Mitchell Gardens provides the ideal family home
Laura Brown and her husband Daniel were delighted when their hunt for the perfect family home ended with the couple buying the four-bedroom Lydford showhome, at Taylor Wimpey’s Mitchell Gardens development in Kidsgrove.
Along with their one-year old son Rory, Laura, 30, and Daniel, 32, were keen to move from their home in Lightwood, Stoke-on-trent, into a property better suited for family life. After struggling to settle on a house they loved, Laura suggested they view the showhome which was for sale at Mitchell Gardens.
Laura said: “We viewed the Lydford showhome during our first visit to Mitchell Gardens and immediately we knew this was the home we wanted in a community where we wanted to be. After visiting so many properties that didn’t quite fit, it was a breath of fresh air to find a home that ticked all our boxes, and even some we didn’t know we had!”
Moving home can be stressful at the best of times, but after taking advantage of the Easymover scheme, Laura, Daniel and Rory’s move to Mitchell Gardens was easier than initially thought. Laura said: “The Easymover scheme was brilliant. It really helped us during the moving process and it even saved us money on estate agent fees. The Sales Executives at Mitchell Gardens were amazing throughout the whole buying process. They were so helpful and were always there if we had an questions, even if we just wanted an update on where we were in the moving process.”
Daniel said: “Not only is our new home brilliant, we also love the area and the development. We’ve settled into the community and our neighbours so are lovely. It’s such a great place for families and our house helps us to provide a great environment for Rory to grow up in.”
Traditionally designed, the four-bedroom Lydford is an ideal housetype for family living. Downstairs there is a light and airy living room, a large kitchen/diner with an attached utility room and French doors opening onto a private garden, and a cloakroom. The first floor consists of the en-suite master bedroom, a further double room, family bathroom and two further well-proportioned bedrooms.
Kidsgrove is a thriving community which includes shops, pubs, places to eat, a supermarket, a library, a health centre, a post office, a bank and schools for children of all ages.
There’s a wider array of shopping, leisure and entertainment opportunities also available in Stoke-on-Trent, which is just eight miles away, and boasts a wealth of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as a cinema, theatres, galleries and museums.
For days out, there’s plenty to do near our new homes in Kidsgrove with the picturesque Staffordshire countryside on the doorstep, while Stoke-on-Trent’s WaterWorld indoor aqua park is ideal for rainy days. Meanwhile, the thrills and spills of a day at Alton Towers theme park are just 20 miles from home.
Families will appreciate that well-regarded schools for children of all ages are within easy reach, including St Saviour’s CofE Primary School, which is within walking distance, while Kidsgrove also has a choice of schools for secondary age pupils.
The development is close to the A34, for convenient access to Newcastle-under-Lyme, plus the A50 for Stoke, while junction 16 of the M6 is just seven miles from home, putting the West Midlands and the North West within easy reach. Kidsgrove railway station is only a mile from the new homes, and offers regular services to Stoke-on-Trent, Derby, Crewe, Manchester and London Euston.

Carl Cooke, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “As a local housebuilder we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our new homes so we were only too pleased to support St Saviour’s C of E Academy. “Schools play such an important role in our local communities and we’re glad to hear that the summer fair was a big success!”
