Burgley Week

So, Burghley Week is here!

This is the first time The Track House has attended Burghley, or indeed any event in the equestrian field, so we’re full of hope, expectation and trepidation.

Layout of Burghley Horse Trials 2013


We will be based in the Green Living Pavillion, right at the heart of the ‘shopping experience’ at Burghley Horse Trials. This is a pavillion dedicated entirely to companies and exhibitors who make a positive impact on the environment in some way shape or form, and our Cosidor product fits very nicely with that ethos.

Cosidor is a highly efficient and patented door portiere rail that raises and lowers your draught excluding door curtain as the door is opened and closed. Entirely British designed and manufactured, to the highest standards, this quality product feels very much at home at a very ‘British’ event like the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials.

If we don’t see you there, do please get in touch and find out some more about Cosidor and the many other Track House products and services. We do enjoy a good chat, and remember that our showroom (just outside Stratford-upon-Avon) is open Mon-Sat every week – so don’t be a stranger. 

In the meantime, ‘Tally-Ho’ to one and to all.

Our Pre-Loved Curtains

The Track House has a sister company called The Curtain Emporium that specialises in the trading and exchange of second-hand, or pre-loved curtains.

The Curtain Emporium showroom is housed in the same building as The Track House, here in lovely Blackwell, South Warwickshire, and is open to the public 6 days per week.

Curtains come in to the Curtain Emporium for a variety of different reasons – people moving house who have recently purchased new curtains and find that their much loved curtains do not fit their new windows, for instance. Some people buy fully equipped show homes but only wish to keep a few pairs of curtains as they aren’t to their taste, whilst other people change their curtains every so often as a matter of course!

We try to avoid using the term ‘used curtains’ at the Curtain Emporium, preferring to see them as pre-loved and ‘ready for love’ in a new home!

So, next time you’re thinking about changing your curtains why not think about the Curtain Emporium and a visit to our showroom, or a quick look at the selection of curtains and accessories we have online. We’re always happy to see you or to have a chat on the phone!

Our Incredible Neighbours

Incredible what and who you find when you pop out for a pair of curtains!

The Track House might be based in rural South Warwickshire, in the Stratford-on-Avon, Shipston-on-Stour, Chipping Campden triange, but The Blackwell Business Park is home to some amazing businesses. So, while you are here being measured-up by our team of expert fitters and makers, why not pick up a pair of bespoke wrought iron gates from Jason at Wright Wrought Iron, or a beautiful fruit cake from Meg Rivers.

If cake is not your cup of tea, how about some artisan french bakery goods? Right next door is Boulangerie Valentin, and the smell of fresh bread and croissants! 

We also have Cotswold Teak (outdoor and garden furniture), David J Plumb (accountants), Achieve Fitness (useful after the cake and croissants!) and Lightmaster Direct, to name just a few more of our neighbours here in Blackwell. So, next time you’re passing and are thinking about dropping-in . . .

CosiDor from The Track House

This is our patented and rather stylish CosiDor portiere rail, which we are extremely proud of indeed. It was invented and patented by The Track House team here in South Warwickshire, and is manufactured in the UK.

Of course, there are a great many door curtain rails, or door portiere rails out there on the market, but CosiDor is a little different to all the rest. One of the big issues with door fitted curtains is how to approach the challenge of ‘excluding the draughts without the curtain material dragging on the floor and snagging each time the door is opened and closed’. That issue is fully addressed by CosiDor, as the curtain is automatically raised and lowered as the door is opened and closed. This action ensures that draughts are kept out but the curtain doesn’t drag and get dirty and worn along the bottom edge. “Very clever” I hear you cry, and you would be absolutely right!

But, “what happens if my door is recessed?”, you might ask. Well, our clever designers have thought long and hard about that challenge too. Basically, CosiDor can be adjusted and set to rise at whatever point you wish, so it is extremely easy to accomodate the deepest of recessed doors and still retain all of the benefits of this fabulous product. Take a look at the video on the CosiDor page on the Track House website and you will see it all in action.

CosiDor is very easy to fit if you know how to use a drill, a screwdriver and a spirit level, but we do provide detailed instructions and will fit it for you if you prefer.

This is a high quality and extremely robust product, and CosiDor will handle a heavyweight, fully lined curtain with ease.

Let us now what you think?

Introducing . . . Us!

The Track House and our sister business The Curtain Emporium are long established and extremely well-known businesses located in South Warwickshire, but with clients right across The Cotswolds and South Midlands.  The two businesses are very closely related, as all good sisters should be, and are both housed under the same roof in the village of Blackwell – between Stratford-upon-Avon and Shipston-on-Stour. So, a very lovely place to visit any day of the week!

The Track House takes care of all of your curtain and soft furnishing needs, and is a supplier of many of the leading fabric designers’ products. Track House also has a highly skilled fitting, measuring and making team who can visit your home or premises and ensure that your curtains are fitted to the most exacting standards. The Track House has also created, developed and manufactured our own unique door portiere rail, called CosiDor, which is the ultimate in efficient draught exclusion and style. You can find out more on CosiDor on this website.

The Curtain Emporium is the home of a vast range of high quality ‘pre-owned’ curtains, and we trade those products from our extensive showroom on the Blackwell site.

Between the two companies there really is very little that we are likely to be unable to help you with when it comes to curtains and soft furnishing accessories. And, as you might imagine for a business with our ‘track’ record, if we can’t help you we probably know the person who can.

Look at our websites, give us a call or just drop-in and see us!
