Curtains!

We've just bought a property near Cheltenham and wondered if anyone could offer advice regarding curtains. We are completely renovating the cottage and could do with not paying John Lewis prices on 10 pairs of curtains of varying sizes. Any tips re:a good person/shop to know would be really appreciated. I'm new to mumsnet, so if it tells you I don't have kids, I most certainly do - it's my technical ability at fault. Hence, i can't make my own curtains. The shame!

these people have the best prices I have seen for made to measure curtains. Or look for adverts in parish magazine or equivalent (but be aware that a lot of the cost is in the fabric, so the answer is to choose cheaper fabrics)

We've got a parish mag in the car, so I'll definitely have a look. Thanks for that.
