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.
Please Note: We welcome dogs on leads in our gardens and outdoor seating area only.
Assistant dogs welcome throughout all indoor and outdoor areas.
Awards and Reviews:
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.

Paul, my husband, and I go very regularly for lunch or tea. We love the atmosphere. The shop is very tempting - great for presents. The gardens are really beautiful with gorgeous displays of colourful flowers. My husband and daughter take brilliant photographs of the flower beds. Staff are always friendly and welcoming. Thoroughly recommend.
Very beautiful gardens. Good quality plants on sale at reasonable prices. Restaurant serves good food. Not cheap but well presented. Gift shop very expensive for those on tight budgets. Would do well to offer some small items at reasonable prices by
Beautiful gardens in the spring/summer. Cafe serves great freshly made food, cakes are amazing. The pottery for sale is nice, is rather expensive but its craftsmanship in action. Staff friendly and can get rather busy in the cafe.
The best place to go for coffee
Spent a lovely few hours here, we had a delicious lunch in the restaurant there. The shop has lots of pretty things in it, especially for Easter I found the perfect card and gift for a friends Birthday. Highly recommended you visit.
