"Moving house can be a frightening prospect when you’re in your mid-70s. Fortunately, I used Easymover when I moved from my old house in Gretton to my brand new Taylor Wimpey home at Paddock Fields.
“Taylor Wimpey held my hand throughout the process, which took a lot of pressure and worry away. I didn’t have to get involved in negotiating prices for my old home, which is something I wouldn’t have relished.
“Everybody I dealt with a Taylor Wimpey was pleasant, friendly and incredibly helpful – it was quite different to how I imagined the buying and selling process could be.
"Having lived in Gretton for 42 years, I can say it’s a very welcoming and accepting community, and people who have moved to Paddock Fields from outside of the area have found it very easy to settle here.
“The sense of community is something people in Gretton pride themselves on, and everyone makes sure they support the village shop, use the village hall and so on.
“It’s a great location here – we’re close to some lovely towns like Market Harborough, Stamford and Uppingham; Rockingham Castle is two and a half miles away and historic Kirby Hall is also nearby. “If you like sailing and other watersports then Rutland Water is a short drive away, then there’s some lovely places like Fineshade Woods which make a great day out.”
