The Bonnington development is tucked away nicely and is a peaceful environment.

The Bonnington development is tucked away nicely and is a peaceful environment.

Most residents are either young couples or young families.

The apartments are built with a classic redbrick that won’t feel outdated in future, unlike many new builds that go for a contemporary look and then look stale a decade later.

There is ample parking now the development has finished and secure bike stores for cyclists.

The appartment I own (2 bed on 2nd floor) is spacious enough for me and my one flatmate. It keeps it’s heat incredibly well and even during Edinburgh’s coldest days I only have to put the heating on for a couple of hours in the morning abd evening.

The property managers are quick to respond to any issue.

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

This is a fantastic area to live in. Leith seems to be one of the most up and coming areas in Edinburgh. The development is only a mile and a quarter from the city centre.

The development backs directly onto the water of Leith and is only about a mile from the gorgeous Leith docks. Nearby there are many great pubs and cafes, the only shame is that since moving here it’s not been possible to visit them all due to the pandemic.

There are many supermarkets nearby, including a sizeable Lidl and huge Tesco both only a little more than half a mile away towards the bottom of Leith walk.

Leith also has a number of great local parks for dog walkers and young families to take their children to. Victoria park in particular is huge and boasts an impressive set of play equipment for children, alongside publically accessible tennis and basketball courts.

The neighbourhood is nice and quiet and it’s rare to hear of any trouble.

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

That there’s likely to be more major developments right opposite being built in the coming months and years – hoping these don’t block sunlight.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Instead of a Juliette balconey having a proper balconey to sit outside on

Good place to live for professionals, families, retirees – the neighbourhood is generally friendly.
It is quiet with no much trouble although bike thieves are on the hunt at the moment but there are secured bike areas throughout.

The bin area is a bit of an issue as there doesnt seem to be enough bins per block and are often over flowing but that is part council, part resident responsibility.
And as previously stated there is plenty of parking but it being free can be an issue for those who cant use the private parking.

The buildings are cleaned every week and taken care which doesn’t go unnoticed and i hope would be appreciated throughout.

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

It’s quiet despite being in the city centre, there are shops near by and its a 20 minute walk into town. There arent too many transport links directly outside the development but a short walk and there are.

There isnt much green areas in the development but there is pilrig park a short walk away.
Parking is an on going issue, depending on what block you are in you can get a car park pass to a private car park but it is mostly free parking which encourages non residents to park in the spaces.

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

There is a facebook page for the residents, I dont have faecbook but im told that it is where people go to moan and gossip so i would suggest to anyone thinking of moving in to have a look at that to get the vibes of what goes on.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature is how quiet it is here. Despite being city centre it is peaceful.

Quiet, tidy, peaceful development built to a high standard.

The development is in a lovely part of the village next to the park which has a decent amount of open green space with nice views out towards the Cotswolds.

It’s a nice quiet spot with houses well spaced (not crammed together like so many new build developments are), and Miller have clearly been careful to avoid too much “being overlooked” where possible. There’s plenty of parking, though some people do park on the street (3 car households typically).

There are numerous closes, so lots of quiet places to pick. I can’t comment on property or building management as I bought mine but the development itself is kept very clean and tidy.

There’s a nice path around the whole development too which is laid to grass with trees and hedgerows etc.

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

The local co-op has a great range of products and at pretty decent prices. There are several good pubs in the area and some are excellent for food.

There’s a local cafe, a couple of hairdressers, Indian/Chinese/chippy, and a petrol station amongst other things.

We’re about 10mins drive from the M40 in one direction, 10-15 to the A435 into Birmingham in another, and about 25mins to get to the Cotswolds. I work in Warwick and it’s 30mins in standard morning traffic. Warwick Parkway rail station is about 20mins away (direct link to Marylebone) and Honeybourne station is about 15mins (direct link to Paddington).

And of course, the village is right next to the River Avon, and miles of beautiful meadow walks. Everything you’ll need day to day is about 10mins walk from the development (including the riverside).

Antisocial behaviour is minimal – in my 12yrs in the village there have been a small handful of incidents of kids being kids. I feel completely safe here and would recommend it to anyone.

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

The maps illustrating gardens on the plans are extremely optimistic in terms of implied dimensions. I struggled to get any actual dimensions when I asked (I bought before they broke ground on it) so I would push for at least a decent estimate in future.

Also note the site is built on very heavy clay and turf takes a lot of work to keep healthy as it seems like it’s been laid on very thin top soil (if any). I opted to seed a lawn from scratch instead.

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

The couple of very minor issues I’ve had were sorted almost immediately and without question.

Nice place to live, happy with location and house

Generally I think our development is a nice place to live, our house is off main access road so nice and quiet and we have two private parking spaces.

I don’t think they have made enough allowances for visitor parking and parking for residents on main access roads is inadequate and poorly designed, as a result there are cars parked on both sides of the road so creating a single track, zig zag in areas, this could have been avoided by including lay by or bay parking to keep carriageway clear.

Design is generally good.
There are very few facilities except for a small children’s play area… not hot tubs or swimming pools unfortunately 😂

Property management of communal area is very poor, even non existent, we are hoping this will change once construction is completely finished although we have been here for two years and not much has been done to maintain grassy areas, flowers / trees

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

Tetbury is a lovely little town with plenty of character and charm, a few pubs, could benefit from greater range of restaurants.

Good access to countryside and local walks.

Via road it has good access to larger towns, eg Cirencester, access to M4 and M5 motorways also reasonably good.

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

When we viewed our house they were not building and of the neighbouring properties, initially when the three storey townhouses went up all along the edge of our garden I was a bit surprised but I got used to this and it’s not an issue, I would say it’s worth studying site plan before buying a new build property, something I didn’t do.

What is the best feature of your home:

Light and airy feel, our house feels open, spacious and inviting, doors onto the sunny garden help with this.
