Cordelia James Lewes is the newest of the three-door boutique, set in the middle of the high street in the county town of East Sussex. The medieval streets are the home to many independent shops, making the town a destination place for those seeking something a bit different. Surrounded by the chalk cliffs of the South Downs, the Lewes shop, with its high ceiling and spectacular table, offers a space to browse and curate an effortless yet chic wardrobe, without the hustle and bustle of city shopping.


Cordelia James Hawkhurst is our flagship store. With its 10 year anniversary in September 2018, it has gained a loyal customer base from all over Kent. Set in the affluent village in the heart of the Weald, Hawkhurst boasts a historic colonnade of independent shops, in which Cordelia James sits. Surrounded by countryside fields, the shop’s two rooms offer a serene environment in which to find something no high street can offer.


Cordelia James Rye sits in the middle of the high street in this historic costal town. Abundant with cobbled streets and picturesque architecture, Rye is now a destination for holiday makers and weekend get-aways. A town which inspired writers such as EF Benson, Henry James and is the setting for the Mapp & Lucia books, now inspires our customers to purchase unique gifts and outfits for any occasion. The small buzzing shop creates a sense of friendship among locals and visitors alike who support the town as a place of beautiful independent shops.
