Barrs Yard

Barrs Yard

Barrs Yard is open 7 days a week, Mon- Sat 9-5pm.  Sunday opening 10-4pm.

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, sthey 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 Artisans Collective, brings together a number of independent businesses including a deli, wine shop, fashion boutique, gardening clothing brand and 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.

The sunshine and warm weather of the past few weeks has meant that here in The Yard we have all been extra busy. It was also a great month to celebrate our first birthday in - so a big thank you to all of you who joined us on the 11th to mark the day!

June is also looking to be another exciting month with lots of new stock arriving at Garden Art following their success at the Chelsea Flower Show, some great new summer wines at Grapesmith, wonderful plants at Wendy’s Flowers, fabulous fashion items at Jax, Abstract Art at Cricket Fine Art, furniture at Marmalade and of course cakes, coffees and more at Honesty...

WENDY LEWIS FLOWERS

These beautiful carved doors in the flower shop make a stunning backdrop to display plants.
Citrus trees are at their best in June - perfect for a conservatory or sheltered terrace.

MARMALADE

Autentico’s full range of paints, for both furniture and home decoration, are now available to purchase from the Barrs Yard outlet. These really are wonderful – lots of vibrant colour and……… great value compared to other Artisan paints.

CRICKET FINE ART

‘Abstract Art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead uses shape, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect’. (Tate)

This month Cricket Fine Art have a wonderful evening lined up on 'Abstract Art within the world of interiors’.  We have put together a fabulous panel of experts, Leslie Pratt (Gallery Owner), Chloe Lamb (Artist), Jo Mann (Lighting expert) and Libby Blakey (Interior Designer) to help enlighten our audience on how we can include abstract art with in our homes.  

Please get in touch with the gallery if you would like to attend.

An exhibition by Paul Wadsworth – “Songs from the Sea” will be running from our London gallery from the 5th – 16th of June. We would be delighted to see you there at 2 Park Walk, London SW10 0AD.

It’s always nice to get the first prize!

The Muddy Stilettos Awards 2018 have been announced and Grapesmith has been voted The Best Wine Shop in Berkshire!  Local followers of this Urban Guide to the Countryside blog/website voted overwhelmingly for Barnaby – whether or not he has to wear muddy stilettos now is all together another question!

Here’s a quick reminder of why Grapesmith win awards:

Independent and local – they know their customers and what they like; Delicious wines at palatable prices – whatever the occasion, all organised in three simple sections

QUAFF – Everyday kitchen supper wines, brilliant to drink but outstanding value – everything under a tenner.

SAVOUR – Rather special wines, perfect for dinner parties or just treat yourself – everything between £10 and £20.

CELLAR -  wines to keep, to gift, to invest in – everything over £20.

Plus……the finest spirits, beers and mixers!

And talking of spirits - thanks to all of you who braved the rain storms and joined us at our Gin Tasting last week…………….we have a great range of craft Gins from some of the country’s finest producers here are just a few of the bottles sampled on the night.
