"Working with Great British Racing and British Champions Series to showcase jockey fitness, SteelPad designed and built the mobile gym which is moved between racecourses and used for presentations on public race days and in town centres. The SteelPad 20 has been kitted out beautifully with black walnut sheets, spot lights, bluetooth speakers and a large screen, it is a side opener giving great security when not in use and opening out to a very usable space. SteelPad constructed this quickly and it will fulfil our use perfectly for many years."

"The creation of our bespoke SteelPad has been a smooth and enjoyable process. We appreciated the creative thinking from Simon and Chris in designing the configuration and internal layout to meet our needs with lots of helpful input and flexibility on fixtures and fittings and the external appearance. The SteelPad team take great pride in their work as we saw first hand during installation of our 3 container unit, expertly done in one day by Chris and the Andys. Access to our location is quite challenging, but delivery and craning by Gilles at SteelPad's logistic partner was first class. We are delighted with the result."

"We commissioned Steelpad to provide bespoke toilet facilities for The Lakes Bar and Kitchen, LBK utilising a steel container. This will allow reuse of the unit as and when the café is relocated, or if we need toilet facilities elsewhere. Steelpad worked closely with our construction team and interior designer to meet both the practical need and aesthetic desires for the toilet facilities. They were able to provide specialist input to allow full integration of the accessible WC design, interior design, detailed co-ordination of all interfaces of high quality finishes and all services. The result is a unit providing good functionality, high quality finishes that co-ordinate with the interior design palette of LBK. A facility that The Lakes are very happy with."

"The whole design and build were handled professionally and quickly with SteelPad incorporating European electrics and ensuring our office had maximum light and workspace. We wanted something which could be moved with relative ease, was different, would work well aesthetically and practically at our racing yard in France. We are thrilled with the outcome."

"SteelPad has designed and created a movable space which is currently being used as a temporary home for a retail  tenant. They we able to put our particular ideas first and incorporated them into the designs. The finished product is a very versatile, attractive and secure premise."

"Simon and the team created a bespoke, fully open-plan 2 bay food production space for us to link our existing kitchen with a coldstore. They have a great understanding of how to get the most from the containers and incorporate features that were different to their usual builds, such as an extra strong floor with integrated drainage channels. Their build team were always able to find a solution to the challenges we faced and the finish of their work is excellent. Simon is also a disciplined project manager, able to think ahead and ensure we met our tight timescales."

"The cabin has everything you need... microwave, fridge, cutlery, glasses, tea towels etc. Decent size bathroom with a piping hot shower and a heated towel rail which was great. The sofa turns into a spacious bed. The heating system is amazing and can heat up the cabin in seconds."

Melissa, February 2022

"The cabin is amazing, the pics don’t do it justice! Very clean, very cosy and very quiet."

"Love it, love it, love it!"

Maureen, July 2021

"Absolutely gorgeous and as someone that stays in these sorts of Airbnb's often, I can say the facilities in this one are SUPERB – especially the bathroom!"

Jessica, July 2021

"‘The Spring’ is definitely small but with the amazing big sliding window doors it does not feel small and even at night with the doors shut it’s very well designed for one individual or a couple to stay comfortably. The amenities are great, you have an electric stove with 2 hobs, kettle, toaster, AC, fridge with a little freezer compartment (it has one ice tray and this was an amazing detail as I forgot to buy ice) microwave/convection oven (if you are a first like me to cook a nice meal on this, trust me it works well and it’s powerful, I cooked my first ever rack of lamb and it was phenomenal) the shower is amazing, one of the best I’ve used and it also has a hot rail that distributes a lot of heat to the house. The sofa/bed is probably also one of the best that I’ve slept in, very comfortable as a sofa and extremely comfortable and big as a bed."

Paulo, March 2021

"Beautiful space, feels like you’re in a luxurious hotel room in the middle of nature. The view is a beautiful green space, even in the rain it was amazing and we felt so cosy. Loved the sound of the rain on the roof at night. Will definitely be back in summer!"

Sarah, October 2020

"A quiet, idyllic, luxurious stay in a little cabin amongst trees and birdsong! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful little place. The house itself is stunningly decorated with top quality amenities and furniture – it is compact but has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Every morning we opened the bi-fold and tri-fold windows so we could lie in bed but still feel like we were almost outside and just listen to the birds. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and we made meals in the evenings without any issues. The smart TV was a great bonus – we enjoyed watching films on Netflix and Amazon Prime."

Nikki, September 2020

"‘The Spring’ in Slad is easily one of the best AirBnBs we’ve ever stayed at! Moreover, what the host has managed to achieve with such a small space is really amazing! The home includes all the amenities you’d want, including a great shower and TV set-up."

Nicholas, September 2020

"The bed/sofa was really comfortable, and having air conditioning and hot water in the cabin makes it a luxurious home away from home! We would highly recommend!"

Nicola, August 2020

"Stunning accommodation that feels surprisingly spacious in a lovely setting."

Elliot, August 2020

"My wife and I had a great time during our four nights at ‘The Spring’. The accommodation was stylish, quirky and well appointed. The views from the cabin and patio were really quite special and the use of lots of glass in the unit allowed us to enjoy them fully. Having WiFi, SmartTV, air con and mains water was a real bonus and made the stay really comfortable whilst still allowing us to enjoy some rural isolation."

Ian, August 2020

"This is perfect for a couple’s retreat. There is nothing quite like waking up to greenery all around you. The tiny house is so chic and well thought-out. The kitchen had everything you needed and we enjoyed cooking on the hot plate outside at breakfast."
