The Home of Labrador & Spaniel Gifts

About Inspired by Darcy


INSPIRED BY DARCY produces beautiful gifts and accessories for Labrador & Spaniel lovers. Our small business is based in Somerset and was launched in 2014 by Janet Smethurst.

Darcy is the inspiration behind everything we do, whether its walking through the stunning Somerset countryside with my husband, family and friends, enjoying a pub lunch together or just relaxing in front of a roaring log fire at home. Wherever we are and whatever we do, Darcy is always with us. Besides being the inspiration behind the business, Darcy spends his day keeping everything in order and checking all the products!

Following the success of our Chocolate Labrador collection, Black, Yellow  and Fox Red Labrador ranges have become part of the Inspired by Darcy family of products. Darcy’s best friend, Nell (a Chocolate Springador) who he met 13 years ago at puppy group, shares a big part in what we do and has inspired us to introduce a Spaniel range.

We personally check and pack every single order we send. We never send a product unless we would be delighted to receive it ourselves, so you can always be assured of the quality and service you will receive from us.

“Whenever I’m asked where my idea came from to start a business, I just say…. “I was inspired by Darcy”.

I hope you love our products as much as we do!
Janet & Darcy xx
