Complete your trip to Beningbrough with a visit to the stables shop, filled with gifts and treats inspired by special places. Your support in the shop helps to conserve and protect these places, like Beningbrough, for future generations.

Donate your books to help support Beningbrough

In the hall the historic library is now home to the secondhand book room. It's a great space to have a minute relaxing or selecting something new for your bookcase. The views down the avenue are worth popping in for alone and any money made contributes to the care of Beningbrough.

" Reading is a conversation. All books talk. But a good book listens as well."
- Mark Haddon

All donations of previously loved books are greatly appreciated to keep it stocked up. So when you're visiting bring any books you have finished with or if you're having a clear out, give us a call to arrange a good time to drop them in if you have more than a bag or box. 


A little about the shop...

For food lovers

There’s a tempting selection of honey, jams, chutneys, wines and beers. Pick up a beer from local, award-winning microbrewery Treboom or wine from Lyme Bay Winery, whose products have won Great Taste Awards.

For garden lovers

The stables offers an extensive range of gardening delights from plants to garden ornaments and tools. Our range of seasonal plants can be purchased as a reminder of your visit or choose a wildlife sculpture made from recycled steel oil drums. Everything you need to enjoy your garden is on offer from quality furniture to rest on and gloves to protect your hands when you're busy. Availability of the plants varies depending on the time of year you visit.

For the home lover

Discover the new Valleys to Headlands collection, inspired by wildflower trails and wooded valleys that lead to the coast, to create a collection bursting with spring colour. The striking hero prints feature the carpets of wildflowers on the banks of Glendurgan Garden in Cornwall and Watersmeet in Devon.

For locally sourced products, take a look at the range of bowls by Yorkshire potter, Chris Boddy.

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 ball for a game on the south lawn.

And for those unexpected emergencies...

We've stocked the shop with useful items you may have left at home or suddenly need such as rain ponchos, suncream and first aid kits.

Home Farm 

The family at Home Farm have been tenant farmers on the Beningbrough estate for many years. You'll see their Aberdeen Angus roaming in the parkland in the summer months. They sell the beef in the farm shop plus other fruit, vegetables and a selection of local produce.
Find them on the exit road as you leave following your visit or just a short walk using the start of the parkland path from the bottom right of the car park.
