Shopping at Mottistone Gardens
Located in an ancient Tudor barn, our shop at Mottistone Gardens is the perfect place to find that special gift. Stocked with an array of National Trust products and plants, there’s everything you might need either during your visit, for exploring further or just as a reminder of your day.
Spoilt for choice
Food, gifts, homeware, plants, books……there’s not much that we don’t have in our shop. Cards and calendars line the walls, and sales even spill out into the gardens where you’ll find our plants and second-hand books.
For special gifts, soft scarfs, aromatic candles, and pretty bags always make beautiful presents. Sweet tooths, meanwhile, can indulge in our award winning jams, chutneys and curds, as well as luxury biscuits and confectionary.
Our stock changes seasonally to reflect the shifting landscape and time of year. Our items are inspired by the special places that we look after and designs are influenced by the natural environment. This summer our designers have been inspired by a hunt for adventure. The "Valleys to Headlands" collection appreciates the slowed down approach to living and embraces the gradual movements of nature, from rock formations formed over millions of years, to the seasonal growth of wildlflowers and the shifting shores of the coastline.
Something for inside and out
Create a heritage inspired home with warm throws and comfy cushions, or fill your kitchen with our quirkily designed ceramics and accessories. Being part of the gardens, our shop has plenty for those inspired by their visit. You can grow your own with our plant kits, and tidy your garden with a range of tools and essentials.
There are many footpaths across the wider Mottistone Estate with spectacular sea views from the downs above the gardens. Maps and walking guides will help you navigate them, or for a relaxing stroll, pick-up a comfy rug and have a picnic along the way.
Young explorers to Mottistone will find plenty of ways to make even more of their day. We’ve games to play and books to read, as well as lots of extras to help you tick off some of your 50 things challenges.
Plant a piece of Mottistone
Whether you're a keen gardener or just enjoy pottering around, don't forget to have a look at the plant sales area by the entrance to the tea garden. Most of the plants on sale are propagated at Mottistone, in peat-free compost, by our gardening team. The selection changes seasonally to reflect what’s growing in the garden at the time, and means that you really can take a little bit of Mottistone home with you.
