“Tisbury High Street is better than most, without being flash in any way. Towards the bottom of the hill is 'Ted Martin', a lovely independent florist with real taste & flair. A few doors down is 'The Long Room', an extraordinary interiors store that sources Mexican textiles, Venetian glassware, French enamelware and Masai leathers that you absolutely won't find anywhere else.”
