Café
“A must-visit for anyone in the area, the luxurious Daylesford Organic Farm shop and restaurant is anything but rustic… this is luxury Cotswold living at its very best. The café offers fantastic all-day dining from breakfast right through until early supper, with an excellent deli should you want to pick up a few treats whilst you’re there to take back to your holiday cottage.”

Garden Center
“A nationally renowned garden and home destination with a distinctly luxurious twist, Burford’s in-house café offers a selection of tasty, fresh dishes to enjoy no matter what the time of day. Perfect as a pit-stop should you be checking out the incredible goods on offer in the shop, but equally as good as a dining destination. ”
