Walking into the Burleigh factory was like stepping back in time. As my sister and I wandered around, I couldn’t help feeling that I wanted to buy everything. I loved the patterns and the colours.
As you walk in, the bunting hangs from beam to beam, the shop is filled with flowers and each table covered in different patterned fabric table cloths. All of the pottery was beautifully displayed. I didn’t want to leave, there was so much I wanted to buy.
As we walked up the rustic wooden stairs, we entered another room filled with the latest displays and each collection had been carefully arranged.
It was clear to see a lot of thought and effort had gone in to the way the products were showcased, with each collection expressed through different themes. What I loved the most was how unique they all were. The display of hanging cups really caught my eye along with the teapot lights. I just loved how every collection of pottery has a story and was set up in these beautiful scenes. Burleigh pottery was established in 1851, and is still a working factory today.
My cousin, Jemma, is the designer behind each of the lovely displays. Over the years she has had the opportunity to meet Prince Charles on several occasions. I bought a couple of items and I will definitely be returning for more. I just absolutely love everything.
Burleigh is the perfect place to spend an afternoon, browsing the shop, sitting by the fire or enjoying a lovely cup of tea and a slice of cake.
Until next time…
