What Our Customers Say About Us...  

"Our kitchen was completed a week ago today and I wanted to say thank you very much Laura for your help and advice that you gave when it came to choosing the Susie Watson Designs tiles. We are really pleased with them."

Brian, August 2020
"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."
