A visit to the Savill Garden visitor centre earlier this week ticked all my boxes.
A lovely stroll in the tranquil wooded gardens, followed by a nice cup of tea, and finally a wander round the gift shop. What’s not to like?
This architectural gem was designed by Glen Howells Architects, Buro Happold and Engineers Haskins Robinsons Waters.
It was opened in 2006 by the Duke of Edinburgh.
Not unlike the shop at Wisley Gardens in Surrey it is stocked with colourful homewares and children’s toys and books.
Seasonal silk blooms mingle with an assortment of environmentally friendly soft furnishings.
Pastel pinks and cool greys provided a clear direction for my post-festive house styling.
The Savill Garden gift shop is open from 9.30am to 6pm during Summer, and 9.30am to 4.30pm in Winter – every day apart from Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
