Welcome to The Dolls House
Welcome to Northleach, a delightful little town in the heart of the Cotswolds. My dolls’ house shop has been here since moving from London’s Covent Garden in 1995. I opened the first specialist shop back in 1971, in a quiet corner of Marylebone, then spent 15 hectic years in the renovated Covent Garden Market.
Now collectors can come and browse at leisure, in this ancient market town, with its centuries-old stone houses, a 15th century church, and an award-winning butchers shop.
UPDATE 12/6/20 Open by appointment only from 18 June Thursday Friday Saturday. One at a time wearing mask or scarf. 01451 860431 (leave your phone number) email@example.com (I take dogs out briefly on those days.)
Shop and cottage by Sue & Trevor Cook, built for me in Covent Garden, with working blind and opening shutters. ..Now bought for a delightful girl Juno’s 9th birthday – she was so excited. A relative bought the same design from me in the 80s.
Finely detailed violins in cases (red or green interior) by Paul Isaacs, who originally made some for me in Covent Garden when he was a student. Now a retired dentist, he is used to fine detail. £350 each.
Just before lock down had a large Tudor house delivered. Had hoped to add to my collection, to replace the Vic Newey from my book ‘Decorate a Doll’s House’ which I was persuaded to sell as I didn’t like the stairs. This was too big to go up the stairs, so now on sale. I also have a very detailed 2-room house which is too small to take all the furniture from the original house – photo of that to follow. (Now SOLD)
