Isle of Wight Society Landscaping Award

One of our recent projects was Haven Hall in Shanklin, occupying an enviable spot on the coast with magnificent views; this involved restoring, altering and extending a disused hotel into a luxurious country house creating the perfect setting for weddings, private functions and corporate events set in beautiful landscaped grounds.

Quotes and Client Testimonials

"John Sutton is an architectural engineer – maybe a bit like Mr Spock mind-melds Frank Lloyd Wright. Deciding to hire John for what grew into a demo-rebuild of our small cottage in Ryde turned out to be pounds well-spent. We’re from the US (10 years in UK). It’s been challenging to re-learn work processes and the like in what is known here as a ‘self-build’ project. We had to trust the knowledge and judgment of a professional we hired entirely on reputation. What could go wrong? Well, it was a good decision: John as Elmstone Design took us through design and planning issues in a conservation area, gaining planning permission having listened closely to our needs whilst making the case for what is quite a change. We’re readying for next stages now. We like working with John and his work, but we’ll still make this review just 4 stars. Got to hold something til the end, don’t we?"- Yell Review 1
