Our stores are closing for a little while…

Following Government and Public Health guidelines announced over the weekend, we have taken the sad decision close our stores from Monday 23rd March 2020. In the interests of protecting the local communities we serve, we will not be re-opening until it is safe to do so.

We want to take this moment to thank our local teams for keeping our doors open for as long as possible and to our valued customers for their patience. If you have made a recent purchase that you would like to return, please don’t worry. Just keep your receipt and we’ll accept it when our stores re-open.

Our online shop is operating as normal. We are well-stocked for the coming months and will be launching the latest additions to our Outdoor Living collections as usual, full of soft furnishings and garden accessories to make the coming months a little more bearable. Please do check our website or opt into our newsletter to see our latest products. Our delivery services also remain unaffected and no-contact deliveries can be left at your front door.

As a family business that prides itself on personal service, we continue to be only a phone call away. Our Customer Helpline is open during business hours, for anyone wanting a chat, or a free interior design consultation. Lots of us are waiting to talk to you, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch: 0344 980 8185.

We look forward to seeing you again soon and in the meantime, look after one another and stay well.

What Our Customers Say About Us...  

"I would just like to take this opportunity to thank Laura for looking after me so beautifully! You were under a lot of pressure with orders when I placed mine, but you still continued to take the time and care with me and made it a lovely experience."

Amanda, January 2020
"Thanks for your email and time at The Cottage today Laura. You have done a fine job of installing the curtains and blinds, what a transformation!"

Janice, December 2019
"I have just received my two blinds; I am absolutely thrilled with them and the high standard of finish. I have spent many years making my own curtains and have recently had to give up due to severe and disabling arthritis. The disappointment of not making these blinds was overcome by the delight of receiving and unpacking them. Please pass on my sincere thanks to your workroom."

Roz C, February 2019
"Just to say how pleased I am with the staff at Alresford. I live in Newcastle and visit the store when I stay with my daughter. I spoke to them at Christmas and they were so helpful.

I was planning to decorate a bedroom and when I got home Laura sent me a mood board, which was excellent. I have just received my order, which I am delighted with. I’m very impressed. Please pass on my compliments."
