Kilver Court Designer Village, Shepton Mallet
The West Country's hottest destination for designer fashion, interiors and other stylish lifestyle stuff, foods and drinks. Spectacular gardens, too.
Located in an old Victorian factory on the edge of Shepton Mallet, the family run biz (founder Roger Saul, retail director wife Monty and CEO son Freddie) sells a constantly updated selection of over 40 designer brands.
Named National Shopping Centre of the Year in the industry’s prestigious Drapers Awards, expect an eclectic mix of fashion and accessories for men and women, including Mulberry, Whistles, TOAST and JOSEPH – all with up to 70 per cent off – and with new labels added all the time. Their Paul Smith sales are legendary.
The Great House is mostly about the home, with a fab selection of artisan food and drinks on the ground floor and a warren of rooms onwards and upwards filled with furniture, kitchen and home wares, lighting, gifts and beauty – all discounted designer brands.
From October every year, The Christmas Room in the Great House glitters with all things gold, silver, bronze, iridescent hummingbirds, nutcracker soldiers and hand-blown Egyptian glass baubles – we don’t think you’ll find a better selection of Christmas decorations anywhere in the West Country.
Look for unusual plants in the Garden Nursery and quirky, high end garden paraphenalia in the Wiggly Shed Shop.
Rest and recuperate with tea, coffee, cake and light lunches in The Garden Kitchen Restaurant.
Take a stroll around the spectacular 3.5 acre garden with its 19th century viaduct, parterre and 100m herbaceous border (there’s a small entrance fee).
Opening hours Thurs to Mon 10am–5pm.
