The outdoors range

At Calke Abbey, we love the great outdoors. That's why we stock a range of outdoor clothing so you can always be prepared for outdoor adventures – from fleeces and hats to walking socks and boots. This includes our range of Jack Wolfskin garments which are created from recycled plastic.

We also have plenty of useful accessories for dog walkers, campers and picnicking, including collapsible water bowls, camping tools and picnic hampers. If you like to take hot drinks on the go, we stock eco-friendly bamboo cups.

Gardening for all the seasons

The National Trust looks after hundreds of gardens so we understand that they need year-round attention to look their best. That’s why we stock bulbs, birdhouses, ornaments and useful gardening tools so you can keep your garden in shape all year.

Time for tea? 

It wouldn't be a National Trust gift shop without the biscuits, shortbreads and delectable chocolates! We stock a range of mouth-watering goodies, from preserves and jams to gingerbread men and sweeties – many of which are locally sourced. 

Don't miss the selection of coffees to wash down the biscuits – or if you're looking for something a little stronger, there's a special selection of wines and gins to tingle your tastebuds. 

The bookshop

At Calke we are proud to be home of our own second-hand bookshop, offering a variety of adventures for all bookworms. All books are kindly donated by our volunteers, staff and of course, you! The bookshop is located just opposite the shop, at the entrance to the restaurant.
