First residents move into their new home at Bretby Farm

Date: Tuesday 14 January 2020


Following the launch of our Bretby Farm development in September last year, our North Midlands team has recently welcomed the first residents to join the new community in Swadlincote. Ian Dowd, 40, and his wife Lyndsey, 36, moved into their new four-bedroom Lydford home with their two children Molly and Noah, in late November and have been getting used to life in their new home.

The family was renting a home in the nearby Albert Village but wanted to find something more permanent that could accommodate their needs and a place where they could start collecting memories. So they started looking for a forever home but couldn’t find a house that was perfect for them. Lyndsey said: “We had been looking at other developments in the surrounding areas of where we lived but the homes we saw didn’t feel right for us. One day when I was driving to work, I drove past Taylor Wimpey’s Bretby Farm development and we thought we might as well have a look at the properties there.”

From the start, Lyndsey and Ian found the whole process of buying their new home easy and straight-forward. The couple used the Government-backed Help to Buy Scheme to secure their dream home which meant that they only needed to pay 5% deposit for their dream home.

Commenting on their experience and the support they received from the team, Ian said: “Everyone in the Sales Team has been absolutely amazing. We found that there was always someone on hand to deal with our enquiries and nothing seemed like too much effort for them, which made us feel very comfortable with the situation.”

Lyndsey added: “We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone in the Taylor Wimpey Sales Team for helping us find our perfect forever home and for making the whole process an easy and enjoyable experience for us.”

The family has now settled into their new home and the spacious living of the house has allowed them to live the family life they have always dreamt of. Ian said: “We are so happy with our new house, the kids have settled in really well, especially our daughter who absolutely loves living here.”

Lyndsey added: “This is the perfect house for us. It allows us to live a proper family lifestyle where we can all enjoy meals together in the dining area and we have enough space to grow together as a family.”
