Retail therapy at Uppark this Christmas
This article was about our Christmas activities at Uppark in 2017. We’ll be updating this with 2018 event information later on in the year. Please go to our main Uppark homepage to find out what we're doing this year.
Formally the old laundry, our shop has plenty of great gifts, exclusive National Trust ranges, and a wonderful selection of local products.
We have a great range of festive gifts and treats available this year. Get your home ready for Christmas with our selection of baubles and tealight holders - we've got decorations to suit all tastes.
Still need to send off those all-important Christmas cards? We've got a lovely range of cards available inspired by our places and the countryside around us.
Looking for something unique for a loved one? Our exclusive National Trust Bohemian range was inspired by the shapes and geometric patterns on the textiles and ceramics found at Monk's House in East Sussex.
Local to us
We’ve got some delicious local products on sale here at Uppark. Buy and take home some local cider brewed by The Garden Cider Company who create hand crafted premium ciders sourced entirely from local, donated garden apples. Each year over 4000 local households give the team at The Garden Cider Company thier spare garden fruit and in return receive a share of the cider made back for free.
Try before you buy - visit us at weekends throughout December to sample some of the Bowman Ales we have on offer in the shop. Tastings will be in the beer cellar in the house.
Just in time for Christmas, we have a tempting range of jams and chutneys available from local producer Auntie Vals which started out at Billingshurst WI market and has grown from strength to strength.
Or take home some freshly stoneground flour from our friends at Winchester City Mill to help you along with your festive bakes. Every bag of flour you buy helps towards the fundraising efforts of the team at the Mill to keep it open for everyone to enjoy.
Gifts for kids
We’ve got lots of great gifts for children too, including soft toy animals. Choose from ‘wild’ animals like foxes and hedgehogs, or piglets and puppies. They all come with a swing tag featuring fascinating facts about each animal.
Give something back
