Lyndsey - Trefnant - Clwyd ~ 30.09.2015


My mum actually ordered a wedding cake topper from you back in September for our wedding. I asked her for something that was different to all the regular cake toppers you see online and wanted it to be very unique to us. It was all kept secret by my mum as to what it was going to look like and I will always remember seeing it for the 1st time on our big day sat upon my amazing cake was this fantastic cake topper! I was speechless and totally blown away! The detail on the dress was exactly like my actual dress my hubby's suit was also captured perfectly. I loved the fact that I had blue shoes on and all the blue gems in my hair were spot on! My hubby's red rosy cheeks made us giggle as he is known for his red face! My hubby is a mad cricketer and the fact that you made the badge on his hat look exactly like the real badge just goes to show how amazingly talented you are and how amazing you are at what you do! Every time I look at our wedding model now I notice something different that I hadn't realised was there before. I can't thank you enough for making it for us and I'm looking forward to getting a glass display cabinet to display it in to show off to our visitors! I look forward to ordering from you myself in the future! xx


Brenda - Tewkesbury - Gloucestershire ~ 08.08.2015


I have had 2 characters from Laura at Cotswold Characters and I am so pleased with them! They truly are out of this world! Laura is such a talented lady. I asked Laura to sculpt a Jack Russel dog called Winston as a wedding present for the owner's and they were so pleased with him that they asked for Cotswolds Characters details! I will tell everyone I know about Cotswold Characters!


Karen - Glasgow - Scotland ~ 11.07.2015


I ordered my Milo dog model and I absolutely love it! The workmanship put into it is amazing and it looks so like him, even capturing his cheeky nature. Amazing service received, I could not fault it. Will definitely be a return customer!


Elaine - Metheringham - Lincoln ~ 10.07.2015


I ordered a model of my German Shepherd Clementine. Having looked at various other doggy sculptures I knew what the finished product would be like. What I wasn't expecting was the way my girl's personality was captured as well. I was amazed. From the initial enquiry to receiving the model Laura was so helpful and accommodating, even down to my request of making one of my pets whiskers white. I absolutely love the model and can't thank Laura enough for making it!


Claire - Dunstable - Luton ~ 28.06.2015


We received our 1st model of our darling dog Henry as a gift and he is just too gorgeous for words! I just had to order one myself for a dear friend of their beloved dog Alife. You just captured him so perfectly. Laura is such a talented younf lady! Thank you for making the memories live on forever. xx


Rachel - Swindon ~ 20.05.2015


I commissioned Laura to sculpt our Border Collie Ben and I never dreamt just how brilliant her mini version would be. Laura consulted with me every step of the way of her creating Ben to ensure I was happy with her progress. We collected Ben and to say we are delighted is an understatement. Laura is extremely talented and she captured Ben perfectly. We cant thank Laura enough for our new mini Ben as he is perfect in every way to the real life version. we wish Laura continued success with her business and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending her. Thank you again.


Hannah - Spondon - Derby ~ 10.05.2015


Hi Laura, my partner loved his model and so did everyone else!! Thank you so so much! I couldn't make a cake that justified your model so I had to buy one! x


Samantha - Willenhall - Westmidlands ~ 25.04.2015


I ordered a model of my Nan & Gramps dog Max who sadly passed away recently from Laura. They adored him and were very touched. My gramps said he couldn't get over the likeness and he is now pride of place on the fireplace. You have given my nan and gramps a little piece of max back and we cant thank you enough!


Debi - Taunton - Somerset ~ 23.04.2015


I am over the moon with the model Laura has made for me of my beautiful border collie Jenny. Laura was extremely helpful and made alterations to the model to my liking without question or extra charge. A very talented lady and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to everyone! A big thank you Laura, we now have a permanent reminder of our loyal friend who we so suddenly and sadly lost.

Kallie - Kingsthorpe - Northampton ~ 29.03.2015

Hayley - Stroud - Gloucestershire ~ 22.02.2015


The model you made of my Mum's dog that sadly passed away was amazing and made her cry as it looked so much like Mili. When Laura contacted me with the completed model I explained that the tail needed to be darker and she made sure this was changed without hesitation. I'm extremely happy with clay Mili and will be ordering more from you soon.


Helen - New Eastwood - Nottingham ~ 14.01.2015


I ordered a model of my Father from Laura, she was helpful and asked us lots of questions so she could capture my Father exactly as we wanted. She was lovely and understanding. I was so happy with the model that I would recommend her to friends & family.


Jan - Churchdown - Gloucestershire ~ 30.12.2014


I'm So pleased with my little figure from Cotswold Characters for my daughters Graduation. My daughter loved it and loved that it was such a unique gift. The service was brilliant, even hand delivered it. I would highly recommend Cotswold Characters! Many, many thanks Laura x


Claire - Spilsby - Lincolnshire ~ 10.12.2014


I ordered a model of our 5 dogs for my husband for Christmas. From the moment I got in touch and then placed the order I knew I was in very safe, capable and professional hands. I wanted it to be perfect and sent in many many photos and descriptions of the dogs, which took ages to load but I was only ever met with patience and understanding. As photos of each completed dog came through, I could have cried with joy. They were all perfect and each model showed the dogs features and character. Seeing the completed model which arrived safely and was packed with such care was fantastic. I had also ordered one of the dogs on it's own and even though I had two of the same dog for different reasons, they were different models and different but It still looked like the one dog. A real talent.
I can't thank you enough for what you did and how good and detailed it is. Not only are you a very talented lady, you are a true professional and I have been happily recommending you to many of my friends. Good luck on a thriving business xx

Jo - Walsall - Westmidlands ~ 08.11.2014
Placed my order for a friend who was due to marry in November 2014. I asked this very talented young lady that I knew, if she could provide me with the best present.....she obliged and I could not have been happier with my purchase. The bride was overwhelmed by the gift, as was I by her reaction to it. I would recommend Laura to craft anything for me and I know she would do an amazing job. She is a marvel!!
Claire - Stroud - Gloucestershire ~ 31.10.2014
Well what can I say about "Cotswold Characters" I'm 3 characters in, one each (Completely bespoke!) for my partner, Son, Nan and having just picked up my 4th for my Daughter today, which I and everyone else thinks is wonderful, excellent and obviously skilled workmanship has gone into making these individual, not to mention well planned, researched and thought out specific characters. I'm not the easiest buyer to create a clay piece for (or anything for that matter) very demanding and particular with what I want. But every single time this fantastic lady behind these creations has not only fulfilled my requests but has always gone above and beyond my expectations! There is still another 2 (Including 1 very large order) that I have booked in with Cotswold Characters which only speaks volumes for these models and how in demand she is. Thank you for making me such brilliant gifts for my family, which have pride of place and have become a real talking point for people visiting our home!
Becky -  Barnstaple - Devon ~ 28.10.2014
Hi, Received my wedding Anniversary model today and it's amazing. Thank you so much! Everyone at my workplace was very impressed and a few people have asked for your details!
Chris - Horsley - Gloucestershire ~ 20.10.2014
Hi Laura, presented Jane with your lovely Character at dinner on Saturday evening during dinner at the hotel in fornt of our residential guests. She was TOTALLY blown away and was quite emotional at how thoughtfully it had been created. Thank you SO much for all your hard work in making this a perfect gift.
Becki - Birmingham - Westmids ~ 18.10.2014
The model you made of our friends is absolutley amazing! Laura is very talented. Thanks so much for making this, we really appreciate it. We will be recommending you to everyone! Can't wait to see our friends faces when they open it at Christmas!
Doreen - Dukinfield - Cheshire ~ 10.10.2014
Skipper and Bobby have arrived.....I am absolutely thrilled with them.....THANK YOU....x
Laura - Bristol - Avon ~ 25.09.2014
I can't get over the model Laura has made for me. It looks amazing. I am so pleased with it. I actually shouted out oh my God when I received it! It's now currently on display in my livingroom cabinet for everyone to see.
Shani - Walsall - Westmids ~ 04.08.2014
My Father was over the moon with his model. He is showing everybody. My Dad is a man of few words but keeps saying how good it is. Then rearranging it on the sideboard!
Becki - Birmingham - Westmids ~ 22.07.2014
I ordered a clay model of our German shepherd Max. He was our first dog together and I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with this model. I coudn't have been any happier when I saw his face when he opened it. He was absolutely thrilled with it! I would highly recommend Cotswold Characters to make personal, top quality models. Laura couldn't have been more helpful throughout the process. She told me step by step what she was doing and when she was doing it. I will definitely be ordering from her again!
Jason - Newcastle Upon Tyne - 25.06.2014
Hi Laura, we have just received the clay model of our dog Marvin. My wife was so happy with it! Thanks again!
Abbi - Stroud - Gloucestershire ~ 23.06.2014
Thank you Laura for our fabulous wedding cake topper. It was made with such care, the detail is astonishing and it was made really personal to us with our kitten and groom in his football kit. It complemented our cake perfectly and so many people commented on how great it looked. I can't recommend Cotswold Characters enough!
Kate - Hignham - Gloucesterhire ~ 12.06.2014
Cotswold Characters offer a fabulous service with an even better end result. Laura is very helpful and very talented at what she does. I ordered a model of my husbands dog ...who passed away earlier this year. Laura personally delivered him to me and when I saw him I could not wait until Father's Day to give it to him and had to give it to him the same day. He was almost brought to tears with the likeness and the fine detailing, thanks again Laura.
Nadia - Gloucester, Gloucestershire ~ 27.05.2014
I ordered a double model of myself and my sister for her birthday present from Laura Barton
It was of me as a chef and my sister as a dog groomer. The detail and craftsmanship was amazing and my sister cried when she opened it. This model was a very special gift to my sister and laura helped to make it special. Laura is a very talented young artist who is also very reliable and the cost of my model was very reasonable for the high quality of work. So if you're looking for someone to make a model please contact Laura as I can't recommend her enough.xx
John. E. - Gloucester, Gloucestershire ~ 22.04.2014


I got a clay model made of my pug dog as a Mother's Day gift and I couldn't have been more pleased with the result! Laura's service is very affordable for the quality of work and I have passed her details on to family & friends!


 Penny - Kemble, Gloucestershire ~ 12.04.2014


I bought a custom figure of my friends two dogs for a present. They were absolutely perfect and captured the dogs personalities so well. I can't believe how Laura manages to make some clay into something so real! My friend was delighted. If you want a present that's different and personal, I can't recommend Cotswold Characters highly enough. Thanks Laura, xxxx


Glynis - Stroud, Gloucestershire ~ 01.04.2014


I have commissioned a couple of 'Cotswold Characters'. The first one I brought was for my son's wedding for a cake topper. Laura created it from photo's and it was stunning. I was so pleased with it as it looks just like them. She had even given him a guitar. Its was a nice surprise for them and I could not wait to give it to them until the wedding as it showed a replica of the brides dress. They were over the moon with it and it has pride of place in their front room.


I also bought one for a colleague retiring from work. It was of her 3 dogs. She was very happy with it!


The other character that I ordered was of my dog Benny. I am very selfish with this one and keep it on my desk at work ao I can see it all day long. He makes me smile just to look at him. In fact all of Laura's characters make you smile, it's just the expression on their faces.


I have another one on order for my parents 50th Wedding Aniversary so as you can see I have no hesitation in recommending 'Cotswold Characters'. I'll continue to buy them for all occasions because they are not only quality craftsmanship but totally unique!


Helen - Sheldon, Birmingham ~ 22.02.2014


Received my clay model of our son and our dog! We are over the moon with it and amazed at the detail! You are truly gifted. Thank you so much for this gorgeous model of these two best friends! Xxx


Tracey - Stroud, Gloucestershire ~ 01.01.2014

I can not recommend this lovely lady enough. I've just received my cake toppers and they are fab! I couldn't be more pleased with them.

Thank you so much (again) Happy, happy, happy!


Angie – Mansfield, Nottingham ~ 19.11.2013
