Chevin Green Farm B&B is delighted to be working in an exclusive partnership with Denby Pottery the well known Derbyshire based manufacturer and sister company Burleigh Pottery who have been making ceramics in Staffordshire since 1851.
As Sarah’s ancestors originally heralded from Staffordshire and then came to settle in Derbyshire, farming in the area from the 1920s, it seemed completely natural for Chevin Green Farm to work with these two renowned pottery manufacturers who share our passion for heritage and quality.
Burleigh make beautiful pottery renowned the world over with fine craftsmanship and traditional manufacturing process. Working from the historical ‘Middleport Pottery’, in the heart of Staffordshire, the Burleigh team handcraft a range of archive shapes decorated with underglaze transfer patterns, drawing from the companies archive which dates back to the mid-19th century.
As part of our unique partnership, Burleigh supply us with a range of pottery to use throughout our B&B – in our breakfast dining room, and in our guest lounge. We appreciate beautiful things and love working with companies that care deeply about how their products are made. At Burleigh each item of pottery made for our B&B has been produced to order by 25 pairs of very skilled hands.
Richard Eaton, Burleigh Design Director, is proud of his company’s partnership with our B&B. He says: “From the moment we approached on the driveway, we knew there was something special about Chevin Green Farm B&B and we were in for a treat – the warm welcome and picturesque setting means you don’t want to leave. Our own thoughts on Chevin Green Farm were confirmed with the recognition of the Michelin Bib Hotel Award – for us there was only one thing missing our pottery! We are delighted that Chevin Green Farm has agreed to showcase our historic Burleigh pottery – a truly quintessential English stay awaits you.”
We are thrilled to showcase various Burleigh ceramics in our breakfast dining room for guests to enjoy including: Regal Peacock, a stunning blue and white pattern first produced in 1913; Blue Calico one of Burleighs best known patterns, famed for it deep cobalt blue colour; and Blue Arden a 19th century pattern depicting an abundance of hawthorm blossoms.
In 2015 we will also be proud to offer an afternoon tea menu to our guests, which will be served on delightful Burleigh Plum Asiatic Pheasant porcelain – the perfect colour match for our guest lounge, now aptly named “The Burleigh Rooms” to mark our relationship with our friend’s from Staffordshire.
