Take a memento home with you...
During your visit, make sure you take a look at the selection of goodies for sale in the Laundry tea-room and stable yard. There are a number products available, so why not spoil yourself.
There are lots of nostalgic mementos to take home after your visit. Postcards with stunning photographs of the cottage and the garden, taken by our volunteer team, are on offer and provide a lovely souvenir of your time at Stoneywell. Other products with images of the property include beautiful notecards and jigsaw puzzles.
You will also children’s gifts, a selection of rugs, jams and preserves, and of course Stoneywell’s very own guidebook.
Oher goodies include sweet treats, gifts and a great selection of books, including the National Trust Cookbook.
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 robin, wren and blue tit sculptures, made from recycled metal materials by artists in Zimbabwe and Kenya. As well as some cute cast iron mice!
We also have a second hand bookshop 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 helps us keep on caring for Stoneywell.
