Meylor’s Reasons to Visit Daylesford, Kingham, Gloucestershire

I recently went to Daylesford with an art friend, the focus of our visit was for inspiration! The location, and the shop itself is filled with so many beautiful items. The Daylesford shop is dedicated to horticulture which is inspired by their organic farmland and beautiful flora. Why would you visit anywhere else for floral inspiration?

Having loved my visit, I thought I would highlight the best bits.

Workshops

Daylesford always have a host of workshops and courses on throughout each month. Keeping everyone busy, mainly in a variety of floristry activities. With their team of experienced expert florists, in no time you will be putting together place settings, hand tied bouquets and filling your homes with many vase arrangements. Not only for us adults, but there are a number of workshops put on for kids too! Children’s Hedgerow Floristry, to name one. Why not get a date in the diary, take a friend. Here’s one I would like to book Beginners Floristry

‘The Old Spot’ - Pizza Bar

Daylesford has two restaurants; the Old Spot & The Trough Restaurant. The Old spot has a wood fire oven, and the pizza’s are devine, that is saying something when I tend to avoid pizza. We had the ‘mozzarella, tomato, home-made pesto, salami’ - worth a try. Drinks wise, you will be far from disappointed as they have a very broad health conscious selection. From tumeric & ginger shots to cold press juices. For me - a Matcha latte; always a favourite choice. Feeling for something alcoholic; why not try the Daylesford Prosecco? I am reserving this tasting for my next visit.

Shopping - Homewares

If linens and modern ceramics are your thing, the Daylesford home shop is for you. They have a lot of tantalising products, geared up to fill your homes with the Daylesford home aesthetic. 

If the Daylesford own brand doesn’t appeal to you, they have a variety of other branded goods on offer. From home fragrances to stationery. Meylor greeting cards have also been bought by Daylesford. 

Not only do they have a home & garden shopping area. There is also a section specifically for second hand home accessories, often with a vintage antique heritage. This is definitely worth a wander around, if you like a nod to nostalgia and looking for home inspiration.
