About Us

I started Tailor the Foxx in 2019 from our working Dairy and Sheep farm in Levens, The Lake District.

I had worked in Buying for a large and beautiful garden centre in Ambleside, and found that I fell in love instantly with certain brands and wanted to create many years later my own shop.

Two children later and with lots of support we started Tallot the Foxx! 


We are open Monday to Saturday each week but if you need to chat before you buy please feel free to contact us via email or telephone.

Monday - 9-30 ~ 2.45

Tuesday - Saturday 9-30 - 4

Sunday and bank holidays closed

We’re really lucky to have some amazing local businesses in and around the town that are great for the whole family. With Kendal castle and a thriving local high street, there’s plenty to do if you want to make a day of it in Kendal and the Lakes. Here are just a few of our favourites that you might want to visit.




This 17th century, Grade 2 Listed building on Stricklandgate is packed with original features and home to one of the oldest coffee roasting and blending shops in the country.  The tea and coffee supplies are contained in their original brass cannisters.

Kendal Castle

Probably late 12th Century, is now a ruin, but worth exploring. From here you can get brilliant views over the town. At Kendal Museum is an exhibition telling the story of the Castle, its people , and the life of the town. There are displays showing medieval objects, reconstructions of the Castle, computer displays and there are various activities such as coin rubbing.


The Castle was built in the early 1200’s as the home of the barons of Kendal. They had a big influence on the development of Kendal. The Parr family is the best known of the baronial families, the most famous member being Katherine Parr, the sixth and last Queen of Henry VIII.


The Famous 1657 Chocolate House In Kendal - Luxury Chocolates

Our 1657 Chocolate House in Kendal, Cumbria is believed to have been built in the 1630’s, originally as a private home in Kendal.

Long before it became a Lake District tourist attraction in 1984 the Chocolate House, now in it’s 30th year has been a bakery, antiques shop, travel agents and a ladies fashion shop.

As many of our English traditions are fast disappearing, we are committed to retaining a few of the best from the 1600’s.

Our 16 speciality chocolate drinks and dishes have names from that era, such as the well-known Nell Gwynne – one of Charles II’s mistresses.

No wonder chocolate is said to have aphrodisiac properties. Now you can send or receive our luxury chocolates and gifts by post via our online ordering facility all carefully packed by our dedicated staff.

Our luxury chocolates continue to attract chocoholics and corporate clients from over 40 countries taking advantage of our 100 different kinds of loose chocolates and our ability to offer personalised chocolates and gift boxes.
