Wadswick Country Store

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 suite of services and greatly extended product range with the launch of a gun room, shooting simulator and dog parlour in the last few years. Plans are agreed for a shop extension and general upgrade in 2018 and the business is focusing on ensuring it has the best staff in store to maintain the growth levels.
