Visiting our pop-up shop? Make a day of it! Here’s our guide to the dreamiest day out in the Cotswolds…
Stay: The Bull Inn
This charming pub hotel has 8 cosy rooms all designed by Willow Crossley (florist extraordinaire and also our partner, along with cashmere designer Alex Gore Browne, in the pop-up!). Enjoy the hearty cottage pie and bottle of red by the roaring log fire, before snuggling into bed upstairs.
Wander around: Blenheim Palace
Pick your jaw up off the floor as you wander the utterly delightful grounds and rooms of Blenheim Palace. The palace is where Winston Churchill grew up, and honestly, one of the most ornate, impressive stately homes in the country.
Browse & Shop: Sharland England pop-up
Just down the road from Blenheim, come and find us in picturesque Woodstock, on the corner of their cobbled town square. We are selling all our products, from rattan, plates and tablecloths to tumblers and some very special antiques. You’ll also find goods from our dear friends Willow Crossley and Alex Gore Browne.
See you at 14 Marketplace Woodstock between 10 am and 6 pm, September 26-30th!
Lunch: Daylesford Organic
Cakes, coffee and all sorts of delicious homemade food: Daylesford Organic is just a beautiful farmhouse setting for lunch. Sit by the firepit outside if it’s sunny, and my tip? The quiche followed by a slice of cherry bakewell!
Dessert: Alfonso Gelateria
Alex Gore Browne says this is the best gelato outside of Italy! My personal favourite flavour, is tiramisu.
Books & Gifts: Jaffe & Neale
It’s that beautiful Autumnal time of year when watching Meg Ryan movies and browsing bookshops is about as delightful as an afternoon can get. Add (another?) slice of homemade cake from the in-store cafe, fill your boots with novels old and new, and you’re about ready to head home…
