Mums on Mondays- Gottabee Country

 

Welcome back to another Mums on Mondays, featuring Gottabee Country from Highfields, (in the Abbie Lane Arts and Crafts Village). (Oh, and happy birthday to the Queen…it’s a public holiday here today!)

Gottabee Country is owned and run by Janet and Sally, a mother and daughter team, along with their husbands Steve and Trevor, who do the furniture restoration work. They have been open in Highfields since 2003, but moved into the Abbie Lane Village in this beautifully-restored old church to better display their beautiful collection of furniture, homewares, birdhouses, arts and crafts. Many of the items are one-off, and you’re sure to see different things every time you visit. They are open 7 days a week, and can be contacted on 0746968633 or email gottabeecountry@yahoo.com and you can visit their website here.

And finally, the furniture. Many pieces are restored- and you won’t find two pieces the same. They also take orders for new items such as hat racks and towel rails, made to order. They are able to deliver locally for free too! Gottabee Country accepts lay-by, and if you can’t decide what to get, they also have gift vouchers available.
