Our Story

About the Owner, Nicoletta

I trained as a nurse, going into Occupational Health as my career progressed. In 2008 I visited the village of Chiddingstone with my family and completely fell in love! 5 years later, the Shop and Tea Room went on the market so I left my job in Canary Wharf to pursue my dream with the support of my husband and three children.

I am truly passionate about making Chiddingstone a destination for exceptional gifts, homeware and food all set in the most beautiful and historic location. I love the community of Chiddingstone, it is a place where locals and tourists alike can wander round, have a chat and eat some delicious food!
