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.

I've just visited the pottery and had my lunch in the cafe. The Fish Pie was superb . It's a beautiful place to visit
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
Wonderful Place near Oxford for pottery, superb food and drink. They started the gardens from scratch and they are becoming more beautiful each year. I have had the pottery now for more than 20 years and they still look like new. Very recommendable!
