Alongside shopping there are plenty of features to add to your day out. Visit our brand new Country Living Theatre for panel discussions and lifestyle tips from prominent figures and contributors to the magazine; try everything from block printing to chocolate making in our Craft & Create Rooms or be wowed by our glorious ‘glamping’ inspired garden- complete with vintage VW camper van. And if you're looking to relax, why not book lunch in the brand new Country Living Restaurant, or enjoy a glass of fizz in our champagne lounge.

So come along, enjoy a colourful day out that will lift your spirits after winter, meet our makers and pick up inspiring ideas for simple country style.
