Purchaser at Lioncourt development thrilled with dream home

Sanchia Barlow moved into her Lioncourt home at Cotswold Gate, Burford, in November 2021 and shared her experience almost a year on:

“After living in Oxford for a number of years, I decided that as I was getting older, living in a busy city was no longer where I wanted to be.

It was upon my visit to Burford Garden Centre that I spotted a sign in the field opposite stating that the land had been acquired by Lioncourt Homes. I visit the garden centre regularly and know the Burford area well – the idea of moving there certainly appealed to me! I particularly loved the idea of a market town and Burford seemed to fit the bill perfectly.


As well as the location, a big factor for me when deciding to purchase a new-build home was the improved insulation, in comparison to an older home. After living in a Victorian property for several years, which was extremely cold and expensive to heat, I loved the thought of reducing my heating bills! It was also evident when looking at previous Lioncourt developments online and the floorplan of my house type further down the line that the rooms would be light, airy and spacious – exactly how I wanted them to be. Lastly, I knew the area of Burford as a quiet place to be and could really visualise myself being happy there.


As well as ticking my three boxes, the five-star rating was also very important to me. I had never purchased a new-build property before – knowing that Lioncourt Homes had received this award for many consecutive years I found to be very reassuring when reserving my property.

Once I reached the stage of deciding on my choices for my home, both the sales and build teams were fantastic. Even down to deciding on the placement of my ceiling lights in my kitchen… Everybody I dealt with went above and beyond to ensure I was happy with my home. I felt like the team really cared about me and were extremely informative through the entire process of purchasing my home.

Personally, I would certainly recommend buying from Lioncourt – I feel extremely privileged and happy to now have my dream home!”
