National Trust Favourite Recipes: 80 Delicious Classics from our Cafés
By Clive Goudercourt and Rebecca Janaway
A British institution, the National Trust’s cafés are loved by the millions who visit its many and varied sites every year. For some, a stop at the café is a bonus; for others, it’s the main event. Either way, it promises delicious, wholesome food that feels like the best home cooking. The third cookbook to showcase the best recipes from the National Trust’s cafés, National Trust Favourite Recipes has 80 recipes for guaranteed crowdpleasers – hearty, healthy food that’s simple to prepare and big on taste. From chicken, leek and tarragon pie to rhubarb and ginger cheesecake, plus lots of veggie and vegan options, there’s also a focus on seasonality and sustainability.
The book is live on the online shop here: https://shop.nationaltrust.org.uk/national-trust-favourite-recipes.html

Toys, games & activities
Fantastic outdoor toys, quirky pocket money ideas, wooden toys, fun family games, educational toys, pretend play ideas and gorgeous plush animals looking for a new home – we’ve got playtime covered, however old you are.
Being outdoors in nature became important to many of us over lockdown. For families, the great outdoors became a natural playground. 50 Things to do Before you're 11 3/4 encourages these creative, educational and playful experiences. How high can you climb? What happens when you skim a stone on the pond? Our 50 Things range is designed to get children out and enjoying nature. They could record their experiences in a nature diary, find the way with a compass, discover the night sky through a telescope, or build the best hideout with the Den Building Kit. We have plenty for young naturalists too, from magnifying glasses to mini beast collecting pots.
Garden & Outdoor
Our outdoor range continues to flourish. Add colour to your garden with our seasonal plants, all grown in peat-free soil for your peace of mind.
Barrington Loines art exhibition
In 2019 the well-known landscape artist Barrington Loines approached the Trust with the idea to work with local National Trust properties in the Buckinghamshire / Berkshire area to create original artworks – Cliveden National Trust is his first collaboration.
Barrington has now put on two successful exhibitions at Cliveden, displaying his oil paintings of views around the Cliveden estate.
The Shop in the Walled Garden is selling the remaining original oil paintings as well as a selection of A4 prints and greetings cards of the original desings.
Weighbridge second-hand bookshop
The Weighbridge second-hand bookshop is now open daily from 10.30 am until 5pm. Come and delve into a treasure trove of books from children's literature to cookery, and from health to history. We are very happy to accept book donations again, especially good quality children’s books, however we kindly ask that you don't bring in more than two bags/boxes at a time.
When you shop at Cliveden, you keep history alive
Everything that you buy in our gift shop goes towards the National Trust's mission of looking after special places for everyone, for ever.
All our prints this season have been inspired by rivers, forming the beautiful and diverse Riverlands range. The National Trust has embarked on a Riverlands Project to ensure rivers and catchments are clean, healthy and rich in wildlife, while connecting people with these vital habitats to encourage sustainable long-term care of our waterways. The money raised in our shop will flow back into the project to fund this important work.
Cliveden's second-hand bookshop also achieves that aim, with the money from every sale going towards this year's fundraising project for the Water Garden.
