About Us

Cottage Lane was founded by us - Janette Jeffares and Helen Sibbick. 
Our aim was to give our customers quality gift  choices at an affordable price, with the best customer service we could provide. 
We opened on April Fools Day 1994 in a very small shop just 3 metres wide by 11 metres long. 
After a few years we moved to much larger premises, enabling us to stock a more diverse range of product - most recently, clothing. 

We love fashion, whether it is clothing, homewares or giftware. This is reflected in our carefully curated collections. Our stock contains quality brands that we are proud to wear, or buy for our own homes.

Our focus is to give our customer excellent choices , and excellent customer service.  As we well know, every body is unique, and we want to offer clothing that becomes ‘go to ‘ wardrobe  pieces.

 We are fortunate indeed to have Brenda help us in our physical shop. She has an amazing eye for what colours and shapes suit every ‘body’.

Come in and say hello , and if you can’t , you are invited to browse our online shop and find something just perfect for you.
