How did Toad Hall Interiors come about?
We are Kate and Neil Edgeley and Toad Hall Interiors was born out of a happy accident.
One day Mr Toad (Neil) said I should come and take a look at this shop that was available so I went along and, although neither of us were looking to start a retail business we both fell in love with the location something spectacular, quirky, fun and unusual where we could offer unique, quality items that our customers would love as much as we do.
We have a "passion not profit" policy when it comes to adding to our stock. If it fits with the Toad Hall ethos we bring it in and make the price work for our customers.
We want shopping at Toad Hall Interiors to be an experience and the Toadettes are here to help make it fun.
Meet the Toadettes

Moley is good natured, thoughtful and adaptable and will go out of her way to guide you to the perfect item that you never knew you needed until you visited Toad Hall Interiors. Shop superstar and chief card buyer.
Badger is a solitary type who likes to keep himself to himself which is why he only appears at Toad Hall on a Friday. With clear morals and a respect for rules, Badger can always be relied upon. He can also be found loitering in the car park in order to get ladies in distress out of tight spots.....
