Join the team at Wadswick!

Wadswick Country Store is a retail business situated on the edge of the Cotswolds, seven miles east of Bath. Located on the farm on which it was launched 30 years ago, it caters for the country market. Customers participate in horse riding, field sports or perhaps just enjoying dog walking and the country life. The shop’s product range is extensive with clothing and equipment from top brands such as Le Chameau, Ariat, Musto, Pikeur, Dubarry, Barbour, Beretta, Schoffel, Fairfax & Favor, and Joules. Product focus is on quality but is broad enough to cater to most budgets.

The store has grown steadily since inception and now offers a broad range of services and products. The physical store is currently being extended and we have recently added a world-leading Shooting Simulator to complement our Gun Room offering. Holisticvet, a homeopathic veterinary practice for dogs and horses, has recently taken up residence on site. As the site grows, we anticipate other additions to the business to create an established destination store.

This is an exciting time for Wadswick Country Store so if you’re looking for a great career opportunity in the country retail sector, we would love to hear from you!
