I expect that the retail team are feeling like a drove of mad march hares at the moment.
It's certainly been hectic recently but I must say the shops are all looking rather marvellous. You should really come and see for yourself!

Our shops at Hawkshead, Hill Top and the Beatrix Potter Gallery have now been open since February and this weekend our little company became complete with the addition of our Wray Castle shop, which opened yesterday.

A peek inside our enchanting shop within the stunning Wray Castle.

The shop has a fantastic range of beautifully selected items. From stylish home and garden decorations to the iconic Peter Rabbit, delightful books and cosy wool throws. 
And not forgetting our mouth-watering National Trust triple-pack biscuits, featured here.

We have something for absolutely everyone...

...including all you budding knights and damsels out there!

We also took a flying visit to our central office, Heelis in Swindon, this month for a fantastic retail show and tell conference. We have some exciting new items arriving at our shops soon and cannot wait to share them with you.

Gorgeous new scarves now available in our Hawkshead shop.

Some of you may need a gentle reminder that next Sunday is Mother's Day. 
But fret not pickles, we have some great gift ideas for you!

We love these exclusive National Trust bags.
The laminated canvas saddle bag features a pretty floral print 
and comes with many usefull pockets for your bits and pieces.

Or how about a dose of our intoxicating Di Palomo range?
Choose from a selection of perfumes, soaps, and lotions. With our offer of 30% off at the moment why not go crazy and try them all!?

Tuscan Rose and Fig & Grape, two of our Di Palomo scents.

Everyone loves a home-made gift, especially if it tastes good too so why not get baking for mothers day?
Be inspired with our Just Like Mum Used to Make recipe books. Use our delectable jams and curds to really impress.

Just what you need to get started. 

The weather is rather dreary at the moment so it's a perfect opportunity to come indoors and indulge in some well deserved retail therapy!!

Finally, (not to be outdone by the boys) it's time to sign off with our own musical link.
I dedicate it to our wonderfull retail team for sheer brillance and utter madness. Enjoy!
