The title of this piece needs a bit of explaining. Why, you might ask, is a farm shop on the Wales/England border offering holiday discounts in Scotland? Well, Hawarden Estate Farm Shop is part of a big family of enterprises, which includes The Glynne Arms, the pub at the hub of Hawarden; Pedlars (www.pedlars.co.uk) which sources and sells wonderful vintage and funky new stuff for your home and is now also based here in Hawarden; and Balbegno Castle – a splendid holiday home on the Fasque & Glen Dye Estate in the Scottish highlands. (The link is the Gladstone family, who bring life, joy and originality to everything they do.)
