Every so often you stumble across somewhere special, Daylesford Barns, just south of Stow-on-the-Wold, in England’s glorious Cotswold countryside is one such place. What was once a rambling array of farm buildlngs is now the home of the most incredible collection of ‘life style heaven’, set within the warm, golden Cotswold stone walls under rustic lofted timbers, renovated to perfection! Firstly a Deli full of scrumptious produce from the adjoining organic farm.
Homemade cakes from the bakery
Preserves and sauces to assist in your culinary creativity!
Organic, locally produced cheeses
Free range eggs, freshly collected and boxed from the farm.
and all the ingredients to make fresh bread if the bakery at Daylesford inspires you!
The understated yet elegant home shop sits in the rafters above the Deli
Organic candles to create that soft, glowing, fragrant, evening ambience
and beside the adjoining cafe is a wonderful cookery school!
Across another one of the stunning courtyards….
Is the Flower and Garden shop, selling an abundance of herbs and perennials,
with summertime sprays and planted baskets inside.
There is an entire barn dedicated to clothes you can barely afford but love to browse through………… stylishly understated enticing the plastic from your wallet!
and beyond these gates:
is the Spa, gloriously set up in what was presumably the old hay barn, pure, indulgent bliss!!
You can stay here too in one of the cottages, or amble along to their little sister, the ‘Wild Rabbit‘ in neighboring Kingham, what’s not to love!!?

Who’s coming with me when I return?!
