Our Testimonials

Jac and Cliff

Anna listened to our requirements really carefully and came up with a beautiful plan. We went from a 3 bedroomed, one bathroom house with a tight staircase in the middle of the house, to one with two bathrooms, a completely new stairwell extension and large utility area with extra loo. Anna also provided us with plans to convert above the large double garage, which we’ve been living in since the start of the house conversion. We’re not quite finished yet, but it’s absolutely stunning.

Anna’s sage advice and guidance at the start of the project meant that planning was granted very quickly - not bad for a 1760s farm worker’s cottage in the Derbyshire Dales.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Anna and we would thoroughly recommend her.

Anna has prepared plans for an extension for our barn conversion and successfully gained planning permission. We have found her very approachable, professional and always responsive to our questions and requests. We would definitely recommend Anna for her local knowledge and clear communication.

Matthew Sidwell

Anna has taken us on the journey for our extension, from a few initial concepts, through planning approvals and on to building regs drawings and has been fantastic throughout. Always quick to respond and happy adapt the design as things developed. We've met a few of the builders Anna works with regularly and would also highly recommend them as a complete team. Hopefully we'll get the build off the ground one day so we can see the fruits of Anna's efforts!

Jamie Rowlston

Anna and Mick were able to provide superb assistance and guidance in our route to obtaining planning permission for our house extension. They were polite and patient when we were trying to work out exactly what we were wanting the end product to look like.

We were particularly appreciative of being offered alternative suggestions and ideas to the building extension's shape. Anna was able to think of ideas that we had not even considered!

The visual impressions of how the extension could look after completion of the build were so lifelike it really added to the quality of service they offer!

Overall we cannot fault the service and quality of work we had received to achieve our accepted planning permission.

Thank you Anna and Mick.

David Frederickson

Anna was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. She helped us realise our vision of an extension to our house (in the place of an old jerry-built garage) in a Peak Park conservation area. She is clear, straightforward and professional and her plans translated onto the ground without a hitch. She also knows the local building industry and recommended a contractor who did a great job for us.

Billy Underwood

This was my first foray into using an architect but Anna has been great, very forthcoming with ideas and advice regarding planning applications and all manner of related things, and basically held our hands through the entire process. The drawings she provided were amazing. Would definitely recommend!

Ian Keeton

We engaged Anna to supply her services for a proposed extension and improvements to our bungalow in Tansley. We were impressed with the service she offered and was prompt and pleasant to deal with. She produced some initial proposals which we would have been happy to develop. For a number of reasons we have decided not to proceed with any works for the time being but will not hesitate to re-engage Anna if we decide to continue.

David Walker

Anna was very responsive and quickly understood what we wanted in converting our old property. Her approach was both professional and friendly and she opened our eyes to other ideas. We felt the charges were very reasonable and the plans were delivered as promised. We would not hesitate to use Manning Holden Architects again.
