  • "Dave is very friendly & professional. He was happy for us to make changes such as photos as we wanted and put our personal touch on it during the planning stage. Communication was great. Proofs were sent via email as changes were made. He even delivered them in person to me this morning. I would definitely recommend him – a great service all round." (Waters Reach, Buxworth)

(Bears Paw guest on TripAdvisor)
