Me, Liz Cooke together with Chester my Jack Russell are the founders of Chester & Cooke

Chester & Cooke


Hi - I'm Liz Cooke and this is Chester my Jack Russell - I am the founder of Chester & Cooke.

Back in 2015, life changed dramatically for me and my family. From this adversity and my love of the countryside, I started on a new journey to design and make products for the country lifestyle, eventually for the Home, Garden, Dog, and Horse.

I am passionate about making high-quality, unique products, which are practical and useful. Customer service is so important to me. I feel like my customers are my friends and family as they share a passion with me for country life, gardening, and animals. Everyone gets one of my special handwritten notes. As each order is so appreciated. It's like you're cheering me on. So THANK YOU. Liz X

The story behind the business
Meet Chester & Cooke

In 2015 I gave up my job to look after Simon, my husband, while he was on dialysis. His kidneys failed due to Polycystic Kidney Disease. I stepped in to run the family woodworking business. I can honestly say this was the most stressful time of my life.

On a walk back in 2017, my business idea came to me. Every day I use a boot jack, Simon made me, to prize my wellies from my feet. I decided that I wanted to design & make beautiful country-related products.

My design journey began, slowly to start, until Simon received a kidney transplant in May 2018. Once life settled down, I found time to work on designs. It was a huge learning curve, I look back at how far I have come & feel pretty proud of myself.

My welly racks which are my best-selling product, have even been on ITV with Alan Titchmarsh 'Love your weekend' program.

Personalisation is one of my passions. I love that it turns an item into something unique, it gives emotional connection & joy to look at.

So, I hope you will love my products as much as I love designing & making them for you.
