Hi Lawrence and Annie
Just to say huge thanks for all your help with the sills. They are absolutely as perfect as they can be and we are really thrilled with them.
You gave me so much time on it and I must have been very frustrating, but it was worth every minute to get the right wood for the job.
I can’t thank you enough.
Best wishes

Subject Victorian Altar Cross

Just a quick e-mail to say how very impressed I was when the Victorian Church Altar Cross I purchased from you arrived today. The packing of this 130 year old artefact was absolutely brilliant, nothing was left to chance and it took me nearly 5 minutes to completely unwrap the cross. From start to finish, my experience in dealing with you has been first class, many thanks to all at Fryleigh Farm Barn, I will most certainly use your company again should I need another religious piece.

Hello John and Annie,

Subject Chapel Chairs

You couldn't find a nicer company. Stunning objects, very reasonable prices, and a fantastically helpful team. I bought some lovely chapel chairs and the ACF people let me pick them up (safely and socially distanced) and we're really helpful with my questions about refinishing. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again soon.

Subject Table, Chairs & Pew

February 2021
Good morning Annie and John,

As you'll know, on Wednesday the pew, table, and chairs were safely delivered to us in Devon by Stuart . I wanted to tell you how thrilled we are; the grain and sheen of the table in particular is wonderful, complemented by the small and cosy pew! With the chairs, they're just right, sitting now in the heart of our victorian home - and we know that they'll be enjoyed by all generations of our family for many years to come.

Thank you so much for your excellent service, your efficient communication (including quick correction of my error when ordering), and the fast friendly delivery - and all at very reasonable cost.

Sending best wishes for your continuing success!

Phil

Hi Annie - thanks again for organising so fast the lovely pew today - it’s just perfect for what we are looking for -

We can’t thank you both enough for such hugely pleasant buying experience

Best wishes
