and the nursery can only be accessed from the car park at the front of the house.
From Junction 24 of the M1, take the A6 south towards Loughborough, through Kegworth and past The Otter restaurant on the left. Only a short distance along the dual carriageway, take care in turning right through a gap in the central reservation into the main drive up to Whatton House.
Alternatively, take the A6 north-west of Loughborough, through Hathern and continue through a set of traffic lights into a short length of dual carriageway. After about half a mile, turn left into the drive to Whatton House. Or from the A6006 from Melton Mowbray, pass through Rempstone and then turn right onto the A6 at the traffic lights just outside Hathern.
At the top of the drive, there is ample parking in front of the House. Following the signs on foot to the gardens, you will enter the nursery area.
