Cotswold stone is an iconic choice for prestige homes in the Cotswolds. This stone is a beautifully, distinguishing characteristic of the Cotswold region in England.
For new builds this stone blends seamlessly into natural landscapes, while still upholding a contemporary appearance that can be matched with either traditional or modern finishes.
Cotswold stone can be supplied either cut top and bottom or locally dressed and laid coursed or random by our stonemasons using lime sand and cement mortar.
Upton Builders are proud to have dedicated years to learning and executing the craft of handling and shaping natural stone to achieve a perfect finish.

Ashlar is a lightly coloured, finely cut stone that is characterised by its smooth, even faces and square edges. It is mainly used for feature work on stone-built houses, such as:
- Stone quoins
- Mullion windows
- Stone label moulds
- Stone lintols
- Stone cills
- Coping stones
Ashlar stone can be laid horizontal, with blocks laid in parallel or at random to create discontinuous vertical and horizontal joints. They can also be left rough and unpolished, or polished and rendered decoratively to meet the requirements of the client’s design.
Upton Builders can provide a range of Ashlar stone from local quarries in the Cotswolds, perfect for your new build project.
