Probably the best way to judge a company is not by what it promises in sales literature or on a website, but by what its customers say. You see, it’s not what we do, but the way that we do it that sets us apart. It’s our focus on delivering the very highest standard of service with a personal touch that really makes the difference.

The following reviews have all been verified by Houzz – the world’s largest home design and renovation platform.

Lesley really is an artist. She has a knowledge and understanding of fabric which enables her to make beautiful curtains of the highest quality, together with a feel for colour which produces beautiful cushions and complementary accessories. We had curtains made a few years ago. This revitalised our house. Sadly we are now moving. Needless to say, Lesley was top of my list to contact for curtains for our new house. Can I also put in a word for the skilful team that support her in the making of the curtains.

I thoroughly recommend Cotswold Curtains & Interiors. They are a lovely team. Incredibly efficient and Lesley has an excellent eye for design. They have made many sets of curtains for me and they still look as good as the day they were hung. The showroom has a huge selection of sample books so a great resource when navigating your way through the choice of fabrics, trimmings and curtain poles.

Lesley did a fantastic job for a large country house in Gloucestershire. She made beautiful curtains throughout, window seats, blinds, and a pelmet for a bed. Very professional and highly recommend.

I’ve known Lesley for more than 20 years and she has made all the curtains in our home as well as those for lots of my friends. She is highly efficient and makes great suggestions on what would suit a room/style. Always so friendly, dependable and just great to have in my life!

We have used the services of Cotswold Curtains on several occasions now and would recommend them without hesitation. We have always been satisfied with the standard of work and the range of fabrics offered. In addition we have been able to ask Lesley’s advice on other projects in terms of colour coordination and fabrics. There was an issue with one set of curtains caused by incorrect information from the fabric supplier, this was rectified with the minimum of fuss and at no cost to ourselves.Orders were always delivered on time. 10/10.

We have been immensely satisfied with our contact with Cotswold Curtains and Interiors. We needed curtains for most of the windows in our Grade II listed Victorian rectory and searched online for a company that could do that.
From the outset we have had prompt personal attention from Lesley and her team. They have shown a sensitive appreciation for the property we live in, and gave us a huge choice of fabrics and ideas. They were entirely respectful of our personal tastes and requests. We are extremely pleased with the finished results, and have received many compliments from friends on the quality of the work and the appropriateness of the fabrics.

I was delighted when a friend recommended I try Lesley Douro of Cotswold Curtains
& Interiors some years ago. The work is top class and they always quote sensible
prices and s tick to them. They have done a whole range of work and supplied
some excellent fabrics.

Lesley always offers her time and expertise be it in the shop when first discussing ideas and fabric choices, and also when she comes to the house to look at the area being curtained/upholstered. She is always welcoming and has a terrific range of materials and accessories, she seems to be always on top of the latest designs and trends. She listens, but is unafraid of giving creative and practical solutions too. The quality of the various curtains she has made for me is exceptional and bring many comments as to how lovely they are. Finally, her time frames for making and fitting are realistic and always punctual and she personally comes and fits to check everything is as it should be. I couldn’t recommend her and her team at Cotswold Curtains and Interiors more.

Lesley Duro of Cotswold Curtains and Interiors has made fabulous Curtains and blinds for me over the years.

The attention to detail is exceptional, to produce curtains and blinds that are both lined and inter lined. Lesley will give what ever style you choose the wow factor, whether it is traditional (I like swags and tails) to minimalist in style.

Delivery is timely and professional and at the agreed budget.

An extremely professional and friendly service at all times, happy to visit the premises to measure if you are uncertain and very helpful in any decision making too, a 100% trustworthy couple who I would recommend to anyone of my good friends.

I have bought fabric from Lesley on numerous occasions over the past few years and found her really helpful with choosing designs. She has an excellent selection of fabric and wallpaper books, and blinds etc.
When my long time (16 years) curtain maker passed away unexpectedly, Lesley became an obvious choice to go to for some new curtains and blinds. Initially I had her make a pair of full-drop curtains and a “box” cushion for a seat in our study (with fabric which I supplied), together with a roller blind.

I was so pleased with the service, price and quality of her work that I have since had her make up another full drop curtain for a door, a padded roman blind and a window seat cushion for the dining room and three seat cushions for the kitchen chairs.

Lesley is really friendly to work with, happy to make suggestions on fabrics etc if required, and will happily come out and measure up. Her and her teams work is excellent and all the work I have had done has been beautifully made and finished off. She has a brilliant system for booking in clients so she can tell you straight away when your order will be ready – and it will be. Most importantly I have found her prices to be extremely reasonable. Her work has really enhanced the appearance of our three rooms.

I would not hesitate to recommend her and will certainly be using her again.

I have used Lesley at Cotswold Curtains & Interiors for a number of years and have always found them to be helpful, efficient and very knowledgeable. Their curtains and blinds are made by hand and look beautiful when finished. I don’t use anyone else for my curtains now.

CC&I made us some lovely curtains and blinds for our 18th century house. They did a beautiful job with a pretty modern material from Timorous Beasties for a large blind. We really love it. The net curtains that Leslie chose for us are really lovely. Our other curtains also gorgeous, full with great linings. They also have a large range of materials to choose from in the shop. Fitter was also very nice to deal with and he did a great job, very quick and easy. Very Happy.

I have been using Cotswold Curtains and Interiors for all of my soft furnishing needs for the last 20 years. They recently made a set of stunning curtains for my bedroom in London. The finished result is very luxurious and meticulously sewn. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.

When my husband and I first visited Lesley’s Showroom, we were very impressed with how neat, tidy and well laid out this was with lots of fabric choices. Lesley was very friendly but professional and came out to measure for our curtains and roman blinds in addition to which we had some dining chair seats re-covered. Lesley noted our decor and took note of our budget requirements which enabled her to make a selection of fabric books to show us. This helped us enormously as the choice of fabrics is immense. The curtains and roman blinds were hung by Lesley this week and we are delighted with the finished product. They look lovely and the work is excellent. We would have no hesitation in recommending Lesley.

I cannot recommend Cotswold Curtains & Interiors highly enough. Our current home is the second home Lesley has worked with us on and in both cases we have been thrilled with the results.

Lesley has a fantastic range of fabrics, blinds, shutters etc., to choose from. The range caters to all tastes and budgets and Lesley has great intuition and manages to pin-point exactly what you’re looking for. There is no up sell just great guidance and respect for your budget.

The quality of the made up curtains and cushions is superb and Lesley coordinates the installation of tracks and poles etc., so there is nothing to do. Unless you want to. Our curtains and cushions are just stunning, we receive so many positive remarks from guests.

Lesley’s eye and attention to detail are second to none. She has a great insight into what you’re looking for and throughout the entire process the service is wonderful, including any advice on maintenance and care are cheerfully provided.

We keep going back to Cotswold Curtains & Interiors because they are simply the best. In fact they’re working on some blinds and cushions for us right now!

P.P. June 2017
Lesley is a consummate professional, I trust her opinion and extensive experience implicitly, I have commissioned her on 2 projects in my home, she has completed on time and her finish is beautiful, I am aware that she is involved in considerably bigger project,s but she gave mine equal attention , thanks Lesley.

When we moved from London to Gloucestershire we were in urgent need of curtains and blinds to all of our windows and what a find Cotswold Curtains & Interiors was! A totally refreshing experience from the word go. The materials selection in their showroom is vast, together with practical examples of all the various styles of curtains and blinds. There was even a toy box to keep the kids busy while my husband and I discussed our project. Lesley, the proprietor, is charming and friendly, her expertise phenomenal and her guidance and advice on colours and styles invaluable. After we made our choices the process of measuring, producing and installing went smoothly, exactly to schedule and precisely as quoted. No delays and no hidden extras! And the result? Wonderful curtains, blinds, window seats and cushions that are precisely what we dreamed of and the envy of our friends and family.

Dear Lesley
A very belated thank you for my lovely curtains. They have been much admired and give me great pleasure, especially when drawn in the evenings, when the silk shines in the light and looks sumptuous and rich!
With sincere good wishes.

Lesley is the Best!
Lesley/Cotswold Curtains have made amazing curtains and blinds for me/my family on a few occasions over the years.
In these days when few things are made to last, it is so nice to experience handiwork of such top quality, and to enjoy curtains and blinds that stay in such good shape for years and years! We couldn’t recommend them more highly.
