Discover the stables shop and second hand bookshop

Pick up a tasty treat to take home

Our shop has a range of tempting seasonal and locally-sourced treats. And even better, all profits go back into the conservation of this special place.

We’re excited to be able to reopen our shop doors from 12th April, 11am - 5.30pm, whether you’re after some retail therapy, a last-minute gift or to stock up on greetings cards and your favourite jam, you’ll find it in the stables shop. Every penny you spend goes back into looking after this special place.

We recommend pre-booking your ticket to visit Hardwick on busier days.

Staying safe in the shop

The safety of staff, volunteers and visitors is our priority; therefore, we've introduced social distancing measures including:
• Where necessary, we will limit the flow of people coming into our shop to ensure it doesn’t get too busy.
• Hand sanitiser is available for customers and colleagues to use and we’re sanitising shopping baskets between use.
• We've installed a protective screen at the till point.
• In line with government guidance, you’re required to wear a face covering in most enclosed spaces unless exempt. Please bring one with you and if you’ve forgotten to bring a face covering, we do have some available for purchase.
• Our staff and signs will reinforce these safety measures.

Get in the garden

Spring has truly sprung in the Hardwick gardens, and we’ve just stocked up on lots of beautiful plants for your garden too. Working with the Hardwick gardeners, who have grown some of the plants available for sale, we’ve got a wide range of plants available to add some colour to your outside spaces.

Time for a spring clean

If you’re ready to dust away the cobwebs and have a good spring clean, we’ve got the National Trust cleaning range to help you with the task. Our exclusive laundry and household cleaning range is created by Greenscents, a family run business who produce small batches of their products in Somerset, using Exmore water and Organic Fairtrade essential oils.
