Described as a non-corporate retail utopia, as distinct from the UK high street as you might think possible, and far from the madding crowd as they say. The store is an eclectic mix of vintage glasshouses and timber framed sections. There is a fantastic award winning cafe - so you could easily while away a day here. Burford itself is also well worth a visit and there are many beautiful walks by the Windrush river too.
