Shop the Cotswolds this Christmas

At Chipping Norton Tea Set we're proud to be part of the Chipping Norton business community, offering our quality catering and hire service across the Cotswolds and beyond. In fact, we’re so proud of the businesses in our area we thought we’d write a little blog post about them – letting you know why they’re worth a visit this Christmas.

You may think it’s a little early to talk Santa, but crowds have already begun to pick up in town centres and villages across the UK as we begin to embrace the festivities of the season. But before you head out for your Christmas shop there are just a few places in Chipping Norton you should add to your retailers list…


Christmas shopping in Chipping Norton


For all things eclectic and chic, head to Mash on Chipping Norton’s High Street. Stocking a wide range of fab items, from trendy men’s clothing, to stylish home accessories, and gifts for the man or lady in your life, you’re sure to leave with a carrier bag or two!


If you’re looking for the perfect accessory for your daughter, mother, lover, or friend, take a trip to Wild at Heart . From stunning silver and semi precious jewellery to must-have bags and winter wraps, there’s plenty to be admired.


Christmas is all about the kids – and you’ll find plenty of fantastic gifts for them at tickittyboo. From cute outfits, to stylish designer finds – and of course those all important toys. The only difficulty you’ll have is choosing what not to buy!


Got a friend or family member who loves crafts? If so, treat them to a workshop, or some new yarn, at The Fibre Works, on Middle Row, Chipping Norton. There’s a colour and style for every project and taste – so why not go on a shopping spree and buy a few!


If you fancy splashing the cash on something special for your loved why, why not buy a unique, pine or oak item of furniture for the house from PorcuPine? With a wide range of styles and designs, you’re sure to find something that ticks all the boxes.


Of course, we couldn’t forget Chipping Norton’s fabulous newsagents too. Instead of opting the same-old cards and wrapping paper, choose something pretty and unique from our Cotswolds newsagents!


Fine fare from local favourites


With a full day of shopping ahead of you, you’ll probably want a refuel – and we can’t recommend any place better than Whistlers Café Bar & Restaurant. Serving everything from coffee and cake, to fabulous mains, you’ll have no shortage of options to choose from. You might even be able to sneak in a cheeky Christmas tipple!


If it’s something extra special you’re looking for, dine at Wild Thyme Restaurant. Serving British food with Mediterranean influences, they offer one fabulous menu – but remember to book. It gets very busy here! Wild Thyme is also a great option for a special seasonal meal.


And don’t forget! At the time of writing Chipping Norton is down to the final three in the #GBHighSt best market town category! So don’t forget to vote
