A Day at Daylesford

This place is my idea of heaven. Set in the heart of the cotswolds not far from Stow on the Wold is the most gorgeous organic farmshop, spa, cookery school and garden centre. Daylesford have a few of thier organic food outlets in London as cafés and restaurants and they also have a chateau in France where a lot of their orangic produce is from. 


The buildings, converted barns themselves are made of pale wood and the typical pale cotswold stone of the area. As a result each room is light and airy and full of  scented candles, organic veg, wines and cook books. A real country delight. 







After a good wander around it was time for some lunch. We kicked off with a couple of juices..


I went for the green juice, a mix of spring greens, parsley, cucumber, apple, celery and a good chunk of ginger.


Whilst Mum went for market garden rhubarb, carrot, ginger, apple 


We went for the Chicken, lemon and tarragon croqettes with butter beans and spring greens and fresh herbs for main.



For dessert I went for the salted caramel treacle tart, as divine as it sounds. 


Mum went for the creme brulee with orange and rhubarb sorbet. Creamy and delicious. 


After lunch we went into the gardens and wandered around the plants for sale and into the Bamford Haybarn and the spa. They have a beautiful relaxation room which looks out over the Cotswolds.  







If you wander back through the restaurant you can find at the cookery school, a fantastically equipped kitchen with the spices and ingredients on display in jars, the perfect larder!



A great little escape into the country.
