Several shops sit near The Fearrington House Inn within Fearrington Village. McIntyre’s Books is an independent store with an entire room devoted to cooking and gardening titles, and yet another for author readings (on average, the shop hosts three readings per week). Plan to fall into one of the plump chairs in the deep-green “library” and peruse a book by the fireplace.
Dovecote carries a well-chosen collection of home décor items and accessories — everything from scarves to glassware. At Haven, you’ll find the Frette sheets, Kingsdown mattresses, robes and Molton Brown body-care products from your room at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star inn. And Belted Goat in the heart of the village is where you can pick up a Fearrington T-shirt, a bag of house-roasted coffee beans or a scoop of Maple View ice cream, made at a nearby dairy.
