Radiators – not just for winter


As spring is finally upon us there will be many households having the debate about whether or not to turn the central heating off. However, what we can all agree on is that we love our towels warm and dry when we step out of the shower, even in the summer!

Sadly a standard towel radiator will not dry our towels once the central heating is switched off, cue the dual fuel electric element.  A dual fuel electric element is installed into your radiator, so that it can be run off the central heating in the winter and the electricity in the summer.  The element will provide enough heat to dry your towels without heating the room, perfect for those warmer days!

If you would like any further information on dual fuel, please give us a call or pop into our Cheltenham showroom, where we can talk you through all of the beautiful ranges available from companies such as JIS and Bisque.

Pittville Spas


While we are lucky to have some of the best destination spas in the UK in the Cotswolds, you simply can’t beat having your own personal oasis at home. Being able to train, entertain, rehabilitate and relax in complete privacy – and style – isn’t something many could boast, until now.

Out of our new spa showroom on Battledown Trading Estate, spa seekers, design addicts, aspiring athletes and families looking to have some outdoor fun can experience the world’s first self-cleaning hot tubs and swim spas by Canadian manufacturer Hydropool; the world leader of the hot tub industry with a reputation of excellence and quality that matches Pittville’s own.

Offering fitness on tap in your backgarden, the increasingly popular swim spa is a must for many top athletes and trainers, as well as casual swimmers and families looking for a pool to have fun in. This space-saving training aid is perfect for swimming, cross training, relaxation and rehabilitation; boasting pioneering SwimFlow technology which enables you to swim in place as you would in a full-size swimming pool – without the hefty cost and maintenance. And what’s more, you can adjust the resistance depending on your age, strength and technique for a truly unique and invigorating workout.

The hot tubs, meanwhile, not only provide targeted tension relief tailored to you, but also a host of hydrotherapy and health benefits to help treat everything from arthritis, sports injuries and stress to simple aches and pains. The innovative ‘zone’ jet system creates a stimulating, custom massage which can target specific areas after a workout, increase blood circulation and endorphins, decrease muscle inflammation and more. Not to mention hours of fun and relaxaton!

Both exclusive ranges are entirely self-cleaning, giving you more time to train, entertain or simply relax in style, while the cutting edge insulation system saves money by retaining and reusing heat.

Of course, no Pittville living space would be complete without those enviable design features, and the company’s expert team of designers will create the stylish spa to suit you, whether it be for relaxation, training or family fun, complemented by a wide range of design-led outdoor buildings and furniture to help you achieve your lifestyle ambition in luxury.
