Aston Pottery and Gardens
Aston Pottery and Gardens
Our gift shop was originally built in 1998 and expanded in 2008. Now in 2016, also utilising our upper floor, it is an extraordinary showcase of the patterns and designs we have produced in our 25 year history. Combined into fabulous displays, our gift shop mixes pottery with a large selection of classic and contemporary gifts for people of all ages. We work on a small order basis with most of our giftware displayed once for a short time only. Our gift shop is adjoined by our award winning country café (voted best café in the Oxfordshire restaurant awards 2015 and 2016). Outside, they are surrounded by our gardens and our visitor parking area.
Our products are sourced from all around the world, to create themed displays matching our various pottery ranges. The gift shop has expanded and diversified through a comprehensive and beautiful range of ladies accessories and clothing. As Christmas approaches the whole gift shop takes on a magical appearance with beautiful displays which change each year. The large themed trees are filled with colourful baubles and decorations ranging from kingfisher and peacock blues to lush golds and pinks, not forgetting our traditional red tree. You may also see a log cabin, a nutcracker theatre, or a woodland and ice theme as you meander round the shop. Currently, our shop stock can only be purchased by visiting us; we are frequently getting in new products so there will always be something new to see when you visit.
Our shop in the heart of Oxfordshire is the only place where you can see the full Aston Pottery collection of shapes and patterns. Everything we sell is designed, manufactured and hand-decorated at our workshop and studio adjacent to our Gift Shop in Aston, Oxfordshire. With something to fit everybody’s taste, our wealth of ceramic designs cover classical illustrative takes on popular wildlife and floral imagery, contemporary interpretations of pattern design, and the silhouetted forms of our Rural Life range, not to mention a host of offerings for those of a younger age.

Place I’ve always wanted to go as only 10 minutes away, had a good look round got lots of lovely things bit expensive but taken into account all made from scratch on site etc worth the money. Cafe was lovely only had coffee and a fruit scone but very yummy .bit disappointed about gardens as nothing was in flower even though I looked on website and there should have been definitely tell others about my visit 💐🍰☕️
Excellent modern light barn restaurant...quality items in shop ...pottery range....children's toys ...cookware...gifts ....and a seasonal border garden. A great place to take visitors too.
What a fabulous floral delight walking through the garden this place is. So pleasantly surprised at such a display of wonderful flora. I agree totally with everyone's comments on the restaurant and gift shop though the excellent and rather unique Pottery on sale was a little out of my price range, which was a shame.
We went for a coffee and stayed for ages! The poppies are stunning and, having been before, the gardens will continue to impress all summer. Beautifully displayed food on offer and polite staff made our visit that little bit more enjoyable. The wide range of products on sale makes it a lovely place to browse.

Lovely spot for a mooch amongst all the lovely things with a 1st class cafe 🙂
Lovely hand-crafted products in the shop and a brilliant cafe. Shopping and cake combined, what more can you ask for?!
Brilliant visit, interesting trip around the pottery work area with an excellent talk on route about how the pottery is made. Very good reasonably priced shop. Very tasty and competitively priced restaurant. Amazing flower display in the well kept gardens. Nice to see friendly happy staff. Well worth a visit
This is my first visit here. The shop has lovely products. All staff are very friendly and helpful. The café has tasty food and great tasting coffee. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the flowers are wonderful. Thank you for a fantastic visit and we will definitely be back!
What a lovely day. We had a fabulous talk and demonstration in the pottery. A real eye opener to how much work goes into making just one piece. Lovely lunch in a really pleasant restaurant/ cafe. Shopping was a delight, we all spent a few pounds. The gardens are beautiful and all the staff were friendly and approachable. Fabulous,we will definitely be back
Such a gorgeous place to visit. The herbaceous borders are stunning. The cafe food is beautiful. It was very busy today but I think that's because Aston Pottery was on Gardeners world last week! A beautiful place to loose a few hours in!
