We wanted a bigger house in a more rural setting

Date: Tuesday 22 February 2011

“We wanted a bigger house in a more rural setting and had been looking for a while. Eventually we found what we thought was the home for us and were in the process of buying it when the chain fell through! We were understandably upset as we had to start the whole house search again from scratch but now we’re so glad we did!

"We saw an advert for Shobdon Oaks on the internet and thought it was worth visiting. When we arrived we were taken aback as it isn’t like most new-build developments we’d seen before, there’s only a handful of homes being built and the setting is very secluded; it’s absolutely perfect for us.

"The new house is amazing, there’s so much space and we’re taking full advantage of its fantastic location; we’re surrounded by countryside and having the village on the doorstep is particularly handy. The dogs get very excited when its time for walkies as there’s so many places to take them. We can go out of the front door and start enjoying the scenery straight away!”
