It takes a while to get your head around the fact that you are in the heart of the Gloucestershire countryside when you step inside the complex of buildings that make up Dayelsford's Farmshop and Barn. It's not just the well-heeled London patrons emerging from their Cotswold bolt holes but also the exquisitely manicured grounds and impeccably designed interiors that make you think Sloane Square rather than rolling English countryside. Pristine and bountiful is the general aura; for those not able to make the pilgrimage, Daylesford also has a newly expanded Online Shop.
