Trago Mills Newton Abbot

The already huge Trago Mills store and leisure park in Newton Abbot, Devon just got bigger with the completion of a new themed garden area to give customers ideas for their homes and gardens.

Trago Mills is a very popular place and a destination for tourists as well as local shoppers. The new garden areas include: a Devon thatched country cottage, a Cornish seaside garden, a classical garden complete with columns and grottoes, a low maintenance garden, an environmental garden, an Alpine pass, an Oriental garden and a railway cottage. In addition visitors can wander a canal street and a wildlife pond area.

The whole thing is very new and could do with some years of maturing so that plants start to fill their space. But it is already a fun place to visit.

Trago Mills has three stores and leisure parks in operation: the original Liskeard, Newton Abbot and Falmouth with a new site in Merthyr Tydfil in the planning stage.

The Newton Abbot leisure park already includes The Bickington Steam Railway and the Trago Mills Model Railway, one of the largest model railways in the UK.

Trago Mills was founded by Mike Robertson and is now run by his son, the somewhat controversial Bruce Robertson.
