Bulwick Village Shop set to reopen after fire
A shop owner has announced the date she'll reopen after a devastating fire.
Camille Ortega McLean is delighted to announce that Bulwick Village Shop , also known as The Pickled Shop, will be back in business on Monday, September 21.
The shop suffered a devastating thatched roof fire in February 2019 and delays caused by lockdown hampered progress on repairs.
As the home of The Pickled Village’s range of pickles and preserves, the shop has been well-known to visitors since 2005 for its year-round tastings as well as beautifully presented gifts and hampers.
The shop also serves a menu of delicious home-made food and is famous known for its generous cooked breakfasts, lunchtime ploughman’s – as well as afternoon tea - not to mention tapas served on the idyllic terrace and washed down with a choice tipple.
Although Camille loves curating a fine and original selection of speciality foods and wines, she is also keen to ensure customers from Bulwick and surrounding villages are provided for with everyday essentials like bread, milk and postage stamps.
The shop has been reimagined as a deli-kitchen space by Stamford furniture designer Matthew Cox – incorporating marble counters, antique lighting and lovely areas to sit for a coffee and cake. The open plan layout is designed to feel more homely and welcoming, encouraging exploration and providing wheelchair access between the shop and terrace.
Camille said: “My team and I can’t thank everyone enough for their support over the last 18 months – we are thrilled to be back to serve our community, and encourage visitors from all over the country to enjoy our fabulous new shop, as well as everything else the beautiful village of Bulwick has to offer.”
