Welcome to the Saltyard
Here at the Saltyard we believe in doing things right. We believe that life is full of goodness. All you need to really enjoy it is a little time.
At the Saltyard we believe that the weekend can be longer, that food can taste better, and that the sunset on Sunday will take a lifetime to dip below the horizon.
When we're not crafting beautiful books for your reading delight, here are the sites on which we while away the hours:
Painter and print maker, we just love her wildlife prints inspired by landscapes in Norfolk, Cornwall and Shropshire.
Atlantic Blanket Company, Cornwall
You can never have too many blankets and throws.
Bookswarm designed our website and we love them because they love books.
Cornish Sea Salt
Season with a pinch of Cornish Sea Salt.
David Mellor Design
Not only for fine tableware made in Sheffield, but for all beautiful kitchen things. And, he designed the traffic light - how cool is that?
Everyone likes a day out in Whitstable, and once you've been to the Sugar Boy for some mint humbugs then you can shop for nice prints, books and cards in Frank.
Much Ado Books
Not only books, but workshops, crafts and cards. Visit the medieval Alfriston Clergy House while you're there.
Pallant House Gallery, Chichester
An eclectic permanent collection in a Queen Anne house and always wonderful exhibitions.
Salts Mill, Saltaire
A Yorkshire mill. David Hockney. One of the nicest bookshops anywhere, ever.
St. Jude’s Gallery
For obvious reasons. Angie Lewin, Mark Hearld, Emily Sutton, Ed Kluz, Jonathan Gibbs... and for fabrics, cushions and tote bags.
The Foodie Bugle
An emporium of foodie delights, both an online shop and magazine and a lovely new shop in Margaret's Buildings, Bath. We can't wait to visit.
The General Store, Peckham
For feeding us.
The Hambledon, Winchester
Leave your wallet at home... Just saying.
The Landmark Trust
Because who doesn't want to spend a weekend in a folly?
Under the Thatch
Holidays in Wales. Under the thatch and preferably with a wood-burning stove.
Woottens of Wenhaston, Suffolk
A trip to Southwold isn't complete without a detour to Woottens for scented geraniums, pelargoniums, auriculas, lavenders, flag irises. In short, all good things for the garden.
Yorkshire Sculpture Park
Sculpture, in a park.
Five Quarters: Recipes and Notes from a Kitchen in Rome
‘Of course I thought Rome was glorious, but I didn’t want to stay. A month, three at most, then I’d take a train back to Sicily to finish the clockwise journey I’d interrupted, before moving even further southwards…’ Instead, captivated by the exhila …READ MORE
Vanilla Black: Fresh Flavours for your Vegetarian Kitchen

“Rush out and buy it. It is really very good.”
“Mark’s writing style is conversational and engaging, he’s deeply knowledgeable, yet he’s low-key and modest. He’s ‘can-do’ and accessible without ever being patronising.”
“Indulge your inner Paddington Bear.”
“What a great read – a true British inspiration story – I loved it!”
“Emma Bridgewater, queen of kitchenware, proves herself to be queen of the memoir too.”
“Somewhere between a culinary glossary, a seasonal miscellany and a how-to cookbook, this is one dinky kitchen companion, courtesy of the Primrose Hill greengrocers. Its diminutive size and pleasing red print on white paper – as pretty as a crisp gingham napkin – make it eminently easy to use, and use it you will.”
“[An] ease is found in Florence Knight’s One: A cook and her cupboard, a volume that could be a manifesto for a minimalist culinary aesthetic.”
“I’m smitten with the sweet spice mix from Honey & Co, a warm, heady mix including cardamom, fennel seed, mahleb and cinnamon. A teaspoon sprinkled on porridge is so satisfying it can almost persuade me to forgo sugar.”
“Not all cookbooks are as useful in the way that Sarah Randell’s has proved to be . . . Sarah Randell’s book provides an amnesty for all those who love to make marmalade and then use it up.”
“A volume that could be a manifesto for a minimalist culinary aesthetic.”
