Nice place to live but attention to detail missing.

The houses are beautiful however the parking is not reasonable and the fact that all the houses over look each other seems odd. There’s no privacy at all.
“The meadow” is nothing more that a mud field that has been driven over by a digger and some grass seed chucked down,
There’s no park for the children, broken green fence by the train track which bangs in the wind, just a general lack attention to detail. It seems more about getting more houses built for more money rather than looking after current residents

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

The parking is beyond a joke. Not enough parking for people living here let alone guests, no local shops, the open space of the meadow is not a meadow it’s a poorly plated mud pit.
Bus stops good, no anti social behaviour, no traffic noise, (apart from the train) bin collections are terrible ever 3 weeks.

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

How bad the parking was and how badly overlooked everyone is.

What is the best feature of your home:

It’s a beautiful house. Nice sized garden (although bad drainage makes it a big this time of year, and it’s on a hill)

Rear, side and front access.

A semi detached property

I would say it’s a mixture of good and bad, the garden is poor, to the point it’s pretty much water logged 24/7, with a little bit of dry ground to play, if I could redesign my garden I would! But when the sun is out it’s lovely to see my boy playing out there! the design is brilliant but I would’ve liked a window in the bathroom because of how rubbish the extractor fan is! I have to have a shower with the door open just so it doesn’t feel damp! And my front door is awful, wasn’t fitted properly to begin with and have continuous problems but other than that the house is lovely! I love my little home!

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

The view where I live is absolutely amazing, cannot fault it! The road is wide as well, compared to other housing estates they are narrow, all houses have a drive or a parking space so bonus! Bins get collected every week alternating between black and green! You do get some bad neighbours but you can’t blame the developers for it!

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

I wish I had checked all my meters, as some of mine were connected to other properties, and took awhile to get it resolved!

What is the best feature of your home:

I believe the best thing in my home is where it’s located, it’s so quiet and peaceful it’s amazing!

Lovey family friendly community

I think it’s an amazing lovely quiet friendly community
I havnt really had any issues apart from one and it was sorted in good time the guy that came was very nice helpful and friendly
There is lots of open spaces nice plants and trees and the houses are not all squashed in so your not all over looking everyone
I’m not sure if there will be one built but be nice if there was a play park
I am in a flat.
And I think more needs to be done with sound insulation
I expected to hear the other flats but I don’t expect to be able to hear them talking and babys crying as if there in the same room
Or in my flat that is my only thing and the windows seem a little thin I wouldn’t say they were double glazing even tho they look like it. And I have bay windows and when I rains the noise I unbearable it sounds like rocks falling on a tin roof it either needs more guttering or the material used for the roof needs changing But it other then that I’m loving living here

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

Been here a just over a year
I would say it’s very quiet and friendly and grass areas and things are always kept tidy.
Local farms shops in walking distance as well as the oter in restaurant
Close access to main roads to a30 supermarkets are all within walking distance.
Everyone is very friendly and haven’t had any issues with anyone

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

How there is no sound proofing in the flats
You can hear absolutely everything
Talking laughing shouting baby’s crying toilet flushing loud
It’s as if there in the same room

What is the best feature of your home:

I would say the rpom sizes are great plenty of storage and lots of light from the big windows

Bee Meadow welcome you

Bee Meadow is a very pleasant and open layout with an attractive style and variety of property. As for individual properties more internal storage space would of been welcome.
Please be aware that this is a very windy area as it is on top of a hill.
At the moment construction is still underway so the estate has a good share of works traffic, heavy plant noise during working hours and dirty road surfaces.
The whole purchase process went very smoothly thanks to excellent service from the Sales Office, being kept up to date at all times.
Baker Estates have dealt with any issues during the snagging period as promptly as possible.

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

If you like a slower and quieter life than in a big city you will find it here. There are shops for most things but no big department stores and only one moderately sized supermarket. South Molton provides a selection of restaurants and cafes and a good variety of Public Houses both in town and near by. Areas of open space and woodlands make a nice place to walk your dogs and there are several areas for children to play football or enjoy play equipment. Transport by bus service is available to larger towns if you like more shopping and there is a local taxi service. Access to the main north devon link road is close by and Barnstaple is approx 10 miles.
Bin collections are regular and grass cutting of open areas in the summer season are also regular.

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

We would have liked to be informed of the open space area (which is next to our property) actually being raised from ground level to a substantial mound of earth. Not what we expected when we purchased.

What is the best feature of your home:

We love our new home, well designed internal layout.
