A little about the shop...
For food lovers
There’s a tempting selection of honey and jams as well as chutneys and preserves with seasonal flavours. Pick up some delicious savoury biscuits too. The biscuit range has been updated with gluten free options. We've also introduced some healthier snacks but there's lots of tantalising treats as well.
For garden lovers
The stables offers an extensive range of gardening delights from plants to garden ornaments and tools. Seasonal plants can be purchased as a reminder of your visit and we have a new selection of bulbs if you're preparing for next spring. Find terracotta pots varying in size and a range of bird feeders to help the wildlife through the winter months.
For the home lover
Discover the new Natural World collection, inspired by nature throughout the centuries. The Felbrigg Herbarium print which you'll find on the scarves and ceramics was painted from the pressed plants in the herbarium at Felbrigg Hall in Norfolk. There's also a new range of environmentally friendly cleaning products.
For those who love to accessorise
As well as the Felbrigg Herbarium print, find scarves with the Blickling Botanical designs, inspired by botanical illustrations of the 16th-century botanist Fabio Colonna. Included in the shop's local range, are woven bags made from recycled cloth and handfinished by Yorkshire-based mother and daughter design team, Rag Makers.
For dog lovers
There's something for everyone in the shop, even for your four-legged friends you'll find doggie accessories and treats.
For pocket money
There is a section for children with pocket money treats, souvenirs of the day to take home plus outdoor and vintage games as well as a range of colourful books. Grab a bug hunting kit and complete one of your '50 things to do before you're 11 3/4' challenges, or a woodland stamper set and twig pen as a birthday present for an imminent children's party.
