I have found my true bliss. It’s name is Daylesford Farm. I’d heard of it from Twitter but hadn’t really looked much into it. Then, I tweeted, asking for breakfast recommendations in or around Chipping Norton. Daylesford was suggested a number of times. So I thought that it would be worth a go. I am so glad that I did!
As soon as we pulled into the car park, I knew this was my kind of place. The buildings are converted farm buildings and look great. We walked right through to the cafe at the back & I was instantly in heaven. The whole place has such a lovely, relaxed feel. The customer service in the cafe was excellent and the breakfast options were fab. I opted for the boiled eggs & soldiers with a pot of morning tea but I could have eaten most of the menu. The eggs were perfect & soft – delicious! While we were there, we had a look at their new Autumn menu & I cannot wait to go back and try it. It looks delicious.
After breakfast we had a look around the shop. This is where I wish I had no money worries! They had loads of great kitchen and home stuff, along with great local organic food. I was especially impressed that in their cheese room (yep, you read that right!) they had listed whether their rennet was traditional or vegetarian. Good work Daylesford. We bought a few pastries, some bread and some storage jars for our fresh coffee. We had a look around the barn that sells clothes and fancy smellies – I really fell in love here. Rose oil, scented candles, knitted hot water bottle covers…heaven. Out the back they also have a spa and yoga centre. I’d love a go in both. In fact, if I could, I would go for a yoga class, have a massage, a spot of lunch, buy some fresh produce for tea & a bottle of prosecco to enjoy at home. Perfection!
It’s been a while since I’ve found somewhere that I’ve thought ‘I want everyone I know to come here’ and was thinking about all of the people I could take to Daylesford or meet up with there, just so I had an excuse to go back there. I love the ethos behind the place – everything is local, sustainable & organic. The animals have healthy happy lives & it was a pleasure to go there. Well worth a trip to.
