The Gift Shop
Our Gift Shop area is located in the big barn alongside our coffee shop.
The barn is large, airy and tables are well spaced out.
The Gift & Coffee Shop is open throughout our daytime events.
Tables are allocated for pre-bookable events.
Any spare tables are subject to availability.
Our Gift Shop area will be open even if the Coffee Shop area is full.
Especially chosen products
We are proud to offer a selection of products sourced from local supplies. From cards and stationery to honey and gin; many of our local range is provided by local people whom we have met over the years at events and formed long term friendships with. There's always a story behind the product!
Other items we have carefully selected from artisans within the UK. We know their heritage and story with ethical design and production. We respect the buying process to ensure limited journey from supplier to farm.
Just Jules Jewellery
Jules has been a long term friend of the Bailey family for many years. Often standing side by side at events;Jules and Lynn would discuss their thoughts and plans for the future with synergy and after a couple of adhoc pop up shops (thanks to covid) - the dream of a lifestyle shop at the farm came into fruition.
With a similar eye and ethos; Jules and Lynn spend much time seeking and meeting local suppliers and titivating displays (or faffing as Richard likes to call it) to ensure the shop has fabulous ranges and interesting products for our customers to enjoy.
Gift vouchers may be purchased at the Gift Shop Counter and used for both the Gift & Coffee Shop and also when booking events in person at the Gift Shop Counter.

The (more detailed) Story
Since 2016 we have had planning permission on our BIG BARN to convert it into a coffee shop and shop. Works have taken place externally over the years and plans were in place to finish converting the interiors in October 2020 when our wedding season would have ended. Then Covid arrived. So the big plans were put on hold.
In the absence of Christmas events, Lynn & Jules (Just Jules Jewellery) decided to 'Pop up' a shop in one of our smaller meeting rooms - formally a Bull Pen. Stocked with ranges from local businesses who also couldn't attend any events; 'The Shop that saved Christmas' (as it was proudly named by one of our dedicated customers) proved a massive hit allowing local people to shop locally, safely and to support local businesses.
About The Gift & Coffee Shop
Following the success of the Christmas pop up shop, but still not in a position to convert our BIG BARN; Lynn and Jules decided to take the shopping experience to the next level and moved diagonally towards the dream and into one of the slightly bigger barns at the farm which used to be a Flour Mill.
The Lifestyle Barn offers an extensive range featuring local creatives and a wider selection of products sourced within the UK by independent businesses. The ranges offer ambient food & drink, sustainable gifting, handmade accessories, lifestyle collections and a capsule clothing range.
The farm is also open for woodland walks with takeaway drinks and an outdoor seating area has been created for visitors to relax and enjoy the environment in beautiful surroundings. Our aim for The Lifestyle Barn is to establish a friendly shopping environment, accessible to the local community which supports local businesses.
We hope to start internal works on our BIG BARN later in the year. In the interim we we will continue with a pop up coffee shop and honour weddings due to take place this year. We hope that by the winter the BIG BARN will have heating so we may continue our offer to visitors all year round.
