ALL ABOUT THE BABY BARN
30 Years of Trading

A Lifetime of Experience
The Baby Barn has been the leading Baby Equipment Store in Warwickshire since 1993.
The shop was founded by Sue and Ian when their eldest child, Lottie, was just 9 months old! Now, a grown woman, you will find Lottie in store helping her parents with her little boy, Freddie, taking the role of chief tester! Funny how things come around!
Customer service and fantastic presentation have always been the number one priority and with a team of customer-oriented staff and a wide selection of affordable products, The Baby Barn really is a one-stop-shop for all your needs.
The experienced sales team are committed to helping you find the right products to bring your nursery visions to life. Whether you’re looking for a simple pram accessory, a gift for a friend or you want to totally deck out your nursery and car, The Baby Barn is where you need to be.
Meet The Family
Sue is the beating heart of the business and we are very lucky to have her.
Along with Ian, she founded the business after starting a family. When she was pregnant with Lottie she found there wasn't much choice to view baby equipment in the area. With the farm still running, Sue & Ian bought some buildings off the farm to start the shop...30 years later they are still there and still expanding the store!
Nothing means more to Sue than her family and that includes her staff and customers!
(Except her Jack Russell, Pickle & Tinks!)
Master handy man, chief stock checker and official cake taster!
Ian has been by Sue's side since the beginning and even helped convert the original barn into the shop!
You'll see Ian around the store, bringing your items through from our warehouse in-between raiding the cake and biscuits in the coffee shop!
A true family man and a real happy face, Ian is always on hand to help!
Going from head product tester at 9 months old to her parents right hand woman at 30, Lottie has always been part of The Baby Barn.
After working for the Riding for the Disabled Association for a number of years, she came back to the business during the COVID pandemic to help and has never left!
Lottie's passions are her animals and she is keen to pass that on to the next generation with her sons, Freddie & Charlie
Ben is the younger of the Dronfield siblings. As well has running his own Telecoms Business, he is our relief delivery driver and helps out in the warehouse and with maintenance of the store.
When he isn't travelling the world he absolutely loves to tease Lottie and cause mischief with his nephews!
