Our Showroom is open 9am-5.00pm, Monday to Saturday.

Our Factory & Showroom on the outskirts of Bristol Inside our newly extended 3,500 sq. ft. Showroom

By far the best way for us to answer your enquiry and give you options and prices is to visit our newly extended 3,500 sq. ft. Factory Showroom, if that's possible for you.

This way we are able to explain all the various options open to you and how these affect the overall cost of what you're thinking of having done….And of course we always have the kettle on stand-by, to give you a welcome cuppa!

You'll see Fabrics…

…In fact more fabrics (over 4,000) than you probably ever thought existed! But don’t worry, we like to make things as straightforward as possible… so we have over 1,200 fabrics that will all cost the same amount if you choose any of them to have your order made in them.

Over 4,000 Upholstery & Curtain fabrics
on display…
…And they’re ALL on-going, rather than cheaper unknown ‘clearance’ fabrics.

We’re here to help… or just let you browse!


Some of our visitors have a very good idea of what they would like… whereas others are looking to make use of our 29 years of experience and want some guidance. Either way we promise that you’ll be made very welcome and we’ll be delighted to show you around!

Our helpful and friendly staff are on hand to help you by showing you the various options of how we can make the upholstery or furnishings that you are interested in.

We’re not interested in trying to ‘sell’ you anything, which is why none of our staff are paid on commission!

plaining and showing you examples of what we can do for you makes your visit to us a relaxed and enjoyable one… regardless of whether you’re just here to have a browse, or if you decide to place an order.

You’ll see real people working!

Call us old fashioned if you want… but we still employ real, live craftsmen and ladies!
We don’t have any production lines here and rather than use computerised cutting tables that use a computer program to cut the fabric for your order… we still use a trained eye and good old tailor’s scissors!

Just part of our new Customer Workshop Viewing Walkway

We've recently expanded our Showroom and created a 'Customer Viewing Gallery' so you can now see what we are working on at any time, in an open and transparent environment.

You can try all our foam grades…..

We’ve dedicated part of our Showroom to our unique 'Foam Selector' area that enables you to try sitting and lying on numerous combinations of all our foam types, to find the one that's 'just right'!

We have many different foam cushion types… …For you to try 'in situ'
Our Foam Selector area Try as many foam grades as you wish

We're constantly amazed at the distance people will travel to visit our Showroom…

The image above is of Mr & Mrs Bendall from Scotland who booked their motorhome in with us to have a full re-upholster. They drove the 'van down to us and flew home! When they collected the vehicle a couple of weeks later, we presented them with a bouquet as they'd beaten the record for the furthest distance a visitor had driven to us… a massive 824 mile round trip!

Often customers will bring cushions and curtains and furnishings with them when they visit, for us to measure.

If customers have a motorhome, they will usually bring it with them when visiting. We can then measure your motorhome for you. If you wish you can take our upholstery fabrics, foam and furnishings out to your 'van to see how they look 'in situ'. 

We welcome all motorhomes, large and small! Fabrics can be taken out into your ‘van

We gladly give all visitors options and prices without any obligation. This is all done in a professional, no-pressure manner by our staff, who are all non-commission and have no 'targets' to beat, by the way!

If You Decide To Order

We purposely don't offer a rushed 'while you wait' service as we believe very strongly in giving a job whatever time is necessary to complete it to an excellent standard. So for your convenience, whatever you may order, can be despatched to any address when completed. If you can’t transport your items to us then we have a Nationwide Collection Service available using couriers.

Alternatively, if you have a motorhome, we can book a future 'slot' for you in our Production Schedule. Then, when we do the work for you, if you wish, you can arrange to leave your 'van in our compound at the rear of our premises for a couple of weeks, while we carry out everything that you have asked to be done.

To try and avoid visitors all arriving at once please give us a ring or drop us an e-mail if you would like to visit and we will very much look forward to meeting you.

Why not stay overnight before or after you visit us…

If you have a touring caravan or motorhome then there are local sites in and near Bristol if you would like to stay in your 'van for FREE before or after you visit. Please see below for further details.

Travel Directions to our Factory & Showroom

We're situated on the south west outskirts of Bristol and so are easy to reach without going through central Bristol!

If you have a Sat Nav, then please use BS13 7TW. If not, then hopefully the following travel directions will make it easy for you to find your way to our premises.

TRAVELLING FROM THE NORTH, WALES, LONDON & SWINDON

Leave the M5 at junction 18 and follow signs for Bristol & Airport. Keep on this road and after approx. 5 miles you'll pass under The Clifton Suspension Bridge.

Follow signs for Taunton A38 & Bristol Airport and rise up onto the flyover. Once on the flyover keep in the left hand lane, following signs for A38 Taunton. When the road becomes three lanes, remain in the left lane and bear off left as shown by green signs showing A38 Taunton & Bristol Airport.

After about 1/4 mile you'll pass a KFC on the left. Keep straight on this road and continue to follow signs for A38 Taunton & Bristol Airport.

After about 1 mile you'll pass Big Yellow Storage on the right.

The road then soon becomes 2 lanes, move into the right hand lane. Go over the traffic lights, where the road then becomes 3 lanes. Move into the right lane and follow road round to the right.

After the road bears round to the right, keep in the right hand lane. The road bears round to the right again.

As you rise up the incline you need to move into the left hand lane, still marked A38 Taunton & Bristol Airport. The road bears to the left and continues to rise. Keep in the left lane.

At the top of the incline the road forks with The Cross Hands pub in the middle. Take the left fork signposted Bishopsworth.

Follow this road for approx. 3/4 of a mile where you'll come to a mini- roundabout with the old red brick Bishopsworth Swimming Baths in front of you. Bear left into Whitchurch Road.

Take the second turning on the left, which is Cater Road.

Our premises are in the middle of Block 11, which is approximately half way along Cater Road, on the left. Our red 'Caravan Seat Cover Centre' sign is 44ft long, so clearly visible, as is our 'Reception'.

Welcome! You've found us – hopefully without any arguments!

TRAVELLING FROM THE SOUTH WEST

Leave the M5 at junction 22 and follow signs for A38 & Bristol Airport. After passing the airport continue on the A38 towards Bristol.

After approx. 4 miles you will arrive at a new roundabout called the ‘Lime Kiln’. Take the 3rd exit at this roundabout.

This takes you onto the recently opened £45m South Bristol Link Road! Just continue straight on all along this road, over several sets of traffic lights.

Eventually you’ll pass ‘Middleton Mobility’ and ‘Bathwick Tyres’ on your left. Shortly after these landmarks you’ll come to a small roundabout. Take the first exit and this is Cater Road.

Our premises are in the middle of Block 11, which is approximately half way along Cater Road, on the right. Our red 'Caravan Seat Cover Centre' sign is 44ft long, so is clearly visible, as is our 'Reception'.

Welcome! You've found us – hopefully without any arguments!

TRAVELLING FROM BATH, WARMINSTER, DORSET, HAMPSHIRE
& SUSSEX

Come into Bristol on the A4 Bath Road. You'll pass the Brislington Park-n-Ride on your left. Continue over the traffic lights, with McDonalds on your right. After a few hundred yards the road becomes two lanes. Move into the left lane.

Turn left just after Lidl, signposted Bristol Airport and Wells. After turning left move into the right hand lane, signposted Ringroad.

Bear right at the small roundabout and go down the hill. After about a mile, go straight across the next roundabout. After about 1/2 mile you'll come to a major crossroads with the A37. Go straight across this junction, signposted Bishopsworth & Bristol Airport.

After a couple of miles you will come to a very large roundabout. Take the exit for Bishopsworth and continue on this dual carriageway until you reach another smaller roundabout with a van hire depot on the other side.

Turn right at the roundabout into Cater Road.

After the road has curved to the left our premises are a few hundred yards along on the right. Our red 'Caravan Seat Cover Centre' sign is 44ft long, so is clearly visible, as is our 'Reception'.

Welcome! You've found us – hopefully without any arguments!
