What our customers say about us

We are really thrilled with our new home that Blue Tongue Construction have built for us and very grateful for the thought and effort that went into building our dream home. The whole experience was made all the more bearable by having such a genuine and professional team behind it who we could totally trust and were committed to the job every step of the way. The level of finish in the house is of a very high standard and quality.

During the post completion process, Simon Darke has been very helpful with any issues that have arisen.

I would strongly recommend Blue Tongue and would have no hesitation in referring them to a friend or colleague.


We were delighted with the end result of our house and really felt
Blue Tongue had gone the extra mile for us. Our new home was everything we expected and had dreamed of. The attention to detail both in design, execution and finish was of an exacting standard.


I am very fortunate to own a glorious new home designed and constructed beautifully and sympathetically by Simon Darke and his team at Blue Tongue Construction. Simon is very good at blending old with new and my much loved home has the character of a small country house but with all the mod cons to allow it to be run inexpensively and efficiently. Simon is very hands on and has been extremely attentive with the snagging, which is what you expect with a new build. The standard of after care has been very high and that has made all the difference.


Blue Tongue built us a large extension to our listed cottage and dealt with all the issues that came with that, with skill and apparent ease. We lived in the property throughout the building work and the whole team made every effort to make that as easy and comfortable as is possible with the mucky business of construction! They were polite, punctual and tidy and we felt supported every step of the way.


We really felt Simon went the extra mile with our building project - he worked on the plans with an extraordinary level of detail and care and brought to light things that our architect had missed - making the onward stages of the build much smoother and the end result much more practical and efficient.


We chose Blue Tongue Construction based solely on personal recommendation and word of mouth. When you employ a builder who lives locally and has a broad network of friends and contacts, it is in their interests to do the best job possible and Simon Darke did not disappoint. He has since gone on to do work based on our recommendations, so the cycle of good work and good feeling continues.
