Top tip for Cheltenham racegoers

Date: Tuesday 16 March 2010

With The Festival heading into Cheltenham this week, Taylor Wimpey has a tip for visiting punters – take a flutter on the town all year round!

In a bid to attract the attention of some of the thousands of racegoers who visit the town annually, staff at Taylor Wimpey’s Battledown Park development donned oversized masks of notorious racing pundit John McCririck and even borrowed a horse from a local riding school for the day.

Richard Goad, regional sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey, commented: “The Festival brings some great business into Cheltenham every year, filling up our restaurants, bars and hotels for the weekend. However we know the town has a great deal to offer all year round, so we’re encouraging anyone who enjoys their annual experience to consider making the move here permanently.

“We may not be able to predict who’ll cross the line first in the Gold Cup this Friday, but we’re sure that Battledown Park offers better than even odds. Over 85 per cent of homes here have already sold thanks to its great location, and you won’t need to have won big to afford to buy here.”

Homes available at Battledown Park include the spacious four-bedroom bedroom Avebury and Warwick townhouses, spread over three-storeys to offer flexible modern living. Prices currently start from £219,995.
