“Like many people making the move from London to Bath, we spent a lot of time looking at all of the options and types of housing stock. A new build was definitely not first on the list as we did not want the feeling of buying something characterless or run of the mill especially in a city with such beautiful houses. We had looked at Charlcombe Homes houses on the internet whilst in London before we moved but did not actually look seriously until some time in Bath, and perhaps the only regret we have is not looking earlier. Our first impressions were hugely enhanced by the fact that owners of other house were delighted to let John show us around and were independently happy to talk in glowing terms of their experience. Our experience of designing and building our home with John, Alastair and the team has been similarly excellent and we really could not have had better partners. Even when designing a house within some defined parameters there are many decisions to make and the team were incredibly patient, always full of ideas and enduringly tolerant of our changing minds!! The most impressive aspect, however, was the attention to detail and focus on quality throughout the experience – I remember John saying clearly that he wanted to build houses they are proud of and we can only support that desire with our experience in practice. We have been fortunate to watch the journey of our house through many visits over the months – now it is finished we appreciate the detail and quality which has gone into it; the finishes are excellent, the house incredibly warm, solid and soundless and the small touches and thought in design add to our love for the place we now live. We have previously experienced the frustrations of working with the building trade but our experience of working with the team at Charlcombe has been absolutely excellent in every respect and one we thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish.”

“Buying our house from Charlcombe Homes confounded all traditional perceptions of buying a new-build – it was a pleasure and a delight from start to finish. Alastair and John were helpful, down-to-earth, flexible and patient in every dealing with us. And their product more than matched the level of their service – the quality and craftsmanship in every aspect of the build was second-to-none, with assiduous attention to detail creating beauty throughout the house. All created by a team of considerate and friendly builders. We’re reminded of the warm glow of owning our house and from our dealings with Charlcombe Homes every time we fire up the log-burner.”
Jon and Alice Elsom, White Lilac House

“My experience of building a bespoke home with Charlcombe Homes has been a very good one.  The team took the time to understand what I wanted from the house and worked hard to deliver a product that met my expectations.  I found them straightforward to deal with, with strong attention to detail.  Possibly unusually in the building industry, they actually give a damn about delivering a high quality product and a home that you will enjoy living in.  Throughout the project our working relationship was strong and, when issues arose, the team worked creatively and pragmatically to solve them.  Above all, they are just a nice bunch of people to deal with.  I am very pleased with the end result.”

“We are utterly thrilled in every way with our new home. At the time of searching, we were certain we wanted a period property as we were craving character and charm – we ended up buying a brand new property from Charlcombe and got more than we ever expected. The design and layout of our house has been incredibly well thought through and has “wow factor” on every level. We have a number of friends who work in the building trade and the overwhelming feedback we get is that the build quality is exceptional with no expense spared. Despite being a very modern and contemporary property, our house is also very homely.

Since the day of our first viewing right up until now we’ve found the whole team at Charlcombe to be incredibly friendly, professional and helpful. The directors are extremely passionate about their work and seem to demand the highest standards from every supplier they use and every staff member they employ.

For anybody who is nervous about buying off-plan (as we were) – we are very confident that you won’t be disappointed! ”

“I relocated with my family from London to Bath in 2011 and decided to rent until we found the ideal house for us. My wife and I are very keen on contemporary design and, although we looked at all available properties that fitted this description over a long period, none of them was quite right for us. When we saw the Lantern House at the Lansdown Ridge development by Charlcombe Homes we knew that it was the perfect house for us. We also knew that we would have to move very quickly as this is a very rare opportunity in Georgian Bath. We love the design and the clever blend of traditional and modern materials as well as the way that the breathtaking views are maximised by the light and airy nature of the bedrooms and living space. The quality and the finish of the house is excellent and we would thoroughly recommend this development to others.”

“Having recently completed the purchase of my new home from Charlcombe Homes I am writing to express my delight with the transaction.   The staff and, in particular, the directors and foremen were extremely helpful and patient regarding any questions or queries I raised.

Their friendly but professional approach was both courteous and very supportive, and I found nothing was too much trouble.  Every detail had obviously been carefully planned, the property having been finished to a very high standard with quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

The after-sales service I have received has been exemplary and endorses Charlcombe Homes’ commitment to customer satisfaction, and I have no hesitation in recommending them wholeheartedly’.”
