Overall it is very nice here.

The design is quite nice but not sure what to say for facilities, there are good parking spaces but other than that there are none. As i mentioned before a proper bin area would be good as it looks untidy left at the side of the road no matter when it is put out!
I think that the builders still working on developments further as long can be pretty inconisderate with parking, they park their cars and vans on the pavement all along so that i have to push the pushchair in the road. The roads are also very dirty covered in lots of mud (which is understandable with building work) however it means traipsing loads of it in every day. I have had to request several repairs as a lot of the fixtures where imo not properly attatched to the stud wall so they were not functional from when we moved in. Stair hand rail and toilet roll holders especially just fall off a lot.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

It is ideal if you drive but for someone like myself who can’t and has small children it is quite a walk to get to the local shops (of which there are not many) which can be a pain at times. I have to order shopping online which can be more expensive.
It did feel very nice living here at first but as a few more people moved in there have been issues with the rubbish, it would be good if there was a different storage area for rubbish (covered perhaps) to stop animals getting to them. There is one neighbour who can make a lot of noise at unsociable hours and makes me feel a little unsafe here coupled with complaints made about me for putting rubbish out early when it isn’t me, has not helped my anxiety at all.
There is plenty of parking space which is great. The noise from traffic is pretty minimal compared to what i was used to before. Just the odd silly person who rides a noisey moped up and down repeatedly for some reason.

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

It’s all about the rubbish! You have to keep it in your house until the day it should be collected otherwise people will complain about you. The refuse collectors will ONLY collect it from the side of the road, so it’s no use keeping it in outdoor bins.

What is the best feature of your home:

I love the layout and size of the rooms in this house, every room feels like it gets plenty of light during the day. I love how quiet it is here (for the most part)

Ashwood have been great, any snag or problems they have sorted or advised.

No issues at all.
Ashwood have been great, any snag or problems they have sorted or advised.
Kind and friendly staff. The development has been well thought out. Plenty of space m, many new estates house appear on top of each other.

A little slow on the final landscaping of the development, that’s my only criticism.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Crowland is a lovely small town, It’s developing and growing very quickly. The one down side is the local shops won’t be able to cope with such growth, I’m sure it’s only a matter of time until we see a supermarket appear.
Our street is spacious, quite and once finished will have some nice green area’s.

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

How long the development was going to take.
The final landscaping still hasn’t been finished, but they have stared 2/3 more sites in the area.

What is the best feature of your home:

Space in and around our house.
Rooms are big compared to some new builds.

Good development but …

In general the development is well created with a walking distance to the village center, there is also a small green area great for kids or pets to walk around and always well maintained.
A few downside points such as : quality of the finish touches within the houses that would require a significant improvement (e.g. quality of the paint, doors, several cracks starting to show)
Also if you request any minimum changes ( even before the house is built) it charged a huge amount of money.
The front garden is done under a great amount of construction waste instead of using a good quality top soil.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Great area to live with a very strong sense of community, excellent connections very near to A52 and A16.
In the village there are schools for different levels.
A variety of local shops around the corner, the only thing that is missing is a medical centre ( nearest one is in Gosberton) and dentist.

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

We were one of the fist people to move into this area of the development when they still continue to work around, maybe it was better yo wait until most of the houses were finished since the noise, traffic and muddy boots were a little too much.

What is the best feature of your home:

Location and allowing people to choose that ( depending of availability)

The design of the property is great

The design of the property is great, the set out of the house is amazing and caters for us. All the space has been utilised well. The customer care team are amazing and responsive. Building management could be better due to the layout of outside of the property being advertised bigger than what it is. Also being told that there were no properties being built behind the house as the ground belonged to the church, then 2 months later that exact ground started being built on

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The good thing about living in this area is the amenities here, the shops the school, the church and the parks! The downside of the parking for visitors on the estate

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

Building behind the house would of changed if we had brought or not

What is the best feature of your home:

The house in general, the garden, having the added feature of the utility
