Christmas with Daylesford

Around our luxury B&B in the north Cotswolds are several exciting businesses that reflect the changing face of the beautiful Cotswolds. One of the most impressive organisations and one which we have previously written about is Daylesford Organic, home to one of the best farm shops in the world.
Daylesford is a great organisation with excellent organic products and truly beautiful branding and packaging. Recently, Daylesford has been extending one of their buildings by adding an additional section behind the main food hall.

The New Hall
The hall opened this week hosting the Christmas area and it is a lovely light airy […]

Daylesford Organic – The new Cotswolds

Over the past twenty years the Cotswolds has changed dramatically. The picture used to be one of thatched buildings with old ladies in white pinafores serving tea. The whole game changed and changed dramatically for the better when Daylesford Organic farm shop opened in 2002. Daylesford is a one of the “must visits” for guests at our Cotswolds B&B.
Daylesford had been farming organically for 35 years and the shop and restaurant were a natural extension to their great ethos. However I don’t think that anyone expected the shop to have the impact that it has had.

Shipston Shopping – The Cotswolds Tailor

Another great shop in Shipston-On-Stour is The Cotswold Tailor run by Alex Edwards. He opened in Shipston about a year ago after having great success in Woodstock.

Alex has impeccable style and stocks what I would describe as “modern country” with a great mix of styles for customers of all ages and dispositions.

Conveniently , there is a lovely ladies store Dice directly next door so, while the ladies are shopping, the men have a chance to pick something up themselves.
Beware though, many of our clients have entered the store and left carrying many packages!

Shipston Shopping – The Richard Harvey Collection

Shipston is home to some lovely unusual shops and The Richard Harvey Collection is one of the best examples.

Set in an old Baptist chapel, the furniture is beautifully displayed over two floors.

 The adjacent shop contains lovely decorative items and quirky gifts.
Many of the items in The Old Kiln House have been purchased from Richard and Louise and we love their sense of style.
Several of our guests have purchased quite a few items on their visits.
So if you need some inspiration, make sure to visit.
