Customer Testimonials

Forest of Dean Stone Firms
5/ 5 Stars

"It has been a pleasure to deal with everyone at Forest of Dean Stone Firms.
Regarding the finished fireplace, we are very pleased; all of our friends have admired it.
The fireplace itself was modelled on one the company made for my father for his farm house over sixty years ago!

5/ 5 Stars

"Thank you for getting the stone for our chimney cut in time to be put in place. Your ability to cut the stone so promptly gave us more than ample time to make sure the job was finished on schedule, and we appreciate that.

The staff (managerial and manual) were all very helpful and accommodating. It was a good experience all round, and in turn, refreshing. Thank you again."

5/ 5 Stars

"We have worked with FOD Stone Firms on many occasions and have found their service to be excellent! Delivery dates have always been adhered to.

We have recently completed a contract on the new Clevedon Pier Visitors Centre which was a huge success. The level of help provided by Paul Ramsey, Paul Blake and their team on this project was crucial, and it wouldn’t have been such a success without them. "
