Stevenson's vitality and loyalty to Lloyd George, as well as her discretion in her work and personal life, gained her lover's admiration (although not fidelity).

Stevenson chose the location and supervised the construction of Lloyd George's country house in Churt, Surrey. She also arranged and collated Lloyd George's extensive archive of personal and political papers so that he could write his War Memoirs. After having been persuaded by Lloyd George to have two abortions, Stevenson gave birth to a daughter in 1929.
