Essentials on your doorstep

Whitworth Biopark

Burton Woods has its very own wildlife haven for native plants and animals.

• In 2008, we started transforming an area of land around Burton Woods to help protect and enhance local wildlife.

• This biopark has attracted many rare and special animal species – such as bats, barn owls and roe dear – and encouraged declining species like toads, newts and farmland birds to return.

• There are lots of ways to take advantage of countryside living – why not wander through the parkland, walkways and footpaths around Burton Woods to explore this beautiful location for yourself?

Design touches that make a difference

Our homes are filled with design details that really impress, helping us to stand out from competitors and our 5 star builder status gives you confidence that your new home is built to the highest standard.

All of our homes offer their own unique features as well as universal qualities typical to Barratt homes, such as fitted kitchens, French doors bringing the outside in and open plan, flexible living areas.
