Hygge by Jensen's (Jensen being a family name from our Danish ancestors) was established in April 2017. We are a mother, daughter (and puppy!) team based at Kirkharle Courtyard in the heart of rural Northumberland. Our concept is based on the Danish ritual of enjoying life's simple pleasures. We sell a range of home, lifestyle and gift items from homemade small batch Soy candles and wax melts (made on the premises) in fragrances such as Rhubarb & Custard, Bergamot & Ginger and various others, to a range of kitchenware, artisan glassware, furniture and soft furnishings. We also run Summer fairs and Christmas fairs at Kirkharle Courtyard and hold a range of workshops with different local hosts.
We chose to open Hygge by Jensen's at Kirkharle Courtyard as we were interested in being based in a rural setting, and we are lucky to be trading from The Old Stables in the courtyard within a few seconds from the lake walk amongst the history of Capability Brown. We are fortunate to work alongside several independent artisan workshops based around the courtyard . Each day is different at Kirkharle - for instance - one day I'm pouring candles, the next I am rescuing a sheep stuck on it's back!
