Cotswold Woollen Weavers is not a museum, nor a shop. But it is somewhere we hope you will find always charming, and beautiful, and dependable… But also always unexpected and different. You are welcome to drop in for a cup of coffee and sit a while, or wander about the buildings, and the museum, and the exhibitions.
You could buy a postcard. Or you can buy from our ranges of some of the best woollen garments made in England (they really are… There is no point in mock-modesty.)
Or you can stay for half a day and find out all about the long heritage of textiles in the Cotswolds. And then, if you like, you can hire one of our bicycles and go on adventure. A museum of textile curiosities, an Explorium full of delights you though you'd never see again (let alone to buy), a decent coffee shop where you can sit and read the papers, an orchard to laze about in the sun. It really is a special place.
The Cotswolds is an area of England synonymously famous for its idyllic villages and sweeping hills, but there are a small collection of tourist attractions that lie within its borders, Cotswold Woollen Weavers is one of them. For 500 years farmers have sheared the sheep that have helped transform this area into what you see today, but the journey wasn't an easy one. Here at this attraction you can follow that journey through the years and maybe even bag a woollen bargain while your at it. I really like this attraction, not only because of the story it tells, but because the place just makes you feel good. They have a lovely coffee shop which sells some wonderful cakes and produces a great cup of coffee. Another thing I liked about the Cotswold Woollen Weavers was fact that you can spend as little, or as long as you like here.
