Special Branch Collective

Sometimes you need to travel to get something just that little bit special. 15 minutes out of Ippy, in the heart of Marburg, you’ll find Special Branch Collective. Kick-ass coffee and a country company are standard. It’s a family run business with many branches – Emily runs the café; her father Les runs Scotland Yard Antiques; brother Athol specialises in heritage restorations; sister Lucy and her husband, horticulturalist Sam Plant (no joke), supply the gorgeous greenery and potted colour…and everything’s for sale!

Put this on your must-visit-list, you won’t be disappointed!
