Review Date Nov 2021

We are so happy to be living in this area, its friendly, quiet and surrounded by the most beautiful countryside.
It has good links to local amenities and is close to Chippenham station and the M4 which is perfect for commuting or general travel.

Please review your development:

We are very happy with Stonewood Partnerships as a developer. The properties are finished to a very high standard with good levels of workmanship.
As with all new properties there were snags, but Stonewood has dealt with them promptly and without any fuss.
The properties were designed with modern living but are sympathetic to the local area and they fit in really well.
All the contractors that have been in our property or around site have been courteous and friendly.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

How good Stonewood are to purchase a new home from, it would of saved a lot of time if we had gone to them first!

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

They have responded to any snags promptly and efficiently and have exceeded our expectations.

Fantastic development, great village, stunning location

Review Date Oct 2021

Great local shop, post office and pub in the village. All with very friendly and welcoming staff. Such a picturesque, quiet and rural setting here that it really feels relaxing living here. Only downside is the noise of the pylons which, when raining, does become particularly loud. But on a fair weather day are barely noticeable.

Please review your development:

Fantastic development. I searched for a long time to find a shared ownership property that gave me everything I wanted, and looked nice. Well this development does that and more! The green open spaces, planted trees and design of the properties make this development stand out. The builders who are still on site at the moment have all be fantastic and friendly as well. All willing to help me if I needed anything at all.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The noise of the pylons during different weather. Sometimes can barely notice the noise, but at other times it is quite loud. But only when outside.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Stonewood have been fantastic, anything I have raised they have looked into straightaway. Any issues I’ve had the builders on site have been willing to come and help me.

Fantastic area thriving in character, perfect for my family especially with two younger children.

Please review your development:

Very professional with attention to detail, perfect blend of character and modern aspects to suit the surroundings. Backing onto the farm has it’s advantages to keep my children entertained, minor issues dealt with in an appropriate manor, kitchen design could of improved but overall the positives much weigh out the negatives by a country mile no pun intended.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Nothing I can think of.

Excellent decision investing in a Stonewood home in Great Somerford!

Review Date Sep 2021

Initial problems with original villagers in particular Frog Lane, who resented the development, but as development continues, currently easing, but the original communal green area and walling altered to accommodate resident’s old tractor which is an eye sore. V good village shop, friendly pub, buses almost non existent. We had to ask for bin collection to come down into road, but that all is good now. We have been really lucky with our neighbours here, everyone is great. The main issue is parking for visitors or deliveries. There is no turning head at our end of the development, so if we have visitors, they or we park on pavements, which blocks way for pedestrians. The setting is quiet, rural and peaceful. There is a great community spirit, and allotment gardens are brilliant way of settling in too.

Please review your development:

The design, build, attention to detail and quality is why we invested in a Stonewood property. The environ harmonious with original farm setting, and layout good, the style of the house development has been much admired. We love the exterior look and the feel internally it is spacious and well thought out. We think the kitchen is fab and so is the wood burner! A couple of poor design considerations, such as no catches on Rationale windows or doors, which are a safety issue, and is hopefully being addressed. The lack of visitor parking is an ongoing issue. The heating system initially was a total nightmare, being a hybrid control system making it unnecessarily complicated. We love the interior finishes, choice of materials v good. It would have been good to have regular road cleaning during the site construction phase, as delivery and site vehicles create road dust and mud which is a constant issue. Or clean everyone’s windows over regular periods! The only issue we felt was poor, was quality of garden/turf/soil/level. It was great being given a bin / bike store. We had some snagging issues, but the Customer Care / Admin Team have been brilliant. Indeed all the Management Team and Site Team and visiting contractors have been flipping fantastic. Listening and responding to our queries and concerns, a first class service which has been much appreciated. We are often asked “Would you recommend a Stonewood house to anyone else” and our answer is a resounding “Yes!”…

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

We found the soil quality, levels, and turf quality not very good. Our particular garden is almost impossible to dig, water collects and does not drain. So quality of top soil and ground underneath is poor. In hindsight, we focused on house and never paid attention to the quality of the garden.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

First class service, all problems / issues for us as private residents have been dealt with professionally and promptly, which has been exceptional.
