Escape to the Chateau Case Study
Celebrity Garden Paving
This wonderful series follows the adventures of Dick and Angel Strawbridge and their two young children as they renovate a derelict French chateau and its extensive grounds and outbuildings.
Now in its sixth series, the programme follows the trials, tribulations and successes of this inspiring couple as they renovate their home and run a successful business.
Westminster Stone are thrilled that Angel chose our aged National Trust Hidcote Flagstones for part of their latest renovations. We supplied 25 tonnes of paving which is seen arriving at the Chateau (in Episode 3) and laid to the front of the property to form a stunning new terrace.
The soft cream and buff colouring and gentle aged appearance form the perfect backdrop to period properties and has rightly made Hidcote flagstones one of our best sellers.
National Trust Paving Collection
Hidcote Flagstones create a rich, open-textured paving full of the character and tradition of the National Trust’s Hidcote Manor for which they are named. Located near Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire, it is one of the best-known and most influential Arts and Crafts gardens in Britain, with its linked “rooms” of hedges, rare trees, shrubs and herbaceous borders.
These time-worn flagstones have been authentically reproduced in fine detail from authentic Cotswold flagstone original masters, ensuring that all of the unique character is captured and reproduced. These beautiful National Trust Flagstones create a rich, open-textured weathered paving full of the character and tradition of The Cotswolds, and are the ideal choice for creating your own informal, traditional gardens.
If you're interested in exporting Westminster Stone paving or flooring to France or any other country please get in touch, telling us briefly about your project.
