Local Retail Therapy

One of the delights(?) of modern life is the opportunity is to explore the shopping differing regions offer. Around Ravenstone there are numerous interesting shops and retail outlets.


For example on the outskirts of the village is Beesely’s Garden Centre and tea rooms, while 5 minutes away at Heather is Cattows Farm Shop for fresh fruit and vegetables while at the next village, Packington  is the Mushroom Basket – a retail counter offering a large range of Exotic and Wild Edible Mushrooms, both fresh and dried, produced and imported by Livesey Bros, the largest growers of Exotic Mushrooms in Europe based in the heart of the National Forest.


Not far away is Low Woods Furnishings for Fabrics, Furniture & Home Accessories with over 60,000 metres of curtain and upholstery fabric in stock plus branded sofas and other household Furnishings


One of the most exciting rural developments in the UK is the creation of a new National Forest covering parts of Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire. There’s lots to see and things to buy.  More details can be found on the National Forest Website


And for those wanting an escape from retail therapy the Sustrans Cycle Trial 52 passes through the village close to Ravenstone Guest House making us an ideal centre to explore and enjoy the tranquility of the Sustrans trails in our area.
