Carole Bamford is dedicated to sustainable and holistic living. Her passion for organic farming, natural clothing and well-considered beauty products has made her an influential champion of craftsmanship, traditional skills and natural living.
Enthused, she began growing food for her family and their Gloucestershire and Staffordshire farms soon became organic. In 2002 the farm shop and café opened in Daylesford selling locally the produce made on the estate. Ten years and over 120 awards later, Daylesford has popular stores in Gloucestershire, Pimlico Road, Notting Hill and Selfridges, as well as on-line at daylesfordorganic.com and ocado.com.
In 2006 Lady Bamford began a clothing and beauty company. Bamford’s seasonal collections in natural fabrics are designed to meet the needs of women who balance a busy life of work, family and friends. With a restrained colour palette and beautiful fabrics the clothes are contemporary and effortlessly understated. The quiet luxury of Bamford range now includes natural bath, body, baby and home products. They feature in special treatments at the Hay Barn Spa at Daylesford as well as the Herb House Spa at Limewood and the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc Spa.
