Penhurst Gardens is the perfect base from which to explore the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, home to such picturesque towns and villages. With a charming, elevated High Street, a long Market Square and narrow shopping streets, Chipping Norton is one of the few small English towns to offer a range of multiple and independent retailers. Here, you’ll find a department store, boutiques, an art gallery and a collection of shops selling everything from gifts, books and clothes to antiques. The name ‘Chipping’ derives from an old English word meaning market and there’s been a market here since the 13th century. Regular farmers’ markets selling fresh, local produce are also held in the town centre. For food shopping, there’s a Co-op and a Sainsbury’s along with a couple of enticing delicatessens, a fishmonger and two butcher’s shops. The town’s retail outlets sit alongside impressive, historic buildings. A row of striking 17th century alms-houses lead down to St Mary’s Church, which along with the medieval Guildhall is a reminder of the prosperity brought by the wool trade.
