Stroud, Gloucestershire

The pretty market town of Stroud, in Gloucestershire, is famous for its steep streets and a location in the heart of the Cotswolds. There is plenty to keep you occupied, and we’ve chosen a few must-see attractions.

The award-winning Stroud Farmer’s Market is open every Saturday at Cornhill Market Place and is a beautiful place to buy locally grown produce including everything from fruit and veg, poultry and local cheeses, and even Cotswold Wine and craft beer. This is a proper traditional market that has its roots in history.

For beer lovers Stroud Brewery offers tours and tasting sessions which give a great insight into how your favourite ales are made. The bar serves a decent food menu and there are regular events at the brewery, so it is certainly worth checking the website for current information.

An eclectic and fascinating collection of exhibits and art makes Museum in the Park a worthwhile attraction. Based in and around a 17th century manor house in Stratford Park, the museum charts various aspects of Stroud history and more. If you have children they’ll love the ancient dinosaur exhibits, and also among the 4000 items are some of the first lawnmowers ever built! We did say it was eclectic!

For active types, a fun and unusual activity is paddle boarding on one of the canals in the area. There is a knack to it but there are tutors on site who will help you get the technique right. It’s a fantastic way of enjoying the stunning scenery of the Cotswolds.

Stroud is a town with many interesting and unusual shops, some lovely cafes, and plenty of traditional pubs serving a variety of drinks and food. Don’t forget to take a hike on one of the many Cotswold paths that begin and end close to the town.

A small, but final delivery for 2023 has just landed. For the past 4 months we've been away in the shadows developing and working away to make everything we offer even better. Meaning that our actual production volume for the tail end of 2023 is less than we ideally would have liked... But means a stronger future for the workshop and us in general. In short we've invested heavily in raw materials that take over 4 months to make from start to finish. The investment was both in time and money, and means we will now be able to run continuous production all year around, rather than stop start as we have been for the past 3 years. In short this is much better for everyone, in business terms our accountant is happy, in practical terms we're working to iron out the massive peaks of demand... Which puts undue pressure on everyone. If you've got this far well done! I'm back to the warehouse... Coraandspink.com is stocked now, shops from next week!! #frankie #hollywood #goesto #baglove #travel #sidebag #manbag #backpack #vegan #veganlife
