About the employer

Sunshine Daisy Nursery operates from a beautiful 12th century priory, later converted into a private dwelling in the rural hamlet of Andwell. The country farmhouse has a grand regency feel with two large, secure gardens and is surrounded by landscaped grounds and farmland; not to mention all the animals! We are in the heart of the countryside but only a stone’s throw from junction 5 of the M3 and just off the A30 connecting Basingstoke and Hook. The building is full of character and offers a real home from home feel; we have built on this by adding warm carpets, a big kitchen table next to the Aga and traditional, environmentally friendly wooden furniture and equipment.
