2020 has thrown a few spanners in works (to say the least) that is why for the whole month of August we want to celebrate our amazing local businesses…
Each week we will be giving a #SupportLocal salute to a bunch of brill businesses, whilst simultaneously giving you some top tips and ideas of places and things to do whilst visiting us in the Cotswolds.
For a fragrance filled getaway venture to The Cotswold Perfumery and spend a day in the lab creating your own unique signature scent. After all, what is better memento of your trip than a personalised perfume?
The Owner, John, is one of only six independent perfumers in the UK (wow, right!?), and his fragrances are worn by perfume enthusiasts around the world – including Queen Lizzie herself.
At the moment, the perfumery are still operating workshops and courses, but with smaller group sizes. To find out more and to book please click here.
Let the fun be-gin with a visit to our pals at the Cotswolds Distillery.
Just a short drive from the Estate, there is gin then there is Cotswolds Distillery Gin. What is more, they have just released a brand new Cotswolds Limoncello, filled to the brim with zesty lemons it makes the perfect summer sippin’! We’re officially obsessed.
If you’re planning to make a trip in the next couple of months, their tours are back up and running (yippee) so you can see first hand how the distillery works and get your hands on bundles upon bundles of booze. However, for now their masterclasses are still on pause, but hey we just say that’s an excuse for a second trip…
Little Soap Company
These guys are soap-er and their HQ is based a stone throw away from the Estate.
Down in the picturesque village of Broadway, Emma and her team run the Little Soap School where you can swat up on the sudsy know-how and create your own bars of bubbles.
We absolutely love their new Eco Warrior Shampoo, it smells superb and helps save the planet, Emma you’re a woman after our own hearts.
The Cotswold Chocolate Company
Our buddies at The Cotswolds Chocolate Company really know how to raise the…bar… when it comes to making artisan chocolate.
Strolling down Broadway high street you will probably smell the delicious aromas before you see their quaint shop nestled away in the heart of the village. To filling your boots with indulgent, homemade chocolates to treating your loved ones to sweet, sweet souvenirs The Cotswold Chocolate Company is a must when staying on the Estate.
Owners, Tony and Heidi have also just opened another little shop in Stow on the Wold, where you might even find them making chocolates in their on-site kitchen. If you have a sweet tooth beware, their scrummy treats are highly delicious and oh-so moreish.
