About

Hunnypot Cottage Designs is a steadily growing cottage industry. We are a family of crafters – it’s been passed down for, well, generations – and believe that learning basic life-skills is not only a necessity, but also a great way to relax and unwind in today’s technologically complicated world.

We aim to keep our food as homemade and healthy as possible – we make our own pasta, bread – even baked beans – using ingredients we source locally where possible. Making meals from scratch doesn’t take as long as you might think.

Even Hunnypot Cottage is a fabulous example of crafting techniques. Built in the 1860’s when craftsmen were experimenting with different techniques, the cottage is an example of brick build.

Artisan baker Ruth is helped with baking and crafting by her two children, while husband Ian is more often than not running a stall at one of the local craft fairs or delivering bread to homes and farm shops in our local communities of Elford, Tamworth, Sutton Coldfield and Lichfield

Ruth is a registered childminder, volunteer scout leader and avid networker. She loves Winnie the Pooh, buts doesn’t actually like honey.
