It is said that ‘Home is where the Heart is’. Home cooking, playing as a child and the views from the windows all stir fond memories and a sense of nostalgia in us as we recall a time when we were carefree and happy.

In an effort to make our current homes more like the homes we grew up in recent research actually suggests that 1 in 10 of us have replicated décor and furnishings to make them more like the ones from our memories. In the same research three in ten people also said they would love to buy their childhood home and for Pip Hollis she and her husband Neil have been able to do just that.

Based in the village of Ackworth in West Yorkshire the Hollis’ cottage was originally built in the early 19th Century and was Pips family home as a child and her parents’ home for a great many years. Sadly the property was sold a couple of years ago leaving the family’s possession and the large 19th century cottage was divided into 2 dwellings.

When the property came back onto the market recently Pip and Neil were keen to take back this once treasured family home and restore it to its former glory.

In the restoration Neil and Pip’s first order of business was turning the house back into one single family home. The second priority was replacing the uPVC casement windows and doors with sash windows to restore the buildings period features.

A local recommendation was what saw the Hollis’ get in touch with Bereco after Pip admired the windows of a neighbouring development of new homes in the same village where the Bereco Traditional Sash Windows and Classic Entrance doors had been installed.

“I loved the colour and the quality you could just tell the windows were meant to be in those houses; they complimented the designs so well; from there I really had my heart set on having traditional timber sash windows”

Neil and Pip were keen to use traditional materials but the Hollis’ daughter was really instrumental in ensuring her parents chose products for their new home renovation with sustainability in mind. The fact Bereco windows come with a complete chain of custody and use only FSC® 100% certified timber only helped make their decision to invest in timber windows and doors.

The Hollis’ now decided that it was timber sash windows got to choose the finer details of their windows and they opted for dual colour paint finishing with RAL 9016 Traffic white internally to keep the windows neutral for the bold and beautiful colour schemes that were to feature on the interior and the timeless Parchment paint finish from our exclusive Heritage colour range that would complement the buildings original stone perfectly. Satin chrome fittings to match the contemporary furniture that features throughout the home completed the look.

Beautifully constructed windows which do the job perfectly. Handled Covid disruption effectively. Installation went smoothly. All in all a job very well done. Would recommend without reservation.


Visited the showroom last year and impressed with the finish and quality. Just as delighted with the windows and back door that we ordered. They look fabulous.
