Bampton housetype at Great Western Park

Better job prospects, rising wages and a more stable economy is set to drive a five year wave of activity in house sales and a surge in house price growth, especially in South Oxfordshire. The region has benefited from extensive infrastructure and regeneration investment, and Didcot in particular is a prime example, with house-hunters flocking to the town to take advantage of the region’s strong growth. Now savvy buyers have an even better incentive to purchase in Didcot, with leading housebuilder, Bellway offering Help to Buy on two-bedroom homes at its new development at Great Western Park, as well as Part Exchange for those with a house to sell.

Bellway’s new development, one of several new schemes the housebuilder has acquired in the South Oxfordshire region, is located at Great Western Park, one of the largest property developments in Europe, and is the only scheme to offer two-bedroom homes at the much-anticipated site.
