“Right from day one we have been delighted, and have been looked after very well throughout the whole process. What with Debbie, our sales executive guiding us every step of the way providing support and advice and keeping us updated with progress . Site Managers Tom and Adam have also been checking with us that everything is in order and giving advice on what to expect and how to maintain the property. They have been exemplary, nothing has been too much trouble. Now that we’ve moved in, we can see Story Homes really have thought of everything. The quality of the build is great, and I really love the stonework.”

Cheryl and Peter Hinde Wilson Howe, Whitehaven

“I didn’t ever expect to be living in a brand new house but after seeing the show house here at The Ridings, I put down a deposit on the same house type straight away! I was so impressed with the size of the rooms and quality of the house that I knew it would be perfect for our (now growing) family. Buying a new home also means that we don’t have to fit in doing DIY and decorating and weekends which is always a chore!”

Sarah and Andy Lee The Ridings, Carlisle

Absolutely no negative comments! Everything has been better than we hoped. I would especially like to thank Carreana, Thomas and the Site Manager for being such a fantastic, friendly and helpful team. Thank you Story for our wonderful family home. Carreana and the team have been outstanding – excellent customer service, communication and friendly approachable team. Our homes is fantastic and to the highest possible standard. The moving date stated is the moving date committed to.

I am absolutely over the moon with my new home.  It is even better than I could have imagined it would be.  The finishes are of an excellent quality and everyone we have dealt with have been lovely and so out of their way to be helpful and ensure customer satisfaction at all times.

Can’t fault any of the staff and workmanship on our new home! The standard of completion is exactly what I expected of Story Homes’ developers.

Jason Gooding Clifton Hill Gardens, Penrith

Since moving into our new home, we love it more every day. Leading up to the move Ann and Fiona were an excellent point of contact for queries and questions. Our move went swiftly, on arrival receiving a gorgeous bunch of flowers and a good hug from Ann. From the very beginning of our move we have been treated as part of the Summerpark community. Any small issues found on moving in were repaired in an exceptional timely fashion and high standard. The attitudes, professionalism and approachability of site managers and workers is excellent. We have regular visitors to our new home, be it family or friends who all agree that the house is fantastic value for money. Our two children Aiden (6) and Sophie (2) love their new home, new space and family orientated community spirit. We have now three generations of our family at Summerpark and we love living here! Thank you Story for making our new home amazing!

Andrew McCulloch Summerpark, Dumfries

So far we are delighted with our new home and we hope to have many years living here.

Mr & Mrs Jepson Mabel Wood, Great Clifton

From our first contact with Debbie, she has been fantastic throughout the whole process and has gone out of her way to help us and answer any questions. We would also like to say a massive thank you to both the site managers, Duncan and Stewart who have also gone out of their way to help us.

All staff and contractors who we have came into contact with on site have been very friendly and helpful and everyone is a good example of why Story Homes have a fantastic reputation for quality, which is why we decided to purchase a Story Home.

Mr & Mrs Miller Magellan Park, Whitehaven

The overall process was easy and smooth. We have found all the staff extremely helpful and enthusiastic, a credit to Story Homes. All enquiries handled quickly and efficiently. The spec of the house is fabulous and we are so pleased.

Miss Coates Clifton Hill Gardens, Penrith

As a first time buyer this experience was delightful. Friends and family who have visited have been impressed by the standard and are keen to purchase their own Story Home. The flowers are a nice touch when moving in, overall I highly recommend Story Homes to many people. Thank you for all your help and making it an enjoyable move.

Miss Earl Birkbeck Gardens, Kirkby Stephen

From the moment we showed interest and put down a deposit for our house, all areas of Story Homes have been exceptional. On the period leading up to completion date, your Sales Advisor, Jane Graham has been a credit to the company and an unsung hero. She was available to answer any questions and guided us through every part of buying our new home. Since moving in, we have been very impressed with the quality of the home, e.g. garden area, fixtures and fittings and aesthetics. During the snagging period we have contacted Meryl and Rachael to deal with these small issues and have always been available at the end of the phone to contact the contractors to arrange a suitable appointment which has been done quickly and efficiently. We have then been contacted to ensure we were satisfied which we always are. We could not have asked anything more from Story Homes from start to finish.

Mr & Mrs Colombi Kirkland Fold, Wigton

We had looked at various older properties around 3 years before we finally found our dream home at Story Homes. Normally new properties have no land, garden or space with them, ours is just the opposite. We are absolutely delighted with our Ash at Mabel Wood, it is not just a house to us it is our home and felt like that from the first day we walked through the door, it ticks every box. The quality of finish throughout the house is excellent and all our family and friends have noticed. We now have family members that are looking into buying a Story House. Thank you Story Homes for giving me and my family our perfect dream home.

Mr & Mrs Williams Mabel Wood, Great Clifton
