Sarah moved into a house with some Withington Hill stables that are probably 20 years old. They needed a new roof and we were happy to oblige:
"A huge thank you for getting my new roof done so quickly. The lads were the smiliest, most cheerful people that could have done it and I'm missing them already!! They didn't let the rain get them down and cracked on regardless - if there was an award, they should have it!!
Thank you again, the roof is looking fantastic and the mini loosebox and store is beyond what I was hoping for - brilliant! I would not hesitate to recommend Withington Hill, if anyone wants a personal recommendation, tell them to email me!
One happy customer!
All the best,
PS I guess the proof of the pudding is also in the fact that the stables are still in fantastic condition!!"
A huge thankyou to everyone at Withington Hill, from the initial enquiry all the way through sourcing planning advice, design changes, adding a number of finishing touches and the final delivery and build.
This being the last build before the end of 2019,Withington Hill pulled out all the stops to ensure the stables went up in time for the 3 shetlands to be out of the bad weather for xmas.
With planning taking longer than expected and xmas rush looming, Dave and 2 lads from the workshop came to erect the stables followed by the normal site lads that called in to help finish on the way back from a previous build.
The finished outcome stands testament to the effort everybody involved put in to allow us to get these Stables in by Xmas.
Quality built with extra special touches to make it unique to our needs.
100% would recomend to anybody venturing into the equine world or looking to renew. Will definitely be using again in the future.
Thankyou for your help and efforts
I am writing to say that I am extremely satisfied with the American Barn that Withington Hill Ltd designed, supplied and erected for me here at Mill Barn Farm.
The quality of the materials and the workmanship are excellent and the erection of the barn was completed exactly as stated by Dave.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Withington Hill to anyone considering the purchase of a barn or stables.
I would also like to thank Dave for his attention to detail and friendly attention to the success of the project.
Jeff Grey, Lancashire
Just a quick email to let you know how pleased we are with the American Barn that you supplied and erected for us here at the Old Stables in Norfolk.
The process was very easy from start to finish, (even when we kept changing our minds with the size of the Barn), the only issues we had were down to the council!
You and your team worked quickly and hard work on the installation and were professional at all times, being able to get the lorry right close to the base certainly helped!
We will certainly have no problems recommending your company for one of your Barns.
From our first meeting 11 months ago to the completion of our Double Garage recently the above company have been exemplary.
Advice, guidance and construction regarding the finished product has been excellent.
Suffice to say we are delighted with the process and completion of our purchase and cannot emphasise enough our satisfaction with all aspects of our dealings with Dave and his team.
Thank you from all our family.
" We recently ventured into the market of stable building after purchasing a 17 hand horse for our daughter. First impressions were of a an industry keen to charge a maximum price based on the assumption that horse owners had plenty spare to spend. This was until we were introduced to David Williams at Withington Hill. They came highly recommended by mutual association of a customer who had stables built by Withington Hill 10 years ago.
It was obvious from the first site visit that David had a vast amount of experience in this area. He made several recommendations regarding aspect and design and most importantly he came in at a highly competitive price.
Despite poor weather Withington Hill delivered and installed the full stable block by the end of the week that he had promised. He visited the site after they were completed and installed some anti weaving grills we had purchased separately in order to "finish the job".
Would be happy for anyone to inspect his work on our site for reassurance if needed. You will be impressed."
I recently had 2 stables and a tack room built by Withington Hill and from start to finish the whole process was superb, I made the enquiry on 29th August 2017 and they were built 6th September 2017 – now that’s what I call service. Dave and his team were excellent and the stables are fabulous, I cannot recommend this company highly enough. Value for money and quality cannot be beaten, I chose the Excel stables for my horses one is 16.1h and the other 16.3h and the head room is great. If you are looking for a company to build you a stable look no further you will not be disappointed with Withington Hill. Thanks Dave I have two very happy horses!
They are great people to deal with (had my first field shelter off them in 1986). I now have an L shaped stable block from their Excel range (the top one, with extra eave height etc.) I have two 12' x 14' stables, a 12' x16' corner stable and two 8' x 12' tack/feed rooms. Plus two field shelters, one 12' x 20' and one 12' x 30', so have done a lot of business with them! I have had extra windows and talk grilles put in mine, so they are particularly bright and airy.
I just wanted to thank you all again, as you know I was very happy with the first block of stables you built for me in 2001 and then later went on to buy a tow able unit in 2010, this is also excellent, very sturdy and has stood up to us moving it around as the livery yard has grown. Here we are again in 2017 delighted with our latest block of stables. I am very pleased to see your high standards for build and erection and customer service have not dropped over the past 16 years. I have just recommend you to a friend and I will keep on spreading the word.
So pleased I chose you - it was a no brainer considering that our old stable block, which is over 20 years old, was built by Withington HIll and it's still going strong! Testament to your quality...
Absolutely thrilled with the new stable block!
We will be back to you around summer time when we are looking for a garden building!
I am more than happy to recommend Withington Hill, based on their recent work to design, create and install a new cricket pavilion for us at Oxton, Notts. We have been planning the replacement of our old wooden pavilion, which was built in 1953 for the last 10 years, whilst sorting out permissions, the money needed and local consultations over this period so this wasnt a decision we made without careful research and consideration. It was clear from our first contact with Withington Hill that they had the same objectives as we did, to ensure that the final result was going to be superb and that they would ensure the job was completed to everyone satisfaction within an agreed timescale but not rushed. The whole team, from Dave and Cath, the owners down to Tom and his team of installers had the same work ethic, they worked hard and thought outside the box regarding issues that came up that we hadnt anticipated and the whole Club are delighted at the result, which is a fabulous new cricket pavilion. So thanks Withington Hill, in a world where shoddy standards are the norm, you certainly stand out from the crowd!

Sorry I didn't come back sooner but thank you for the paperwork all safely received and submitted to sport England and we have today heard that all is now in place to commence draw down of funds…! (4 years of trying)
I would be delighted to send photos, we are ploughing on with the fitting out can you wait until then or I can send some as they stand now (I'll do that anyway so you can see how it looks now)
Also very happy to provide testimonial we have only the highest regard to how you have delivered our fantastic new pavilion we are planning a formal opening the day at our first home game at the end of April'
'…..On Behalf of Bathford Cricket Club I would like to express our sincere thanks to David and Catherine and the assembly team at Withington Hills for the quality of service provided in supplying Bathford CC's new Pavilion. It is a dream the club has had for the last 10 years. As a small club where funds are tight the patience and commitment of the Withington Hills team as we raised our funds changed designs to appease our neighbours was exemplary. It was never a problem when build dates went back. You are very knowledgeable of the funding process clubs like ours have to go through with organisations such as Sport England and we thank you for your help and advice in achieving our grant. The assembly team were great in very challenging conditions as they battled during the build phase with the tail end of Hurricane Gonzalo. Great guys, polite and dedicated to ensuring a good job was achieved.
I would have no hesitation recommending Withington Hill to other Cricket/Sports clubs in a similar position to Bathford CC.
Many, many THANKS…!

The summerhouse exceeded our expectations, the service was excellent from initial step of what we wanted to completion on site.
I am very impressed with the summerhouse-process. I was offered a choice of designs, quick and courteous attention, prompt delivery and efficient, careful erection on site.
It is a high-standard product already giving hours of pleasure.
I am very impressed with my summer house supplied and erected by Withington Hill. I was offered a choice of designs together with professional and courteous attention. This was followed by prompt delivery and efficient, careful erection on site.
The new summer house is a high-standard product which is already giving hours of pleasure!
Just a short note to pass on my appreciation for the supply of a home office.
All stages of the process from initial inquiry to final assembly were undertaken in a highly professional manner.
I am extremely pleased with the building, which is providing both a practical and pleasant working environment.
Last summer my wife and I decided to purchase a summerhouse for our garden in Disley. We therefore spent about 3 months checking specifications, build quality and prices from various manufactures. We needed a building we could use all year round that that would be cool in summer and warm in winter.
It also had to be an attractive feature in our garden we therefore decided that a fully insulated, double-skinned, double glazed building, with a natural cedar roof was what we wanted.
Once we had decided on this specification the choice was easy because the combination of materials quality, construction standards, service and price made the Withington Hill summerhouse the best value by far.
We also appreciated their approach to our need for wiring to be installed for mains and lighting. They were most helpful and pleased to accommodate all our special requests.
The finished products looks fantastic and has been a talking point with many of our neighbours and house guests. We’ve actually used it far more than we expected because it is a cosy, welcoming environment , even when the British weather is not at its best!
Dear Withington Hill.
Please find enclosed a cheque for $1,000 Owing to you from the build at the above address. May we say Thank you for sending the stain to us. We would like to take this opportunity to say what a fabulous job has been made of the building we are very pleased with everything about it.
At this point we would like to say thank you to team who did the work on erecting the building Shawn Nigel team worked extremely hard were a pleasure to have in the yard. They were all very point very, very hard working. Nothing was too much for then, over though the weather was against them – they never stopped never grumbled.
These men are a credit to your company we will pass your name on to others, once again thank you.
I am writing to thank you and your team for the excellent summerhouse that you recently installed at the above address. The design, construction and value for money are far superior to and which we also considered (and of course innumerable ‘shed’ manufactures, who we quickly discounted!).
We were very specific about the design and colour we wanted. We also had problems and delays with our planning application. Throughout this, your staff were unfailingly patient and helpful. Both teams who came to carry out the construction worked very hard (on three extremely hot days). We would
particularly like to thank Dave and Shaun. Inevitably there were a couple of problems, but they sorted these out efficiently and with good humour.
I commented on the quality of the celling rose patters, which I didn’t feel was of the same high quality as the rest of the construction. This was only meant
as constructive criticism, but Dave promptly redesigned it and bought a new one – very impressive service!
We are delighted with the finished product and several of our friends have already expressed interest in purchasing garden buildings from you. I have enclosed some photographs of the summerhouse, which do not do it justice as the site is still a little raw. If you would like to use pictures of our summerhouse for promotion, when the grass and shrubs have grown back, we would be happy to send you some digital pictures or you would be welcome to come and take your own. We would also be pleased to recommend you to any potential customers.
Once again thank you to all your staff.
I want to thank Catherine, Dave and the team at Withington Hill, for the superb workshop they
Constructed for me. From the inception the idea was tweaked and improved so that when it was
Finally erected in less than two days, the construction was as true and perfect as one could wish
For. The wood was sound and the pre – painted colour just what I asked for.
The staff and fitters are always helpful and courteous and I could not recommend Withington
Hill as a company more highly.
Many thanks and best regards
Where can I begin? I have so much to thank you for. You and your company have far outstripped any of the normal expectations of service that could be reasonably expectedof any company today. Not only were you understanding of the dire predicament in which we found ourselves (needing to find a mobile field shelter for two horses immediately) but you made huge efforts to help us delivering and erecting the shelter so quickly. No other company that we contacted was able to help us in that short period of time.
Ofcourse we were particularly pleased to be able to have Withington Hill shelters because we already knew the high standard of materials and workmanship from the three stables that you supplied last year. These stables have proved to be not only well designed (to satisfy the standards of the Peak Park) but also to withstand the rigours of three large dressage horses.
If you ever have prospective customers who would like to see your stables or field shelters in use then we would be only happy to show them ours. Thank you again for your sterling efforts.
I am writing to congratulate you on a wonderful service, I ordered three stables tack room & hey store eighteen months ago. The service was friendly, polite, efficient & helpful, the stables were put up on time & look fantastic. The quality is wonderful and eighteen months on still look new & have been a joy to work in. If I were to need more stables in the future I wouldn’t hesitate to ask you to do the job, I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Many Thanks.
Just to say thanks for a great job. Your staff really hard to get our stables up. We are delighted with the finished result, they are far too good to put horses in.
Just a short noteto thank you for our new Stable Block.
Having been away from horses a number of years value for money loose boxes with high specification. Quality product and a company with a flexible approach.
Your stables certainly matched our aspirations and more, Great Boxes wornderful service.
Our good wishes for you.
We have had a Withington Hilltype building for quite a number of months now and are absolutely delighted.
We didn’t want a stable as such, eg number of windows etc, but wanted it to look like a stable. This presented no trouble at all to the owner and we were soon accomodated with superb results.
The service was second to none with most obliging people and the minimum of fuss.
We would certainly go to them again should we require anything further.
Thank you for all your help with the arrangements for my Stables, and thank you to the Shaun & Dave for delivering and assembling them. They did a great job.
I’m delighted with the stables and have had lots of positive comments on how well they look and how well they are finished. My horses are very happy in them, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how warm they are inside, particularly given the fact that my site is quite exposed (and the weather has been pretty awful since they were put up).
I know that you asked for comments for your website, and would say
‘Our experience of dealing with Withington Hill Stables was first rate. Despite placing a relatively small order for just two loose boxes , the whole process from ordering to assembly was well organised, with helpful suggestions and frequent informative updates. The Stables themselves have been designed with horses in mind and are of an excellent quality and very good value for money. ’
The “lads” who built our American Barn have just left for homeafter working hard for three very long days. Jane and I wish to convey our thanks to them and to Withington Hill for exceeding our expectations. The American Barn is just fantastic. The quality of the product is far beyond which we expected. We also thoroughly enjoyed having the four lads with us. They could not have been more helpful and took great pride in their work. The end result is just great. Dave (the boss!) also knew all about good customer realtions, even as far as having a beer with the customer at the local after work (on the customer of course!!). You were also the ONLY company who offered to send us a drawing of the building, which actualyy made the planning application a complete breeze.
Jane and I would be more than happy to provide a "reference site" for anyone who wants to see an American Barn built by your company, either on teh phone or to come and visit.
I attach two photos of the finished article. We will send you some more when we have finished the yard properly - but that won't be for a few months(money is running out at the moment!)
I also attach a photo of the "team" - just to give you all a laugh!
Thank you all for making a 15 year old dream come true.
I have just had your company to supply me with stables for the third time, and I hope that this will be the last!! By that I mean that I am hoping not to move house again.
However, if I did, I certainly would not hesitate to have my stables supplied by you again. The standard of workmanship and value for money just gets better. I have had to have the mobile units this time, due to planning restrictions, but are delighted with the results.Your workmen were really lovely too, they were polite and helpful an efficient and cleared away any rubbish that was left over. They even did a little job for me that I mentioned. I would do myself reagarding closing a gap between two of the units. I am absolutely delighted - a dream come true. Thank You
Just a short note to express my sincere thanks for the quality work you and your team have recently undertaken for me.
The timber framed garage exceeded all my expectations and has won appraisal from all who have seen it.
I was also extremely grateful to you, for your after-sales sevice, personally taking time out to help sort out a small teething problem wich was not related to your side of the project.
Once again, thank you very much.
"Just a line to say how pleased I am with my new stables. The dog run mated up with the tack room with no problems and the dog approves.
Your staff were polite, helpful, tidy and did everything I would expect from a professional team.
A photograph of the stables is enclosed for your retention."
"Thank you to all of you. With all the problems with the incompetent council, I never thought I would see this day arrive.
Approx another two weeks before I can move the horses up (contractor not returning until next week) but at least I am now on the final leg of the 'big build'. Attached are some of the photo's but I will copy all of them onto a disk from empty field to final completion when we get there and post it to you. Please feel free to share whichever photos' you want with future potential customers.
Your lads have worked like Trojans, despite the high winds that have been with us since the start of the build. Only four days from arriving on site to completing the build of an eight bay American barn is testament to their commitment and determination to get the job done regardless of what mother nature throws at them; in this case gales! They are a great bunch and really know their stuff.
I absolutely love the barn. Not only does it look brilliant, it's very well made and is bright and airy whilst keeping out the elements and on the top of that hill in the Peak District the weather changes very rapidly from one extreme to another. I have no problem whatsoever in recommending you both to other people.
Thank you so much once again"
"I would like to thank everybody at Withington Hill, firstly for the help and advice I received when discussing the design of my new stable building, secondly for the rapid build, with delivery actually on the day I asked for, and finally the very pleasant and hard working lads to came to assemble it.
The whole experience was very easy for me, and I am absolutely delighted with the end result."
