Below are a few testimonials from our lovely clients:


I received a book produced by Benchmark House Histories from my wife this Christmas all about our Grade 2 listed house in Berkhamsted.  It was one of the best presents I have ever received as it is so personal and bespoke and something I will treasure for years to come.  I love the fact that it is such an original gift and I have been showing it to so many people as I think it is just brilliant! It was so interesting to find out the history of the property and all the people who have lived here and I very much enjoyed looking at the old photos and documents relating to the house and surrounding area. I would recommend this service to anyone who has a house with a bit of history.  It’s such a lovely talking point!

Robert had a wonderful weekend but but he still keeps coming back to 'The Book'! I presented it to him on Saturday breakfast when our two children were here, it reduced us to tears … he was overwhelmed.

The beautiful book Carol and Sue made of Chilham Castle as their first project. They were a delight to have around, but not intrusive at all. Sue’s research was excellent, and Carol took lovely pictures. The book is a huge success - it makes a wonderful present to give, as well as being a fantastic record of this great old house.

To be able to discover the history of your house and get it detailed in a beautiful book is such an inspired idea! Luckily the reality lived up to the idea and the resulting book is lovely to look at and fascinating to all who read it. Thank you!

Your book has arrived safe and sound - well done both of you, it is lovely! It is beautifully produced and printed - your photos are excellent, and Sue has produced a huge amount of detail and done precisely what I asked in that she has unravelled the early history of the house.

The book arrived late morning and it is really lovely - Keith was really pleased with it, and so was I. It is lovely to have such a beautiful record to look at - it has also been much admired by friends!
