A new brochure, a refreshed ideal

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

After the Burghley Horse Trials we always leave with a refreshed sense of perspective and a wealth of new enquiries from discerning customers (just like you)!


This year, we made a few choice improvements to our usual mobile showroom – namely, new units and paint options and a wider variety of material options than ever before. As you may know, we are renowned for using only the highest quality solid wood throughout in our kitchens, but now to add an extra element of choice to your bespoke kitchen, we can now also create kitchens in a durable, veneered MDF that holds all the core benefits of solid wood, but with the added bonus of withstanding warpage and being more cost effective.


Download our 2016 new and improved brochure and see what we have to offer  – we’re proud to offer more choice than ever before, all hand-crafted and hand-fitted by our team of experts.

‘Building The Dream’ – Hill Farm on Channel 4

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

Did you spot us on the small screen this week?

Hill Farm Furniture featured on Channel 4's Building The Dream

Our Georgian-inspired bespoke kitchen was featured on Channel 4’s ‘Building The Dream’ – with a lovely cameo from our friend Di Ablewhite discussing how to perfectly marry contemporary styling with classic period features, something our minimalist design accentuates with vigour.

If you missed it, watch Duncan and Susan Marshall chat to Di and use her stunning family home as inspiration for their very own project. Di’s keen eye and attention to detail was able to bridge the gap between contemporary and classic, with some can often see as too disimilar to work; however by working with proper proportions and a clean, crisp white look styled with decorative accessories, Di has created a perfect fusion of the two – with a little help from our bespoke kitchen!

Victorian Glasshouses: From derelict to delightful

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

As well as creating beautiful bespoke kitchens in a range of styles, we also offer careful restorations and reproductions of Victorian glasshouses, including lean-to, 3/4 span or full span on a supply-only basis. 

Mike Ashwin, our director, explains how we lovingly restore glasshouses, transforming them from a derelict casing to a delightful showcase in Victorian ingenuity and contemporary craftsmanship.

“On the grounds of a Victorian property in Leicestershire in the late 1990s, held together (quite literally) but three grapevines, was a derelict  ‘Forster & Pearson’ Vinery. We had just installed one of our hand-built kitchens when we were asked if we could restore the ailing building. We arranged a price, and work commenced.

We ‘dipped our toe’, as it were, a little deeper last year at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials and were surprised when our modest display secured two projects: one a magnificent group of glasshouses stretching over 171 feet.

Concerned about maintenance? Don’t be.

Our research over the years into producing these restorations has shown that many people are, understandable, concerned about maintenance, but technology has moved on. My own glasshouse, built partly as an experiment, is now in its eighth year and the paint shows no signs of a breakdown. A good clean with sugar soap at the end of each season seems to be sufficient to maintain its condition.

Faithfully reproduced

Each part of the glasshouse is faithfully reproduced in our workshops from Scandinavian Redwood, using the original timber as a template. We have a comprehensive range of cutters for making glazing bars, cills and door mouldings, enabling us to create perfect replicas of the original parts.

The components are then put together in our paint shop and given a full system of the very best coatings available, before erection on site.

The essence, in my opinion, of replicating these buildings lies in the interior ironwork. ‘Big boys toys’ as the late John Nelson (Lost Gardens of Heligan) called them! Venting tackle that can open 20 feet of front lights with one handle, likewise counter balanced 20 foot roof lights, once again opened by one handle. All a testimony to Victorian ingenuity. Where originals are not available, faithful castings from original parts are commissioned.

The feeling of walking into one of these derelict structures takes one straight back to the Victorian/Edwardian era in which they were originally created.

To be able to recreate these magnificent glasshouses is a great privilege and we are pleased to be able to offer the same attention to detail on a newly-built project as we would on a restoration. We attend to all aspects of the woodwork and glazing, site fitting to existing walls, or in case of a new build, to pre-constructed bases.

Brickwork can be undertaken by us, however, all groundworks and concreting, etc, would need to be done prior.”

We’re now blogging!

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

Welcome to the Hill Farm Furniture blog, which we’ll be updating with regular posts focusing on everything from our latest and most impressive installations and kitchen design trends  to advice on how to create your perfect kitchen and which materials work best in a set space.

For those of you who don’t know us, meet the team!

Jo, Chris and Mike (that’s us) run Hill Farm Furniture, which is a family owned and run business.



This essentially means two things:

1) We operate on a policy of open honesty and trust. We always go the extra mile to offer our input, advice and observations to each one of our valued clients and often our clients choose to look at their kitchen design from a different perspective, adopting some of our helpful hints and tips to maximise useable space and functionality.

2) We work in a relaxed but productive atmosphere, which ensures care and precision goes into absolutely everything we do. Even our kitchen plans are lovingly sketched by Mike to give you not just a conceptual design for your dream kitchen, but also a unique souvenir which people have been known to frame!


Check in with us for regular updates about our latest installations and, in the coming weeks, the opening of our brand new showroom!

Or if you prefer something a little more visual, follow us on Houzz for pictureboards of all our latest projects.



– Love Jo, Chris and Mike x
