Oakmere seeks out prime locations for new developments with access to good schools, local amenities and transport networks so you know your home will not only be easy to sell in the future, but it will be right for you and your family.
Janette Borodin, The Oaks, Longtown
"The team at Oakmere were so accommodating and so helpful in progressing the purchase of the bungalow. They treated me like an individual with a very personal approach, rather than just another customer - nothing was too much trouble. I had already sold my own home and they really went the extra mile to get me moved into the bungalow"
"I love the modern bathroom and fitted kitchen, and the bungalow offers a very good standard of finish both inside and outside - it has real kerb appeal, right down to the block-paved drive. As soon as I moved in - it just felt like home"
Dave and Kate Dickinson, Riverside View, Kendal
"Thank you so much for the super contact Oakmere have provided and the wonderful plumbers who have been to solve the problem. We really do appreciate the wonderful after care"
Derek Brookfield, The Orchards, Bolton Le Sands
"Thank you so much for helping with my house purchase and move"
"It has been a lovely experience and made better by your patience and consideration"
Graham and Sophie Lumsden, The Orchards, Bolton Le Sands
"We would like to thank you for all your help, time, advise, and patience over the past few months. It feels like our lovely new home wouldn't have been possible without you"
Thomas and Jess Proctor, The Orchards, Bolton Le Sands
"We definitely wanted 3 bedrooms and a new home was our preferred choice. The modern specification in terms of energy efficiency and the 10 year NHBC guarantee should make it low maintenance"
"We were also very impressed with the detailing of the home - nice little touches in the design - and particularly the high quality of the fitted SieMatic kitchen"
"Moving in was absolutely trouble free and any minor issues we have come across since then have quickly been sorted by Oakmere and their site representative Janet, who really stays on top of things"
Helen Elliott, The Oaks, Longtown
"The Oaks development itself is lovely and so are the people there. I surprised myself by buying a bungalow; I always thought they were for old people who had trouble getting about, but it is wonderfully practical with all the advantages of an apartment, except that you have a private garden and drive, and of course you don’t have anyone living above or below you."
"I have been very impressed with the quality of the build and the thoughtful touches, like a hard-wired doorbell, exterior lights, external water tap, soft closing cupboard doors and the general high quality of the kitchen. But most of all I have been impressed with how easy Oakmere were to deal with on the part exchange and the move – they just made it all happen.”
Andrew and Wendy Wilkinson, The Oaks, Longtown
"The build quality is excellent with high levels of insulation to keep down heating bills, and The Oaks is in a good location for us – easy to get onto the motorway or into Carlisle for work. It is very quiet and we get on with the neighbours – so it has all worked out very well.”
David and Ingrid Young, The Oaks, Longtown
"The bungalow at The Oaks suits our needs perfectly. Because it is brand new there are no worries about maintenance or repairs; whenever you buy an older house you generally find something needs doing or replacing, whether it is electrical wiring or a new boiler, but the fact that it is brand new with a 10 year NHBC guarantee removes all that worry."
"We wanted a bungalow where we could enjoy our retirement and now we have one – perfect.”
Peter Goode, The Oaks, Longtown
"The Oaks is just a few yards away from where I used to live and I knew they were building houses but I didn't realise they also built bungalows. Oakmere bought my existing home which left me free to move into the new bungalow."
"It is brilliant having everything on one level; when I was travelling up and down the country I always used to sleep in the lorry cab so I didn't have much experience of posh hotels but that first night in the bungalow I thought ‘this is what it must be like'.”
