Rhug Estate welcomes new tenants

The Rhug Estate has welcomed new tenants on to the Estate; Calon Kitchens has opened a new workshop in the Old Forge Building where they will build their bespoke handmade kitchens and furniture.

Calon Kitchens is Tony Jones’ family business with over 30-years of experience.

The team of local craftsmen build individually designed furniture, made to measure and handcrafted to the highest standards.

Tony Jones said: “Rhug Estate is the perfect location for Calon Kitchens as the Old Forge lends itself well to being a workshop for our team of local craftsmen to work in.

“It also provides us with a shop window. Visitors to Rhug will be able to see our team building bespoke kitchens and watch the detail that goes into every piece of furniture we produce.”

Calon Kitchens was split between Cerrigydrudion and Llangollen but Tony Jones has now moved all elements of his business to Corwen.

Emma Story, estate manager at Rhug said:

Lockdowns forced our estates team out of occupied properties and on to one of our longer-term projects which is to develop the commercial units we have available to let.

“The first unit to get some attention was the Old Forge situated at the far end of our farm shop car park.

“We’ve taken our time to find the right tenant, letting the space out to pop-up shops in the interim and we’re very pleased to welcome Calon Kitchens here as our new tenant.”

“Tony and his team’s workmanship is well worth a trip to Rhug to appreciate and we love that you can ask to watch your kitchen and furniture items being made in the workshop.

“We’d like to encourage more of this type of offering at Rhug, where local businesses showcase their produce and customers can come and view the whole process.”
