What We Offer


A bespoke service

Giving you the input in creating your perfect bespoke home and listening carefully to your requirements.


After-sale service

Our commitment to customer satisfaction extends beyond when you move in should you wish to make any alterations at a later date.


Energy-efficient focus

Including the latest innovations in high-quality insulation and air-source heat pumps.


End-to-end service

From locating a plot, designing your home and applying for planning permission all the way through to the construction and moving-in phases. We take the stress out of custom built homes.


High-quality craftsmanship

We use timber frames for our properties to maximise the natural relationship between light and wood, using space to its full potential, and bringing the outdoors in, using large facades of glass.


Decades of experience

Our business is a collaboration between Eddie, a skilled and experienced Master Carpenter, and David, with a track-record of running businesses that are dedicated to customer satisfaction.

Our Clients


Set in the heart of Conservation Area, Manning’s Cottage was constructed for us to exacting standards in 2014 during which time it has proved to be a well insulated, warm and eco to run home. The layout internally is ideal with open plan living rooms light and spacious plus the four double bedrooms each having fully tiled en-suites have resulted in great family/guest flexibility. The long driveway and gardens surrounding our home continue to ensure privacy with the whole of our property enjoying sunshine throughout the day.

Val & Len Evans

Stour Homes’ willingness to allow bespoke adaptation of their already distinctive building model provided us with the opportunity, advice and quality technical building expertise to create a home of individual character on our plot at Southbrook, finished to a very high standard and backed up with a comprehensive ‘after sales’ service.

Pam & Peter Wood

We have been living in our lovely home for over four years.  I would not hesitate to recommend Stour Homes.

Nils Albrechtsen

After many years searching for a new house we discovered Stour Homes – a small firm run by Eddie Hudson and David Coulter whose prize-winning houses are a byword for imaginative, thoughtfully designed buildings. The workmanship and attention to detail are notable and is coupled with a first class after-sales service.  Eddie and David are on hand to give advice and were very helpful in the first few weeks of settling in when their team of professionals was always available. This company is a refreshing change and example to others.


Iris & Peter Walker

Eddie Hudson and his team take great pride in the quality of their work, and we have found them a pleasure to deal with.  They have finished each aspect of the construction of our new home to a very high standard, which has greatly increased our enjoyment of it.

Graham Castle

Overall we couldn’t have asked for a better experience to buying our dream home.  The patience, flexibility and consideration that David & Eddie showed to us gave us much confidence throughout the process – we couldn’t have asked for anything more.

We were able to influence the final stages of the build which helped turn a house into a delightful and personal home, perfectly ready for living in.  The imagination that David & Eddie both demonstrated helped enormously in converting ideas and suggestions into reality.

Not only are we aware of the focus on quality and attention to detail, but so are our many guests.  This aspect is so easily evident and brings much pleasure knowing that our faith in working with Stourhomes and their team was so rewarding.

With our grateful thanks, two very ecstatic owners.
