Our Testimonials

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.

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.

Manning Holden Architects helped us to visualise our plans to extend our home. From the initial meeting right through to the planning stage, Anna helped us by providing advice and suggestions. We haven't yet started the build work, though the plans look amazing. I'd have no hesitation to recommend Anna to anyone looking at a home extension.

Matthew Howe, Wilson Howe Accountants ()

Anna is a great Architect, very knowledgeable and understanding of our requirements and delivered what we asked for and a lot more. No hidden charges and a very straight forward process.

We were impressed by Anna's website and made contact via email. She responded quickly to our enquiry, and even though lockdown made things slightly tricky we were quickly able to arrange an initial meeting. Throughout the process we really enjoyed working with Anna. We were impressed by her ability to really listen to our needs and yet offer a creative response to the challenges of extending in a sensitive site, which would definitely enhance our home. We loved her final design options which showed she had really understood our requirements and our design preferences. We would certainly engage Anna again for any future architectural projects.

In 2020 we decided we would like to extend our home and I asked about architects in the area. Manning Holden Architects were recommended to me from numerous people.
When I called Anna she visited within the limitations of the covid restrictions at that time and spoke to us about the packages she could offer.
Anna then visited further times to measure and draw current layouts and 2 options for extension and pressed forward for us with the planning permission for our preferred choice and engaged the local planning department from the outset. With this input and a keen understanding of what would be feasible, our plans were submitted and approved in a short timeframe.
Anna has always responded to emails and calls promptly and adjusted plans as necessary within agreed timescales. I have had no concerns in any aspect of this work and we now hold full planning permission. Anna made this process flexible and calm.
I would recommend Manning Holden Architects to anyone interested in renovations and extensions without question.

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.

We contacted Anna to help us with the design of our garage / work studio project . We were very impressed by her ideas and professional approach . We found working on this design with Anna very enjoyable and stress free . She produced everything we asked for in a clear and easy way for us to visualize and gave us great advice . The work was delivered on schedule and we felt in safe hands . We will definitely work with Anna again for our next project !

I recently used Manning Holden Architects to create the plans for our house extension. As my first foray into building work I didn't really know what plans etc I'd need but from day one Anna was extremely helpful with everything. She talked me through exactly what it was I'd need and you certainly aren't left in any doubt she knows what she's talking about. The plans/3D drawings produced for me were excellent and the builders I've since approached with these have all had no problems in providing me quotes and knowing exactly what is is we wanted with the extension. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Manning Holden Architects to anyone else!!
