The shop

You’ll find everything you need for a day at the beach in our shop, along with gifts, home accessories, rugs, decorative items and a great range of cards. Our current range is inspired by Britain’s fast-disappearing grasslands. When you shop with us you help protect survivors like Old Nick’s Ground near Old Harry in Studland and Spyway in Purbeck.
