Memento to go?
Located within the Laundry tea-room, the Stoneywell shop is open daily from opening and closes half an hour before the property. A growing range of products are available so why not spoil yourself or a friend.
There are lots of nostalgic mementos to take home after your visit. Postcards and note cards with stunning photographs of the cottage and the garden, taken by our volunteer team, are also on offer and provide a lovely souvenir of your time at Stoneywell. Other products with images of the property include magnets and a print of the cottage.
Other items in the shop this season include jigsaw puzzles and children’s gifts. You can also find a selection of rugs, jams and preserves, and of course Stoneywell’s very own guidebook.
In the stable yard, look out for when we have a range of herbaceous and perennial plants from the Hairy Pot Plant Company, including plants found in the gardens, so take a piece of Stoneywell home with you. The pots themselves are made from the fibres of organically grown coconut husks, meaning they can be planted directly with the pot and reduces waste in an environmentally friendly way. Each pot is handmade near to the coconut farms in Sri Lanka, providing fair trade employment to the local community, before being shipped directly to the UK where the plants are added.
Also found in the stables are some beautiful Zimbolic duck and robin sculptures, made from recycled metal materials by artists in Zimbabwe and Kenya.
Run by our volunteers, our second hand bookshop can now be found in a snug corner of the stables. Taking donations from volunteers, the books are for sale with a suggested donation. All the money raised goes towards looking after this special place; and this year the money raised is going towards a conservation project in the house to improve the environmental condition to protect the collection from the damp.
