With its prime location just a short walk from Holmes Chapel, Bellway Homes’ Brooklands development on Marsh Lane is proving to be a hit with one particular family, with father and mother and then daughter all buying at the scheme.

First to buy was Harry and Carol Brett.  They previously lived in Altrincham but wanted to be closer to their daughter Paula Yarwood, her partner Umut Karan and their children Isla (aged 7), Emilia (aged 7) and Jack (aged 9) who lived in Chelford.


After doing some research in the area, Harry and Carol came across Brooklands and were impressed with the modern properties at the development and its close proximity to the village.


Harry says: “Although we were downsizing, we wanted a spacious home that was also well located for myself and Carol to enjoy a lovely village lifestyle.  Brooklands ticked all the boxes; Holmes Chapel is a very nice village with everything that we need and the properties at the development are well designed, modern and built to a very high standard.”


The couple bought the Oakwood house type, a four bedroom detached home, and have settled in immediately.


Harry continues: “It was a pleasure dealing with Bellway Homes.  The Oakwood has a great floor layout, is well insulated and comes with a good-sized garden, which Carol and I enjoy.”


After visiting her parents in their new home, Paula, who was renting in Chelford, decided to buy at Brooklands too, also purchasing an Oakwood.


Paula says: “The children go to school in Chelford, so we chose to rent there, but the houses are just too expensive to buy.  The children will ultimately go to high school in Holmes Chapel, so looking ahead, we wanted to buy in the area and loved the properties at Brooklands.  Plus, the village is great with lots of amenities.


“After seeing mum and dad’s Oakwood, the whole family loved the layout of the house and with four bedrooms, it meant that the children could each have their own bedroom.  The open-plan kitchen and family room is fantastic.”


Paula and Umut took advantage of the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme.


Paula concludes: “The children love the development and the space it offers; they can ride their bikes and roller skate.  With other families living here too it is a very friendly development and the children all play together.  And the children can’t wait to decorate their own rooms in the new year – the girls already have it planned!


“We feel very much at home at Brooklands.  Even living three doors from my parents (the closest I have lived to them for 20 years) is great!!  It really is a family affair at Brooklands.”


Ideally located in the village of Holmes Chapel surrounded by stunning Cheshire countryside, yet just 25 miles from Manchester city centre and only 20 miles from Stockport, Warrington and Stoke, Brooklands is a beautiful development providing a selection of four bedroom detached homes.  Prices start from £317,995.
