About Us

Lillico Attlee Country Stores have been a family-owned business since 1788. Originally operating as a grain and agricultural merchant, the business is now in its fifth generation of ownership with two stores, Lillico’s Country Store in Aylesford and Attlee’s Country Store in Dorking.

With family values very much at the heart of the business and passed down through the generations, Lillico Attlee Country Stores offer everything the rural community needs from equestrian clothing, farm feed and bedding, pet supplies and more. As well as a huge range of products, the stores also offer a number of services including rug cleaning, dog weighing, clipper blade sharpening and more.

Steeped in history, Attlee’s Country Store is the slightly older of the two stores and has been located in the heart of Dorking town centre for over 200 years. Founder John Attlee (great-grandfather of British Prime minister Clement Attlee) originally traded in corn and was just 23-years-old when he first opened. The store has withstood the test of time, operating through nine monarchs, two World Wars and an industrial revolution to become the shop that it is today. In 1979, Attlee’s Country Store was purchased by W.M. Lillico and Lillico Attlee Country Stores was born. Still located at the Parsonage Mills site which it moved to in 1839, Attlee’s Country Store has been modernised with a new country superstore, offering even more products and services to the local rural community, whilst still withholding the important values set by the Attlee family. 

Lillico’s Country Store, also originally trading corn and grain in Croydon, was inherited by William Lillico in 1840 from his boss, William Lock. The business moved into Kent in 1935 when Platt Mill was purchased in Borough Green, however the business did not fully relocate to Aylesford until 1977. Just like Attlee’s, the business was passed down from generation to generation, also withstanding the World War, recessions and the great farming depression.
