About Us

Welcome to our new website! We are celebrating our 30th Birthday in 2024!

We now have hundreds more products on line with new ranges and new suppliers. We will be adding even more products to the website over the next few weeks, so please come back and see us on a regular basis.

La Cookshop is an independent Cookshop that can specialise and seek out the unusual items that you may be having difficulty finding. If you have a request for a particular item that you cannot find then please send an email to sales@lacookshop.co.uk and we will always try to seek out that illusive product

The business started as a dream in 1994 in the University city of Durham. We grew the business and opened a second shop in it present rural location in 2013. The Durham store closed in 2015 and the Milkhope store was able to expand.

Our shop at the Milkhope Centre opened in February 2013. The Milkhope Centre was established in 1986 by Lord Ridley of the Blagdon Estate. A converted set of farm buildings were converted into business units and the centre has evolved since then. Here you will find a group of businesses that all complement each other. The website represents only a fraction of what our Milkhope store stocks. Visit www.milkhope.co.uk for opening times of individual stores.

All of our staff receive product training and use many of the products that we sell. Only by using items can anyone sell with confidence the products in store. We aim to offer service and value all year around and would be delighted to see you in store on your next visit to Northumberland.

Our brands include Le Creuset, Stellar and Prestige as well as Joseph Joseph, Tala and Cuisinart and Kitchenaid, strong brands delivering great quality.

We have been very excited to expand our selection of products over the last few year, so now you will find accessories for men and women and great gift ideas. Our strong portfolio of brands now include Swole Panda men’s socks, Miss Sparrow for ladies, leather handbags from a variety of suppliers, jewellery from Watch this space and Glynart, and we are proud to say that all our everyday greetings cards are designed and manufactured in the UK. There is so much to see you need a visit.

Why not sign up to our website newsletter and we will keep you informed about all the exciting things happening in the future, including exclusive online offers for returning customers and vouchers for use in our stores.
