The Hidden Corner is owned by Barbara Morphet. Due to her local roots and connections (some original family photos of which you can see on our background!) Barbara is often offered interesting and sometimes completely unique articles that rarely come onto the open market.
Barbara has been sourcing Antiques for over 10 years, and the tearoom has been running for 7 years due to customer demand. Specialising in antique furniture, the Hidden Corner is in a unique position to display and store these larger items, hitherto only available through large auctions.
When hunting for antiques, the things we look at are quality, age, look, provenance and above all, something that is practical and can be enjoyed by today’s collector. Decorative pieces are always popular, but each piece sourced must always have a purpose; we want our antiques to be loved today as much as the day they were created. Barbara favours rustic pieces that would look at home in any modern interior. Our stock is always changing, so do feel free to pop back anytime.
