Andrew & Henrietta

A design brief to create a sumptuous bathroom in a rural retreat was beautifully achieved by incorporating luxurious fittings alongside historic features. Ribble Valley Bathrooms was recently tasked by clients Andrew and Henrietta, to design a bathroom and cloakroom for a beautiful, exclusive Boutique Retreat in Settle, North Yorkshire.

A True Yorkshire Bathroom


It was important to reuse original features of the barn in order to retain the charm of the original building. We selected matt sanitaryware, a Pietra Gris marble worktop along with matt black Italian brassware, a soft palette to complement the surroundings and let the original features of the barn sing.

“For me entering Ribble Valley Bathrooms showroom makes me feel like a ‘child in a sweet shop’! There are so many varied and inspiring bathroom/shower/vanity displays (which I must add change regularly keeping up to date with current trends and new products).
– Andrew & Henrietta

“I have worked with Sophie on my Boutique Retreat: Hartley Hare Barn to create a stunning bathroom and cloakroom. Sophie provided excellent advice, friendly and courteous service and extensive product knowledge which was all delivered in a very calm and professional manner. We managed to use modern styling in a historic setting which included a wooden boskin; a listed artifact intrinsic to the barn, to great effect. 

As a result of the overall wonderful experience my husband and I have now decided to upgrade our own master ensuite. Back to the Sweet Shop – Ribble Valley Bathrooms the one stop showroom for our whole refurbishment. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!”
