The Stableyard shop is open every day from 10.30am. Whether you're buying for yourself, a loved one or your wildlife neighbours, your support enables us to care for nature, beauty and history, for ever.

Gifts for them, treats for you

Create a space to enjoy with gifts or treats for yourself from our range of home and garden essentials and accessories.

Draw inspiration from a varied range of books on how to get started looking after the environment, beginning with small steps from our sustainable cleaning, home and kitchen ranges. Nurture nature with peat free plants, gardening books for beginners to enthusiasts, and wildflower seed cards and gift tags.

Prepare for the winter season with soft scarves, scented candles and delicious UK made seasonal food and drink. Wrap up long awaited gifts with beautiful recyclable wrapping paper and paper tape, and pair with our plastic free Christmas cards.

Hughenden's stories

Pick up a memento of your visit from the Hughenden collectables range. There are magnets and notebooks, pin badges and bags celebrating Queen Victoria’s favourite Prime Minister and the house he loved, along with special items linked to the manor's secret Second World War mapping operation.

Local producers

We have a dedicated local range featuring some of the region's best artisan producers, from jewellery and candles to ales and honey.

  • Malt The Brewery. Two handmade real ales stocked at Hughenden are brewed in Great Missenden, at the heart of the Chiltern Hills. Malt The Brewery uses the finest traditionally floor malted Maris Otter barley from the oldest working maltings in the UK.

  • Home County Candle Co. Owners Hannah and Oli created this luxury home fragrance brand in 2018.  Their unique home fragrance products feature beautifully scented candles and reed diffusers handmade in their workshop in Hertfordshire. The candles are produced from sustainable soy wax, which is biodegradable and vegan friendly. 

  • Posh Pebbles. Buckinghamshire designer Angela’s small family business specialises in one off pieces of gemstone jewellery. Find gifts or treats for yourself from this beautiful range of necklaces and earrings.

When you shop local you can support small businesses in Buckinghamshire and pick up unique, handcrafted items. 

Second-hand bookshop

Our second-hand bookshop, in the west wing of the manor, is a great place to pick up a new read. You’ll find fiction, autobiographies and a variety of specialist titles, from gardening and cooking to history and travel. 

If you have any good quality pre-loved books, preferably fiction, that you are able to donate please contact the office to arrange a drop off:

Keeping everyone safe

As Covid restrictions lift we are removing many of the restrictions that were in place at Hughenden, including the need to pre-book your visit and the one-way route around the gardens.

Safety remains our priority for our staff, volunteers and visitors, and so the following measures are in place in the shop and bookshop:

  • Hand sanitiser is available
  • Visitors are asked to wear a face covering inside
  • Protective screens are at the till point
  • For the second-hand bookshop an honesty box is available for cash donations or you can pay by card in the stableyard shop.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
