We’ve had a busy few months at Anvil Cottage Crafts. Not only has Stuart been hard at work in the forge making our handcrafted Horseshoe Gifts and accessories but behind the scenes we’ve been planning our new website. It’s finally here and we are so excited to be able to introduce it to you.
On our new website not only can you buy our artisan pieces but for the first time you can also hire a selection of our beautiful items for weddings, parties and events. Buy or hire, the quality is the same. We are known for our stylish and organically distinctive items inspired by the natural shape of the horseshoe.
Made from new and used horseshoes, no two pieces are the same. A must for horse lovers and equestrian enthusiasts, while also appealing to those looking to add some country cottage style to their home or event. Our pieces make ideal gifts and lasting mementos.
Introducing our new website
Let’s have a gallop through our new website, or you might prefer a slow trot…
Beautiful handcrafted Horseshoe Gifts & Accessories from Anvil Cottage Crafts
You’ll find us nestled on the banks of the river Great Ouse, close to Ely and not far from Cambridge and Newmarket, where we get a lot of our horseshoes. The tradition of the forge is central to Anvil Cottage Crafts. Our rustic style items combine the ancient craft of the blacksmith with modern day engineering techniques. Discover more about our story.
Browse our website for stylish hire items, attractive upcycled gifts and home accessories or practical items that last for years. Here’s just a taste of what we offer:
- Practical and stylish items for the home
Our items for the home are simply perfect for a first-time buyer, a cosy family home or those that love country living. Our artisan home items include a heart candle holder, doormat, bootjack, fruit bowl, key rack and wall art words, all made from horseshoes. You can even give your horse a stable name sign to make them feel right at home!
Both functional and stylish, our items not only look good but are really useful. What better way to store your drinks than in a horseshoe wine rack. Crafted from horseshoes, the wine rack is then buffed and sprayed with a clear lacquer so it will show off your favourite bottles of wine beautifully. You can choose from racks that hold 3 or 5 bottles. This item will get all-year-round use and be much admired by visitors to your home.

From birthdays to anniversaries and weddings, our pieces make perfect gifts.

Create a memory of your horse that lasts forever
There is such a precious bond between a horse and its owner. When the time comes to say goodbye, it is certainly heart breaking. At Anvil Cottage Crafts, we can create a truly unique memorial piece to commemorate the passing of your much-loved companion.
Our linked hearts could be the ideal way to remember your treasured horse. Lovingly handcrafted in our forge from your horse’s shoes, we clean them sympathetically ensuring the history remains. We take care of your horseshoes and return by signed for post. Make your memories last forever with our linked hearts keepsake.
- Stylish country style festive decorations
Christmas is closer than you think! It will soon be time to start planning how to decorate your home and think about where to get the tree. A unique tree for any horse lover or those who like something stylishly different, our horseshoe Christmas tree is made with new shoes buffed and finally lacquered to prevent rust.
You can choose from 3, 4 or 5 tier Christmas trees. What’s more, unlike traditional cut trees which drop their pine needles, ours last. You can use your tree all-year-round, some people use them as fireplace covers or as garden art.
