Shopping in the Cotswolds

Discover Cotswolds independent retailers

One of the great pleasures of the Cotswolds is to discover independent retailers spread over dozens of market towns and villages. All very refreshing after bland city high streets. Here are just a few of our favourites. You’re bound to find your own as you explore the Cotswold hills.

THE RSC GIFT SHOP
Stratford-upon-Avon

Great for books of course, but also posters and retro souvenirs. On the lighter side there are some terrible puns on products: anyone for a 2B (or not to be?) pencil?

DAYLESFORD SHOP
Kingham

A farm shop, but maybe like no other. The prices can be eye-watering, but the quality is high. The large site combines spa, clothes shop, café, garden and food shop – a good celeb spotting location.

THE YELLOW HAT TRIBE
Nether Westcote

Local star, Irene Tyack works out of an ostrich farm between Burford and Stow. Her quirky concept of the 'Yellow Hat Tribe' now has followers around the world.

ROBERT WELCH
Chipping Campden

Beautifully designed cutlery, kitchen and homeware in a setting that seems half art gallery, half shop.

COTSWOLD CHEESE COMPANY
Moreton-in-Marsh

With over 100 cheeses in the Cotswolds, this is a highly recommended cheese emporium.

HIGHGROVE SHOP
Tetbury

The emphasis is on products that support local communities and economies. Whisky and fudge are amongst the best sellers, branded with the Prince of Wales Feathers.

DOMESTIC SCIENCE
Tetbury and Nailsworth

Cool antiques and design items aplenty.

MANFRED SCHOTTEN ANTIQUES
Burford

Sporting antiques are the speciality here; posters, antique golf items and other sporting ephemera are beautifully displayed.

WOEFULDANE ORGANIC DAIRY
Minchinhampton

A lovely village – and this brilliant little dairy and food shop is highly recommended – especially as the area is scenically spectacular.

STROUD FARMERS' MARKET
Minchinhampton

Saturday mornings see Stroud bustling with one of Britain's most colourful food markets. Cafés and vintage shops complete the picture.

THE LETTER PRESS
Cirencester

An inspiring shop dealing with stationery and bespoke printing. Exceptional.

VINTAGE TO VOGUE
Bath

Great shop stocking, well, vintage to vogue clothing.
