As soon as we entered the site we fell in love, the houses look so nice and are spacious. I think the builder actually cares about what they create – its the simple things like using a variety of brick colours and different house styles all on the same road which we loved – instead of a copy and past attitude that we saw elsewhere in Ashby.

The gardens are lovely and you can see they spent a lot of money on plants and flowers as each home feels like it has some individuality and character about them.
We did look at buying new at the time of looking and they were great in the marketing suite they discussed all of our needs and gave us a timeline of all the new buildings being developed. However we were very fortunate when we saw the exact house style we wanted come up that same week so we snapped that up straight away.
Overall we are over the moon coming here, it feels like a dream house but we didn’t have to wait until we retired for it!
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
We originally looked at Ashby because of it’s vibrant town centre and transport links, there is a nice variety of shops, coffee shops, restaurants, pubs and takeaways and the Davidsons Ashby Gardens is within a 15 minute light stroll away. The area is lovely and the surrounding area has a national forest and lots of footpaths and fields to go for a walk and take the dog.
In terms of transport, you are about 30 minutes away from Nottingham, Derby, Leicester and Birmingham so its perfect. And we discovered in our first year of living here that the National Express can pick you up from the town centre and take you to London – which is a bonus! 🙂
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
Nothing really comes to mind, we are sincerely happy with our house and love it! The development looks great, and the area is lovely. 🙂
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
Yes they did, they were super quick and efficient. We had a outdoor gate which was a bit wonky and couldn’t close properly. After sending Davidsons an email they came within a week and sorted it for us 🙂
