Product Details Company Info More from this company

Widely renowned for its durability and soft neutral tones, natural limestone has become increasingly popular as a flooring option. Its warm tones and unique markings harmonise beautifully with every kind of décor, making it easy to match flooring tiles up to the rest of your room.

Not only is natural stone a sustainable choice, it’s also an excellent conductor of heat. On warmer days, you’ll appreciate the cool touch under foot and when winter kicks in, teaming stone flooring with a rug and adding underfloor heating is a really good idea as the heat will spread throughout your home.

It’s also a healthy choice – with its hard, non-porous surface, natural stone flooring doesn’t harbour bugs so it’s particularly suitable if anyone in your family has a respiratory condition or sensitive immune system. Natural stone flooring is easy to clean and maintain, helping to keep dust and allergens out of your home.

With the popularity of open plan living and seamless movement between rooms, natural stone is a holistic choice for your home, perfect for creating flow between the indoors and outdoors. You can do this very effectively by using stone flooring or tiles in orangeries which open out onto a patio and harmonise with the rest of your garden.

So whether you’re looking for an aged stone floor to blend in with a period property, or prefer a cool, minimalist look inside your home, discover a world of choice together with expert guidance and inspiration from our friendly team about the right sort of flooring to suit the way you live. Our current range includes English limestones, world stones and marble.

Stone has always been part of our family history and local heritage.

Based just outside the beautiful stone town of Stamford, we’re lucky enough to live and work on the famous Lincolnshire limestone belt.

You can find our stone all over the country.  Although our main business is architectural masonry and house building, our stone is equally desirable for use inside the home, too. Its popularity led us to create Stamford Stone At Home, which specialises in bespoke stone staircases, flooring for reception halls, boot rooms, orangeries and fireplaces and for patios, paving and ornamental features.

We’ve contributed to some very prestigious projects. Think of quintessentially British buildings including York Minster, Windsor Castle and the Houses of Parliament as well as exciting restorations in historic Oxford and Cambridge. Our expertise also extends to new developments for the next generation of homeowners.

That’s the beauty of stone. It lends itself to a rich diversity of building projects that shape the landscape where we live, work and come together.

We’re proud to own and operate local quarries – the first is our 20 acre Clipsham Medwells Quarry, over a century old. The second is our 30 acre Greetham site, which we took over in 2014. The third is our most recent acquisition, Clipsham Quarry Company which makes us the exclusive supplier of beautiful Clipsham stone worldwide.

While we’re steeped in tradition, we’re big believers in innovation. Our quarry at Swaddywells is perhaps better described as a stone engineering processing centre. Investing in advanced cutting equipment means we can now produce ashlar cladding pieces. This allows natural limestone to be used as either a fully constructional element or a lightweight cladding material.

Committed to remaining a family business, Stamford Stone is currently led by the second generation.

Nothing has changed from when we launched our business in 1997. We’re still as passionate about our products, the way we do business and our customers as we were at the very beginning.

To what do we owe our success?

Changes in technology – from mechanisation which began in the 1950s to the state of the art CNC saws we use today. This guarantees accuracy and consistency like never before. We’ve witnessed huge advances that have improved our processes. However, the careful finishing by hand of our skilled stonemasons will never be replaced.

Good collaborations – we’ve established excellent ongoing relationships with everyone we supply. Consequently, architects, specifiers, housebuilders and conservation specialists in building, commercial and retail sectors frequently approach us first.

Environmental responsibility – we’re very aware of preserving the landscape around our quarries. As a result, we have a renewal plan in place so that we can assure green spaces in the future.

With sustainability such a key word in architecture and construction, we are committed to doing everything we can to take care of our resources. Find out more at our environmental policy.
