A country cottage extension

When Jonathan and Nicola Cope decided to extend their cottage in rural Monmouthshire they were looking for lighting and homewares which felt at home in their 19th century property.

Jonathan said: “The original part of our cottage dates back to 1843 and it stands in a beautiful location high above the Wye Valley, and the historic ruins of Tintern Abbey.

The Cope’s home improvements have taken three years in all to complete and they have taken great care to ensure every detail is in keeping with the style and ambience of their original home.

“It was natural for us to keep returning for more items. Nigel Tyas’ products are an essential and integral part of our home furnishings. We consider these purchases as investments in our own enjoyment and fulfilment . . .”

Storey House Farm on the Yorkshire Moors

A chandelier which would be the perfect partner for a beautiful modern staircase wasn’t a tall order for Nigel Tyas Ironwork. Find out how a Yorkshire couple chose our lights to finish off their handsome farmhouse extension.

Ian and Catherine Brookes had a bright idea when they decided to build an extension which connected their 19th century farmhouse with the holiday cottage which stands beside it.

They wanted to be able to use and enjoy the two properties as one, when they have their own family and guests to stay – so they don’t have to run outside in all weathers! And, have the option of locking off the two buildings to provide private accommodation for themselves and their paying guests when the cottage is rented out.

The couple then sought impressive light fittings which would match this handsome masterpiece and hold their own in the expansive, new, triple-height room space.

“Nigel Tyas Ironwork kept popping up as we began to search online and we were immediately drawn to their large Hartcliff chandelier as it seemed to us to be both classic and yet modern too. Not fussy but elegant and attractive. We thought it would be perfect fit to hang above our staircase . . .”

Eagle Brae log cabins – Mike Spencer-Nairn

Eagle Brae log cabins are set in the spectacular Highlands countryside and offer a beautiful get-away for holidaymakers seeking a retreat from busy modern life.

When Mike Spencer-Nairn and his family decided to build the cabins, they were determined to create beautiful and characterful interiors to match the splendour of the surrounding countryside - and they didn’t want to compromise on quality and style.

All the cabins were hand-built by master craftsmen using the finest Western Red Cedar logs, sourced from a sustainably-managed forest in British Columbia, Canada. Each log is a different size and shape and they were all carved, worked and fitted together by hand, not one of them going through a sawmill. This ensured they retained their natural beauty and rugged surface – complete with irregular bumps and grooves and knotty sticky out bits! It all went to create a gorgeous, authentic, chunky log cabin look for Eagle’s Brae’s guests. BUT it certainly presented quite a challenge when it came to fitting curtain poles and wall lights.

That’s where Nigel Tyas Ironwork came in . . .

A Kentish Manor House

Bilting Court, parts of which date back to the fifteenth century, has been variously described as a manor house, a farmhouse and as a cottage during its long history.

At the beginning of this century, this impressive Grade II Listed property was in poor condition and the present owners, Mr and Mrs Emberson, have recently finished an ambitious project of sympathetic renovation and refurbishment.

Nigel Tyas Ironwork was asked to design and supply most of the light fittings for this labour of love.
