Husband and wife team, Ali and Ian Carrott, have helped us to make the inside of The Old King’s Head look cosy, warming and comfy with all their beautiful soft furnishings. All of the cushions, blinds and bed throws have been expertly made to measure, and created down the road in Bicker, Lincolnshire, just for us.
We have already received some fantastic feedback on the furnishings

How have you found working with an old building?
Working on The Old King’s Head with its quirky charm and idiosyncrasies is what we specialise in. We love the challenge of the interesting and the different and The Old King’s Head certainly is both of those, with challenging windows sizes and shapes, it has never been dull throughout this one.

It’s great to see our handmade products made locally by local people being used to bring life and a contemporary yet traditional feel to a beautiful old building.
