Park review: Enchanting Warwickshire


New homes and new plots on two Warwickshire parks, one in an idyllic riverside setting close to Stratford-upon-Avon and one on the edge of the Cotswolds…

Welford Chase

Fancy living close to Stratford-upon-Avon? This is one of Britain’s most desirable areas – and there’s a park home estate just four miles from the vibrant town of theatres, restaurants, history and architectural fascination.

Welford Chase is in a peaceful village location. The River Avon runs along one edge of the park and many of the plots overlook the river.

New riverside plots are being created here. Their outlook is magnificent.

Welford Chase is a gated development for the over 50s. All the plots have private gardens and glass-fronted decking. Importantly, this is a pet-friendly park. It’s a small estate, so there’s a feeling of exclusivity.

We visited the park last year and met one resident whose home borders the Avon; he can fish from his decking! His home, and lots of others, too, overlooks a nature reserve island in the river.

This charming park is on the edge of the village of Welford-on-Avon, where a variety of social possibilities are on offer including golf, a pub and bell-ringing! There is a bus stop outside the park.

The Atherstone is a bespoke home exclusive to Avon Estates. A study and massive bedroom are strong features of this home.

The dining area – for six – has double doors to the lounge, creating the flexibility of both an open-plan aspect and the ability to separate the rooms. Like all the show homes, the Atherstone is fully furnished, with fitted kitchens and integrated appliances.

Wessex Dorset Price: £274,000

The Dorset is a distinctive home with a separate kitchen, a hallway and a classically modern décor style of champagne and mulberry shades. The open-plan lounge-dining area wraps around the separate kitchen.

Omar Anniversary Price: £315,000

This home has a stunning layout and a beautiful sunroom! They separate the lounge from the kitchen-dining area with bi-fold doors, so you can open up the living space or have separate rooms. The master bedroom has its own dressing area set behind a half-height feature wall and en suite where there is both a bath and a separate shower.

Wessex Spinney Price: £295,000

The Spinney is full of character and style. The galley kitchen has a split entrance to the lounge. The lounge-dining area has a cosy, natural feel created by a log burner-effect electric stove in the centre, stacked log style wallpaper and a rustic dining table and benches.

The master bedroom has a four-poster bed with a feature panelled wall with small recesses (with lighting and USB points). With both a utility room and a study, this home has exceptional practicality.

Marston Edge

Marston Edge Spinney

Marston Edge sits between the two villages of Lower Quinton and Long Marston, bordering the Cotswolds and just 10 minutes from Stratford-upon-Avon. The park has a lovely aspect, edged by farmland.

Huge and very elegant security gates are at the entrance of this development for the over 50s. The plots all have private gardens, blocked paved driveways and rural views. Show homes are on the park and you can take your pick from several plots ranging from 40ft by 20ft to 55ft by 20ft already completed and ready for your new home.

The park is in a delightful rural setting but is actually close to several amenities including a local shop and gym, less than a mile away at a leisure centre, a pub (the sixteenth century College Arms), plus a Waitrose supermarket (five miles away).

In addition, a few minutes’ walk from the park, there is a huge and fascinating antique centre called The Barn, with a café and, a short distance away, a garden centre.

The ‘accent’ is firmly on light and bright in this home. Two skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows are in the lounge. The glass triple pendant light over the dining table is among the amazing features. The kitchen is in an almost alcove style – but this is a big alcove. This home has a study.
