We say

Place to eat? Tick. Place to stay? Tick. Place to visit? Tick. Place to shop? Tick. The Organic Farm Shop is far more than just a shop. Whether you fancy a weekend woodworking workshop (or cheesemaking, or block print textiles, etc), a fabulous bolt-hole for a family weekend, or just a darn good cup of coffee, you must stop here. This really is a must-see Cotswold venue. In fact, you could make Abbey Home Farm your whole weekend away and you wouldn't need to go anywhere else. But to focus on the shop, everything's organic (bar the honey), and the owners claim that a weekly shop here can be up to 20 per cent lower than in supermarkets. They have skincare products, textiles, gifts and more, and much of what's for sale comes direct from the farm. It's proper old-fashioned shopping the way our grannies would have done, and you're sure to enjoy the experience. Note: Use the map on this page to find the shop. Satnav will take you up a fast road which does not lead directly to the shop's entrance and which is dangerous to turn around on:

Peaceful retreat for groups! ★★★★☆

The Organic Farm have a lovely little farm shop, with fresh meat, vegetables and dairy from the farm as well as Fairtrade gifts. They also have camping experiences on site which perhaps is a well hidden secret! My friends and I have hired The Organic Farm's private field two years running now. There are about 25 friends and family which get together, pitch up and spend the day playing games and the evenings by the fire pit. In the field there is a compost loo just inside the woods, which can take a bit of getting used to! The loo is the one reason I'd give the site only 4 out of 5 stars (rather than 5 out of 5). I'd advise bringing a torch and a covering for the door as it is a half height door and not exactly "private" but as long as you walk to the toilet with someone, they can keep watch at the entrance of the forest so noone walks in on you! The owners could fix these problems by changing the door and putting a solar light in there but as the field is not their main income it is not a priority for them. There is also a Shepherd's Hut in the field which is beautiful and very luxurious. This always gets snapped up quickly! The prices are reasonable, the location of the field is very private and well worth considering if you are looking a peaceful and private group retreat!
