The estate is beautiful and the houses all look well done and kept.

The estate is beautiful and the houses all look well done and kept. The sale was lovely and easy and I couldn’t speak higher of Caroline, she’s fantastic! I wish I could say that same about the site manager, however, that isn’t the case, I find him extremely uncooperative, rude and a liar. Clearly someone that shouldn’t work customer facing. Which is such a shame as the first site manager we had, Hayden, was brilliant! I feel it’s important to mention here that we aren’t just one disgruntled house, a large number of neighbours have also commented similar thoughts to us about him, our snagging issues aren’t bad, and we haven’t had a big blow out with him in any way shape or form, so god knows what he is like with the big problems. The facilities are good, but I think the park could been improved to make it a bit bigger and more toys for the kids. The layout of the development is great too, we don’t feel that we are overlooked badly and it’s also not boring with nice little twists and turns and different sized housing is nicely placed. I can’t wait for more green areas to be finished too. It’s important to say also that whilst you can’t pick your neighbours, everyone on the estate is so lovely too.

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

The local area is fantastic, you are really close to a number of supermarkets, half way between Bradford and Leeds so have a great amount of choice. Very close to the airport but have no noise pollution from it. We don’t get any traffic noise here but we are also at the top of the development where you would expect to not get a lot of traffic. We have had no problems here and have actually found the community that have ma been created here, amazing! The community here is fantastic too and we have come together to build a book swapping box and have security message groups and a really helpful and friendly Facebook group.

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

Electric and water metres, we struggled to set up our accounts as our address couldn’t be found. Other than that I feel that everything was very clear to us

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

Be able to use the loft space, garden more usable from day one as we had to get an outside company in to patio parts, as did about 5 houses on our street in the same month haha.

Lovely development

The estate itself is quite small. I personally love where our property is situated as it’s on a close tucked out of the way.

I do find though that the bend on the approach to our house, although slight, has caused visibility issues and club that with cars that are fast (another issue), it can be tricky to exit the close.

The greenery/shrubbery/trees are all great on site. Some, initially wouldn’t grow due to wind and also being close to concrete edging. However some have flourished a lot recently.

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

Beacon Park is situated on the outskirts of Garstang where there are ample schools, supermarkets and a GP. Situated next to the development is a new retail area that has a co-op, pizzeria, hairdressers, desert place and a bar. It is definitely an upcoming area with lots of new build developments and new businesses starting in the local vicinity.

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

Issues with broadband!!! As we were first on the development, we had a lot of issues with the broadband provider. Also you need to order bins which catches you out.

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

Yes- sometimes they have been very slow. Sometimes not. I have had to report an issue repeatedly and it remains outstanding 3 years on. This is disappointing and let’s the experience down. However, generally, the build quality etc is very good and small problems have been addressed.

Great Location, Poor Management and Dead Trees

Playground is fairly basic which is a bit disappointing however the children still manage to play well on it. The landscaping is disappointing in terms of some of the trees planted have died and don’t seem to be getting replaced. Management fees are again a disappointment but feel it’s also down to local government funding cuts that now lead to this being the way things are done these days. Final disappointment is the Snicket that’s left behind our rear garden. This seems like such a waste of space as I’ve seen other developers build right to the gabions which really would give the garden a nicer feel and more space / stop any potential anti social behaviour in those spaces. Otherwise great road widths, odd numbering systems but the location was the key selling point for us.

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

Excellent access to local shops/pubs. The Leeds and Liverpool canal is close by for easy walks. Train station is 15min walk away.

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

Just how delayed everything was. Still leaves a sour taste and really was the most unnecessary stress that was put on a new young family.

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

The garden should be 2m longer – build to the gabion. This would also reduce maintenance fees.

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.
