ACORN DOOR WEDGE

We love these door wedges – they are a modern classic. Made from oak and featuring a beautiful acorn detail. Designed and made in Great Britain.

BOOT SCRAPER

This is a serious boot scraper to come home to after a long walk in the woods. A heavy cast iron finish that will withstand the toughest of dirt. 

OAK WELLY BOOT RACK

After cleaning your boots off you'll need somewhere to keep them in order. Our oak boot racks can be easily mounted to the wall and allow wellies to dry upside-down (preventing damp!).

SHAKER PEG RAILS

These shaker-style peg rails are a 'Relics' classic. Beautifully crafted in oak and available in 2, 4 and 6 pegs – perfect for hanging hats, coats and bags.

CLOTHES RACK AIRER

Our favourite 'Autumn Essential'. Similar to the traditional 'Sheila Maid', these airers are super handy to have in the utility room or kitchen. Extremely easy to adjust using the pully and hook system. Great for hanging towels and damp clothing before sitting down to relax!

For anyone that doesn't know, Witney has a long history in blanket making. For over 300 years the Oxfordshire town was famous for its blankets, which were exported all over the world. Sadly, the last mill closed in 2002, but one of the buildings associated with the industry has re-opened this week.

Cotswold Woollen Weavers have moved in to The Blanket Hall and will be selling their gorgeous throws, scarves and wool; as well as serving good coffee and pies. If you're visiting Witney, do give them a look... and come and see us too!
