A lot of what we do is inspired by our beautiful surroundings, and as our name states we are a British company, based in the West of England, in the heart of Somerset. Our head office resides in the West Country on a farm in the beautiful Chew Valley, close to King Arthur’s Camelot and the Vale of Avalon. The fresh air, peaceful surroundings and natural beauty along with the bustle of nearby creative hubs in Bristol and Bath, enable us to collect ideas to ensure our products are innovative and full of creative flair! We also have offices in Florida, where our team’s spirits are always kept high by the endless sunshine!
If you visit Britain, we highly recommend you visit Somerset. Some of the most beautiful scenery in the country is here in our county. We’ve chosen a few of our favorite spots.
This iconic landmark offers wonderful views of the Somerset Levels, Dorset, Wiltshire and Wales. The prominent hill in Glastonbury is topped by St Michael’s Tower; a roofless and evocative monument that is steeped in history and legend. Well known for being one of the most spiritual sites in the country, with Pagan beliefs still very much celebrated here. Glastonbury Tor is a beautiful place to walk, unwind and relax.
The Roman Baths complex is an historical building, which was once a Roman site for public bathing. Situated below street level, and surrounded by the magnificent Pump Rooms and Roman Baths House, the Roman Baths are Britain’s only hot springs with water bubbling up through the ground, which has travelled from rainwater that falls on the nearby Mendip Hills. The Roman’s built the temple in 60-70 AD with the bathing complex being built up over the following 300 years. A wonderful exhibit of the Romans’ advanced building capabilities.
Cheddar Gorge is a limestone gorge in the Mendip Hills near Cheddar village. The gorge is one of England’s most iconic and spectacular landscapes and at 400 feet deep and 3 miles long, this is England’s largest gorge and a most spectacular sight due to it’s numerous caves, pinnacles and sheer drops. The gorge would have been formed about one million years ago during the last Ice Age when water from melting glaciers formed a river, which over time carved through the limestone rock and formed the cliffs we see today.
Clifton Suspension Bridge
The Clifton Suspension bridge spans the width of the Avon Gorge, situated in Clifton, the bridge is a striking symbol of the city of Bristol. Work on the bridge began in 1831 with Isambard Kingdom Brunel commissioned as project engineer. Only the two towers had been built by 1843 due to various political and financial difficulties, and sadly the project was abandoned. In 1853 Brunel died and it was decided the bridge would be completed as his memorial. It finally opened in 1864. Initially designed for light horse drawn traffic, it still meets the demands of the 21st century commuter traffic with 11-12000 motor vehicles crossing it every day.
