Sam’s ‘moving’ recommendation as his mum celebrates Mother’s Day in new home

9 Mar 2024

Mother’s Day this year will be even more heartfelt for Sam Pritchard now his mum is happily living in a new home at Bishop’s Garden in Wickham.

Sam, a Quantity Surveyor at Bewley Homes, was working at the company’s new development in the popular Hampshire market town and thought it would be perfect for his mum who was looking to downsize in the area.

Laura Pritchard and her partner were living in Hedge End and were hoping to move somewhere quieter with more character.

Laura commented: “When Sam told me about Bishop’s Gardens I thought it could be just what we were looking for and we weren’t disappointed. We went for a viewing and immediately fell in love with the location, position of the houses and how close it is to Wickham centre. You can walk there in five minutes!”

Laura, who is an architectural designer for Carlton Design in Southampton, knew all about Bewley’s reputation for building quality homes. She moved into a semi-detached two-bedroom home which has a lovely sized back garden with tree-lined views.

“We are so happy here and it has all worked out very well. The site team were brilliant and worked so hard to finish our home on time. Our experience has been so positive and I can’t recommend Bewley enough. We are looking forward to spending Mother’s Day at one of the lovely restaurants in the town!”

Sam added: “It’s lovely to see mum so happy here. Working at Bewley Homes has given me a deep appreciation for the quality and care we put into every home we build. When she was looking for a new home, I didn’t hesitate to recommend this development and it’s all worked out so well.”

Elaine Stratford, Sales and Marketing Director at Bewley Homes, commented: “It’s heartwarming to see how this move has been so positive for Laura and it’s a testimony to Bewley’s reputation that Sam felt he could wholeheartedly recommend it to his mum.”

With its lively cafes, character pubs, restaurants, local bakery, butcher and independent shops dotted around the pretty square there is plenty of things going on locally in Wickham. Not to mention the wonderful country and riverside walks in the heart of Hampshire’s Meon Valley. There’s easy access to the cathedral cities of Winchester and Chichester and excellent road (M3/M27) and rail connections via Fareham, Portsmouth, or Southampton to London, the south coast and West Country.

Bishop’s Gardens offers a range of two, three and four bedroom homes, priced from £339,950. For more information 0808 173 0009 or visit
