Who we are

Ashwell & Co bring vintage charm, hospitality and fashion and combine it with a contemporary eye on sustainability and inclusivity.

Ashwell & Co Newport is a dedicated retail space with a focus on handpicked vintage fashion, sustainable bridalwear (from the 1900s – 1980s) and accessories crafted by independent designers.


Established in 2014 in Bristol by husband and wife team, Kate and Will, the original Ashwell & Co combines a popular tearoom serving handmade afternoon teas alongside authentic vintage fashion and bridalwear.

Kate’s true love of vintage was born when she moved to Camden as a student. She really valued the ability of vintage to allow her to have something that no one else did. She is now never happier than when she is at a flea market at the crack of dawn on a sunny Sunday morning!

What we do

Ashwell & Co is built on the principles of sustainability, reusing, recycling and keeping it local.

Kate searches high and low for the best vintage around, keeps and eye on the latest trends and handpicks every single piece that finds it’s way on to the shop floor.

Ashwell & Co also provide a friendly, relaxed service for those looking for a unique and sustainable wedding outfit. We have one of the largest curated collections of vintage wedding dresses in the UK.

Our dedicated team of alterations and restoration experts ensure our vintage pieces are in tip top condition. This also means we offer a comprehensive alterations service and can size garments to fit.
