Shopping at Stowe

Whether you're looking for the perfect gift, a memento of your visit or a treat for yourself, we’re sure you will find something here. We support local suppliers by showcasing a large range of gift cards, books, local crafts and produce, including confectionery, cider and fragrances for body and home. Every purchase contributes directly to the work being undertaken at Stowe.

Made locally

On the last Sunday of every month we host our Meet the Maker series in our shop. One of our local suppliers will join us to demonstrate their unique skills and speak about their products, which are available in our shop.

Our local suppliers include:

  • Brackley-based Chris Pendleton often comes to Stowe for inspiration for his beautiful bird paintings and we stock special editions of his work

  • Andrew Macdermott, from Milton Keynes, is a potter who has an exclusive 'New Inn' bowl available at Stowe to celebrate New Inn's tricentenary

  • The Country Set, purveyors of  feathered accessories and other goodies, will be at meet the makers in August
