Mr & Mrs Booth – New build house at Lepton, Huddersfield
We can’t thank the guys at Cave enough for all the work they have done for us! Over the last 24 months they have designed us a perfect house, guided us through the planning permission stage, managed the tendering process, drawn up the contract with the builder, managed that contract, kept our nerves calm, liaised with all parties concerned and supervised the construction through to completion. At all times they have been professional, enthusiastic, hardworking, helpful, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. The finished product is 100 times better than we ever imagined! It’s spacious, bright and airy and the design works brilliantly for our family. It’s stunning and we love it! We heartily recommend their services to anyone.
Mr & Mrs Clancy – House remodelling, Knutsford, Cheshire
We first came across Cave Architects after buying a property in Knutsford, Cheshire. Our new home, called Mallard House, was really an ‘ugly duckling’ and need major works to overhaul the internal layout and it also needed substantial extension work. A property on the same road had recently been built and we had admired its superb architectural style and quality of construction. This house had been designed and supervised by Cave architects so we made contact with the firm.
Together we worked on the design brief and Cave was able to provide plans that reflected our own ideas and also suggested excellent ideas of their own. Cave’s plans for our house were exciting and innovative but also took into account our budget restraints. They were always willing to re-draft plans and implement any changes we made.
Cave was very approachable, friendly and all the structural, planning and technical details were handled superbly. Site meetings were always creative and productive, and gave us the confidence to deal with builders and other contractors. We also really appreciated the dedication of the Cave team who were always prepared to regularly travel quite a long way to meet with us.
I would not hesitate in using Cave architects again and highly recommend their services.
Mr & Mrs Hayman – Improvements to house & studio, Barkisland
We greatly appreciate all the hard work and patience you have put in for us. Cave provided a far better experience than we have had with previous architects and will recommend you to anyone who is in need of an architect. I was great working with you.
Mrs Longmore – Refurbishment of a house & outline approval for a detached house, Greetland, Halifax
As we are not currently resident in the area local to the house we are planning to renovate, we took a gamble on Cave Architects, having seen their advert in the local magazine. Cave have been extremely helpful and reliable at all times, with sound and practical ideas, helping us to decide on the way forward. We have felt very well supported throughout the project so far and Cave have always been easy to contact and ready to meet up at short notice.
Mr Faiz – Extension to a house, Skircoat Green, Halifax
I would like to thank you for your excellent services. You were very quick in seeing me for the plans required for my extension. You were very good in explaining the whole process with planning permission. You also put in a lot of effort with Building Regulations. I know you also had to liaise with other authorities such as Yorkshire Water. You kept me fully informed on every step and you only sent your invoice once you had completed all your work. I am very pleased with your professional work and thank you again for getting me the planning permission for which others had failed.
Mr & Mrs Greetham – Extension to a house, Barkisland, Halifax
We are very glad that we trusted Cave with our extension. The design, implementation, control, and completion of the project worked well and they were thorough and professional throughout. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Cave again.
Mark Fennelly – Detached garage, utility & garden room, Boothtown, Halifax
I was impressed by the flexibility shown in the approach to helping me design what I wanted. I had an idea of the finished product and the attention to detail I wanted building into the design. As I was new to building and planning, I felt reassured that my questions weren’t silly. Cave Architects didn’t rush me when they produced the outline drawing and I felt confident to be able to discuss and amend the final plans before submission to the local authority. It was this relaxed approach which allowed me to feel in control of the plans as they developed. The use of email and giving me PDF versions of the plans allowed me to share with friends and family which was really useful for advice. Needless to say I’m really pleased with the end result. I would certainly recommend them.
Norland School Fun Club – Extension to the Nursery, Norland, Halifax
Cave Architects provide an excellent service in support of our council-funded project. Cave demonstrated the right balance of professionalism and flexibility, working with us to develop plans for a superb extension. Our project was constrained by a tight-budget, but Cave’s creative plans ensured a flexible and contemporary space which has achieved all the objectives we set at the start. The process was made easier through their guidance and support, and I would happily work with them again in the future.
Mr & Mrs Oddy – Extension & Refurbishment of houses, Northowram, Halifax
We would like to thank Cave Architects for helping to create our new home, we are really happy with the end results. Cave Architects gave us lots of advice and had some great ideas when drawing the plans, we changed the drawings on numerous occasions to see which plan worked best for us, and this was never a problem. We will definitely use Cave Architects again when the next project comes along. Thanks again, Gill and Simon Oddy.
Mr & Mrs Ellis – Extension to a House, Drighlington, Leeds

We would have no hesitation in recommending Cave Architects. They worked very hard and nothing was too much trouble. They provided us with a great design for the extension which obtained planning consent.
Mr & Mrs Lewis – Barn conversion, Oxenhope
My wife and I found the property we had always wanted in the desired location. This property was a barn in quite a poor condition requiring both design and structural work. Cave Architects provided a first class professional service throughout. Cave provided sound advice, good design options and careful and thoughtful direction to the project. They were always available when those challenging events occur, providing both sound advice, technical knowledge and clearly defined solutions. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cave Architects to other clients. I would be confident clients could implicitly trust Cave Architects with their building design projects.
Mr Morrisroe – Basement conversion, Elland
I found the service from Cave Architects professional and friendly. They were willing to work with me to achieve my aims and objectives. The end result was a timely delivery of design details and drawings to my specification. We much appreciate the effort and dedication.
Mr Roxburgh, Rock Management UK Ltd – Various retail developments, UK
I have been working as an independent consultant for over twenty years and in my role as a Senior Projects Manager, I have worked with such companies as Boots, Do It All, Matalan, Poundstretcher, Instore, QS and Store 21. What is crucial for me is to have available an architectural practice that can produce design and detail drawings both in residential and retail fields, working from sketches and surveying notes, who can act promptly and accurately to given target dates.
When moving my business to Yorkshire I was fortunate to have such a company on my doorstep. Cave Architects have provided me with a first class service in everything I have asked them to do. They perform to a high standard and are very accommodating in terms of alterations or additional work. They have been extremely helpful, always polite, and courteous and I have no hesitation therefore in recommending Cave Architects to any other client seeking the many services they can provide.
Mrs Mooney, School Business Manager, West Vale Primary School – New headmaster’s office
This is to confirm my recommendation to others to use Cave Architects. I approached Cave as a project was just about to start, as we needed to change the design of an internal space at short notice.
Cave attended very quickly and had appropriate plans to me within a week. The plans were accurate, reflected what was required and included details to improve the project.
I would happily recommend Cave to others and will use their services again. They are very easy and pleasant to work with and provided a high quality service.
Mr Koslover – Large extension to house, Bowden, Cheshire
I engaged Cave to do a conceptual design on a complete loft conversion. Two previous architects had failed to overcome the technical access difficulties. Cave came up with a very well designed creative solution that all stakeholders bought into to. They provided fit for purpose design/technical/structural sketches and drawings. I found them to be flexible, receptive to ideas but overall very creative and constructively challenging with their own ideas. Easy to work with at the personal level. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cave.
Mrs Gibson – Extension to cottage, Holywell Green, Halifax
Cave Architects have a truly imaginative approach to our ideas and their innovative contributions made our ideas into a realistic project. . They are great listeners, who take your ideas and visions, and translate them into a real and workable design.
I appreciate how willing they were to accept my on-going input and make last-minute revisions. When we first approached Cave, I had a pretty clear idea of what I wanted and they did an incredible job of turning what I’d imagined into something real. We had a limited budget, yet Cave, conscious of our financial constraints still offered great design with our needs being met.
Mr Smith-Moorhouse, Managing Director, Colson Industries Ltd – Extension to factory, Elland
When we needed to look at expanding our factory premises Cave provided us with a professional, reliable, quick and friendly service.
Miss Barlow – Extension and alterations, Copley, Halifax
I wanted a balcony at the rear of my house to make the most of the south-facing views. Cave Architects came up with a great design, and then handled the planning application and the tender for the building work. They found an excellent builder who did a great job, and I’m really impressed with the result.
Mr & Mrs Verner – Roofing works, Stainland, Halifax
We employed the services of Cave Architects as we needed our property re-roofing, and we didn’t know who to ask. Cave sorted out roofing firms, showed them around the property for us, and discussed with us the technicalities involved. They obtained competitive quotes on our behalf, and again discussed this with us. Cave also overswaw the work during and after the project.
It took all the worry away from us, knowing we would not get ripped off by builders, and that all the work would be checked for us.
If we need repairs or alterations in the future we will certainly ask Cave for advice again.
Mr & Mrs Ellis – Bungalow renovation, Ainley Top, Huddersfield
If you’re looking for an architect, then look no further than Cave Architects. We can’t recommend them enough. From the first moment we met with Cave we knew they were the men for the job. We have never had to chase them to find out what stage we were at, in planning or with the drawings. They kept us informed at all stages, so we have known when & what to expect. Such a professional reliable service has been provided; we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are really looking forward to seeing our new house transform during it’s complete renovation. Continue with the great work, we know you will be a great success.
The Trustees of the Maurice Jagger Centre for the Elderly & Disabled- Extension, Halifax
May we take this opportunity to thank you and your team for all the help, advice and professionalism shown during our extension project. During the design stage of the project our concerns and questions were answered with the utmost respect and promptness, and we appreciated your attention to the smallest of details.We have received nothing but compliments on the finished building. You were able to turn our dream into reality by using the small amount of space we had available to give us exactly what we requested.
Steve Baker – Conversion of grade II listed barn, Holmfirth Cave architects have provided an exceptional service in gaining planning permission to enable the conversion of my dilapidated barn to a superb dwelling, this has created a valuable asset for me and my family.

Nick Brown – Works to grade II listed farmhouse, Stainland, Halifax The team were very helpful when I was planning a restoration project. The house is grade II listed, and their experience was invaluable when negotiating the planning process. In particular, I was very impressed at how friendly and approachable they were, and very quick to reply to my queries. I’d never attempted a project like this before, and this made the whole process so much easier I would not hesitate to recommend Cave Architects Ltd as an Architect of choice.
Joseph & Helene Archangelo – Conversion of rural workshop to house, Stainland, Halifax Upon purchasing a derelict barn in December 2015, we needed the services of a good builder and a reputable architect.
We had previously renovated an old farmhouse and barn back in 2008 and to that end had used a good building firm who we were entirely satisfied with. It therefore made sense to seek to engage the same builders but we had never needed an architect before as our last project wasn’t as big.
Our builder recommended a company who he had previously worked with and he was very confident they would do a good job for us. We were introduced to Cave Architects and right from the start we knew we would be looked after very well. The partners have an easy manner, nothing was too much trouble, even when we wanted to change drawings at the eleventh hour. They are is innovative, forward thinking, extremely creative and very easy to work with.
The end result of all Cave’s hard work and ideas is a spectacular looking house. Their vision for the design of the building is just perfect. We couldn’t be more delighted with the result and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Cave to
anyone who is looking for an architect who not only comes up with wonderful ideas but is happy to guide you along gently throughout the whole process.
