Super Stockist – Sherborne Village Shop & Tea Rooms

Our latest Super Stockist is our very own local shop in Sherborne. Like our farm, the National Trust owns the village shop and many of the cottages in Sherborne.  Village shop tenants Yvonne and Sarah reopened the shop in 2010 after the Post Office closed its doors in 2008 when the postmistress retired. Prior to securing tenancy of the shop Yvonne and Sarah were required to submit a business plan to the National Trust and pass an interview.

Since opening in May 2010 the ladies have provided a great service both to the local residents and the many visitors who come to walk in the beautiful countryside around Sherborne. Recently they were rewarded for their all their effort and commitment to providing the community and visitors with top quality food and refreshments including our very own Totally Fruity juices and Chilly Billy iced lollies. They were nominated for one of the prestigious Cotswold Life Food and Drink Awards for the Best Independent Retailer, which they subsequently won. The fought off stiff competition in the process and the whole village came down to share the success by toasting Yvonne and Sarah with champagne.

So if you are ever visiting or indeed staying in the Cotswolds then we can thoroughly recommend a visit to the shop. The menu includes a range of delicious beverages as well as snacks and they are licensed to sell alcohol with the food serve.
