Established in 1974, Ashton House is a family run gift shop in the heart of Hersham Village.

Ashton House was opened in November 1974 by Margaret and her sister-in-law Annie as a cookware and gift shop, at our original premises in Hampton Hill. We moved to Hersham in 1999 and have been serving the Hersham community with quality gifts ever since.


Over the years our style has evolved to meet the needs of our customers and from the input of the subsequent generations of the family.

The shop has been run for many years by Margaret’s daughters Nicola and Debra. Margaret, although now retired is still often in the shop lending a hand! Nicola and Debra themselves are now in a sort of semi- retirement and the next generation is sharing the duties of running the shop.

Debra's daughter Kerry and Nicola's Daughters Rosie and Polly are now the faces you will see when you call in to the shop. They have grown up in the business and are bringing their own ideas and skills to keeping Ashton House a thriving and interesting place to visit.

We are very much a family team that enjoys bringing you new, exciting and different gifts, accessories and beautiful homewares.
