What our customers say
A supremely helpful and professional service from start to finish. The showroom staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. The stock is fantastic - really worth a look. The carpet fitter arranged by Carlton Lord was their own and did a perfect job. Highly recommended and to top it off, they're independent.

Carleton Lord Carpets was established in 1962 and we’ve traded in Bridgwater and the surrounding villages ever since. We were originally based at a small shop on Penel Orlieu until a fire destroyed the premises during the miners’ strike in 1972. We then moved to a Grade 2 listed building in Chilton Street, first built as a flour mill by Spiller’s of Bridgwater but subsequently used for other activities including cider making and basket manufacture. In 2008, we relocated to a trade unit at East Quay.
It's a family business, run by Stephanie and Carleton Lord since 1981, and they’re still very much involved with the day-to-day operation of the business. We have lots of carpet and vinyls in stock along with hundreds of remnants.
Our 60+ years in the industry have made us experts in our field and we pride ourselves on finding the right flooring at the right price for each individual customer. Our success is built on word of mouth and recommendation, and we’ve built a strong reputation for quality and customer service (in some cases, we’ve worked with 3 generations of the same family!). For your peace of mind, we’re affiliated with the Office of Fair Trading and abide by their consumer code of practice.
