Barrs Yard, Bath Road, Hungerford has, for the past 12 years, been the home of Garden Art Plus Ltd, one of the country’s leading suppliers of antique and contemporary garden items.
Run by husband and wife team Travers and Katie Nettleton, they have now opened their site to other like minded artisan businesses to create a collective group of companies supplying a range of products and services all with the same ethos of high end product quality.
The Barrs Yard Collective brings together a number of independent businesses including a cafe, wine shop, fashion boutique, flower and antique furntiure outlets and an art gallery which all now reside alongside Garden Art Plus’s own shop and sales yard creating a unique shopping and lifestyle destination just an hour away from London.
Travers Nettleton: “The concept behind The Barrs Yard Artisans Collective was to establish on one easily accessible site a collection of likeminded people who believe in producing the highest quality products and services and who collectively can benefit from each other and appeal to a wide variety of visitors to the yard.”
Already proving to be a huge attraction for, both local and visitors from further afield, the collective businesses run a varied number of events each month ranging from wine tastings and cookery demonstrations through to art exhibitions and special sales evenings.
