We like very much your description of Cotswold Woollen Weavers as 'many different rooms'... For this is exactly what we are aiming at: many different rooms, some in our buildings and some outside. All interlocking, but all with slightly different themes and content. Thank you...More

FilkinsRM, somewhat taken aback at Cotswold Woollen Weavers, responded to this reviewResponded 4 weeks ago

You are quite right that we do not like dogs in our coffee shops, because so many of our customers do not like them there either. And no, we do not like them in our shop, again because so many of our customers don't either....More

Interesting history and artefacts regarding the wool industry, excellent shop - with a wide range of good quality wool, sheepskin and leather products (mostly reasonably priced). Well worth calling, also a nice tea shop on site.

You are absolutely right, Jennifer H... You can't miss the sheep, and the heritage of wool in the Cotswolds. Many thanks for coming, and choosing, and buying woollen throws from us. Your custom ( and review) is much appreciated.

The cafe is very reasonably priced and the food is good quality. It's a nice place to browse, the clothes shop inside the old buildings with the original machines. Very attractive place and adds something special to the village

Bits of it are. We struggled quite a bit but luckily partner has some mobility so we managed the rough bits. The shop part is ok and very nice if someone's looking for something special.
