Image for Somerset dream becomes reality for upsizers

When a daughter flying the nest didn't create quite as much space as they expected, the Palmer family's house hunting in Wincanton didn't take them far - just two doors down the street to be exact!

Moving from a three-bed to a four-bed property at Bovis Homes' The Chase location was achieved with a minimum of fuss, and mum and dad Claire and Andy are even more delighted with their brand new home than they were with their first at the development - as are daughters Adele (19) and Natalie (16).

The Palmers made their dream move to Somerset from Bracknell in October 2016 and settled into the three-bedroom Bear... more

Image for Dream move for Botley family

Moving house with two young children can be a challenge for any parents, but for Chris and Harriet Betts it couldn't have been easier.

Relocating from Basingstoke to the outskirts of Southampton, the area where they first met, Chris and Harriet discovered Bovis Homes' Boorley Park in the village of Botley.

"We met while at Southampton University and Chris grew up in Hampshire, so we already had a network of family and friends in the area," says Harriet, an out-of-hours supervisor for the NHS. "We had bought a new-build home previously, so we were looking to buy new again and had a look around Botley. The village is just perfect for us - it's just out of town, so there are still shops close by and it's only 20 minutes into the centre... more
