Introducing Brewhouse, Cotehele & Lacock

6 May 2021

A series of hardwearing porcelain tiles with an aged terracotta feel, this collection’s name is taken from The Brewhouse at Moseley Old Hall in Staffordshire, an Elizabethan farmhouse that hid King Charles II from Cromwell’s troops in 1651.

One of the National Trust’s more dramatic properties, steeped in Royal intrigue, Moseley Old Hall is the perfect place to immerse yourself in 17th-century history. See the bed where King Charles II slept when he sought refuge after his defeat at the Battle of Worcester in 1651. The ground floor features an entrance hall, a parlour and a brewhouse complete with red brick tiles inside and out and it is this brick floor paving which inspired our distinctive Brewhouse collection.

Durable and low maintenance, this porcelain tile collection is perfect for bathrooms with its R11 slip rating and non-porous finish.

From their home to yours

Perfect for period properties as well as adding extra character to homes, these porcelain tiles combine an on-trend terracotta feel with a hardwearing, durable finish. Ideal for bathrooms, shower areas and wet rooms, the designs offer high slip resistance and low maintenance due to their non-porous design.

They also look striking in kitchens and hallways and are available in four sizes – Brick, Parquet, Rectangle and Square – ideal for creating your own unique layout such as basketweave and herringbone effects.

Inspired by the flagstone floor in the great kitchen of Cornwall’s Cotehele, an atmospheric Tudor house with Medieval roots, this porcelain tile collection pays homage to the impressive kitchens you still find in National Trust properties.

A rambling granite and slate-stone manor house in the east of Cornwall, Cotehele has changed little over the last five centuries. Its expansive estate includes the atmospheric Tudor house adorned with tapestries, armour, pewter, brass and old oak furniture along with the great kitchen with its hardwearing flagstone floor.

Cotehele is available in Beige, Grey or Sand in a variety of formats to complement any interior.

From their home to yours

With its random, broken flagstone floor, the great kitchen at Cotehele was an instant inspiration for our Cotehele porcelain collection.

An honest, raw and unrefined range of versatile stone reproduction porcelain floor tiles, the three-tone colour palette will complement any interior, be it classic timber kitchen cabinetry, a softly neutral entrance hall or the soothing sanctuary of a cream and off-white bathroom or en-suite. Create a smooth, seamless look throughout the home with Cotehele laid from hallway to kitchen.

One of the defining features of Lacock Abbey, in Wiltshire, has to be its head-to-toe, honey-hued stone covering the building’s facade, interior walls and flagstone floors. Our Lacock collection has been designed in homage to the time-worn limestone flooring that can be found in the cloisters.

Once home to William Henry Fox Talbot, inventor of the photographic negative, 13th-century Lacock Abbey is a quirky Wiltshire country house with monastic roots and its own woodland grounds. A plethora of different architectural styles including Tudor, Gothic and Victorian, the Abbey is firmly rooted in its medieval past with a Grade I listing and beautifully preserved cloisters and gardens. It is the flooring within those cloisters that has inspired our Lacock collection of random sized flagstones in a choice of two limestone finishes.

Choose from the Heritage finish, perfect for creating an aged look within a classic kitchen, or the Natural finish for a velvety clean feel.

From their home to yours

Lacock is the perfect limestone flooring solution for interior applications in classic or contemporary homes.

Our Heritage tile offers an aged, distressed feel with handmade raw edges and a machine tumbled finish. Perfect for complementing timber cabinetry and a freestanding cast iron range cooker, it’s a floor tile that works wonderfully in open-plan kitchens where the authentic limestone tile can be carried through into a dining area, utility and hallway beyond. We also have a Natural tile that creates a smooth satino effect perfect for more modern schemes.
