Paramount to Rachel Ferguson, proprietor of clothing, gift and living store Dalethorpe House, is the desire to enrich the lives of her clientele with merchandise that is focused on quality, integrity and craftmanship.
Visitors to Darfield will find Dalethorpe House on level one of the former General Store building, built in 1914.
Its distinctive white weatherboard exterior and original kauri tongue and groove interior are richly evocative of a past era when quality garments and wares were a given.
What a pleasure to browse this beautiful space where every garment, every item of gift or homeware, has been discerningly curated to provide an exquisite selection of contemporary yet enduring pieces.
The Ferguson family’s long association with ‘Dalethorpe’, one of Canterbury’s oldest sheep stations, encapsulates the ethos behind Dalethorpe House – an understanding of a life well-lived and pride in product.
