Swiss Cottage is an Allotment Association just off Ascot Drive in Derby. The site has a well stocked shop with car park that sells everything from seeds to specialist fertilisers. The site covers 4.8 acres and accommodates just over 60 plots. Water is available through the summer months from taps dotted around the site. This site was established in the 1950s.
The Allotments are situated at the end of Sandown Road tucked between Travis Perkins (now empty) and Ethiprint Ltd. Each plot holder is issued with a key (upon receipt of a deposit) as Swiss Cottage has secured access at all times outside of the shop hours.
Members of the public and plot holders from other allotments are more than welcome to join with an annual membership fee of £1.20.
Update - 23rd February 2018 - Serious about having your own allotment plot? Call into the shop during opening hours and we can show you the plots available.
The Trading post
At Swiss Cottage we have ample car parking space and staff on hand to give advice and to load your car up with whatever you have purchased. So you don't need to worry about lifting heavy bags to your vehicle.
If you call in at the right time, you may even be offered a hot drink........
Please support your local community by shopping at the Swiss Cottage Trading Post!!!.....
Our prices are very competitive and pride ourselves by offering our customers a better service than the local DIY stores. We work hard to offer better value for money and a friendly service. For example, our growbags may not be 99p but are 3 times the depth as those at the 'cheaper stores', so £2.99 offers unbeatable value for money and you get exceptionally better tomatoes and cucumbers...
