About Leekes

Leekes was founded on the twin principles of selling quality goods and delivering excellent customer service. And in the intervening century since we first set up shop our values haven’t changed.

As one of the UK’s leading independent retailers we’ve hundreds of thousands of customers who have enjoyed a breadth of homewares and home improvement products that can only be found in a Leekes home store.

By offering customers an unbeatable choice of furniture for every room in the house, and also being home to the biggest kitchen and bathroom studios you’ll find anywhere, we believe we’ve earned the right to call ourselves ‘the home experts’.

From a humble beginning in South Wales the company now has six department stores. In 2009 Leekes bought Cole’s Home Furnishings, a family-owned chain of furniture stores in the West Midlands to add to the department stores in South Wales and Wiltshire. These stores, and leekes.co.uk, mean that more people than ever are able to shop with Leekes and enjoy the unique experience of a store with everything for the home under one roof.

Leekes Leisure and Retail Group


Leekes was founded at the end of the nineteenth century by James Henry Leeke. Since then it has grown to include four department stores, a Building Centre in Tonypandy and a chain of conservatory concessions.

In 1994 Leekes Retail and Leisure Group bought a golf club in Hensol, in the Vale of Glamorgan. This marked the start of diversification of the business into the leisure industry.

The company then developed the golf club into the Vale Resort which comprises a luxury four star hotel, leisure club, Wales' largest spa and two championship golf courses set in over 600 acres of beautiful parkland.

In 2003, the company announced the purchase of the Hensol Castle estate that adjoins the Vale Resort. The Estate includes a 17th century stately home, an historically important mid-18th century landscaped park, a 15 acre lake and serpentine pond. The castle is currently being developed into a world class spa hotel and outlying villas have been refurnished and sold as private residences.
