Image for Holiday surprise for Christina after visit to Bovis Homes' Devon location

Christina Addyman could never have guessed that a spur of the moment decision to visit Bovis Homes' Marine Drive location in Teignmouth would lead to a holiday for her and her family - but that is exactly what happened!

Christina and her sons Tom (14) and Alex (12) were taking a tour of the show homes at Marine Drive, and while there entered the house builder's Holiday Heat Wave prize draw. A few weeks later, the family were stunned to discover that they had won the South West prize and had secured a £500 holiday voucher.

"I was so shocked!" says Christina, who lives in Dawlish with her sons and partner, Marcus. "I had heard a lot about the homes, so we decided to take a look around as we are thinking about moving to Teignmouth. While we were there the sales advisor, Theresa, asked if we would like to enter the competition and I thought 'why not?' - I never dreamt tha... more

Image for Armed Forces discount helps Chris lay down roots

For Chris Sharrott, working in the Armed Forces has meant moving home a lot - in fact, soon he'll be heading off to New Zealand to take up a temporary new posting. But before travelling halfway across the world, Chris decided it was time to put down some roots - a place he could return to and call home - in Cheshire, close to where he grew up.

"I hadn't been actively looking to buy a house, because of the nature of my job. But I had owned a house when I was based in Cheshire previously, and getting back on the property ladder was part of my long-term thinking," explains Chris, who is stationed at RAF Shawbury in nearby Shropshire.

Thanks to a tip-off from his mum, Chris found out about Bovis Homes' unique Armed Forces Discount Scheme, available across the country, including at the house builder's Hampton Lea location i... more
