Persimmon Homes


Sandbach is the quintessential English market town. The rich history of the area is apparent everywhere, from the Anglo Saxon monuments, to the once busy canal, that today bobs with colourful narrowboats. The schools are excellent – one was founded in 1677 – as is the quality of life of living in a market town.

At the centre of Sandbach is a pretty cobbled market, surrounded by half-timbered Tudor buildings with excellent independent shops, high street brands and quaint pubs. Your new build home is close to the weekly market with over 80 stalls - and there’s even a monthly Makers Market for local crafts. Your new home in Sandbach is just a mile from the M6, so travelling north or south, for business or pleasure, is easy too.

Living in Sandbach

Day to day from your new home

A new build in Sandbach is a great choice for families, downsizers or people looking to put down roots. It has natural beauty and great amenities including sought after schools, a leisure centre and easy commutes via the nearby M6. 

Elizabeth I granted Sandbach its Market Charter and the market remains today, held every Thursday with The Makers Market offering local crafts and produce every month. The Sandbach Christmas Market is one of the best in Cheshire, walkable from your new build in Sandbach. If you're looking for easy places to do a weekly shop, your new home Sandbach can oblige with two national supermarkets.  

Easy road links on your doorstep

Cheshire, with its beautiful plains, quaint market towns and cosy villages has long been a favourite place to call home. Sandbach is one of the most beautiful market towns in the county and has proximity to the motorway network too. Your new build in Sandbach has the M6 running past the town, connecting Birmingham (57 miles) to Manchester (30 miles) and Scotland. The M56 branches off from the M6 with easy links to Manchester Airport (33 miles) and the M60 Manchester ring road. To the south, the M6 heads to Birmingham via Stoke-on-Trent (17 miles) and Stafford (30 miles).

Your new home, Sandbach has a railway station and with Crewe (7 minutes), Manchester (43 minutes) and London Paddington (2 hours 11) it's well positioned for travel across the UK. There is a bus service operating in the region of your new Sandbach home, with Arriva and D & G Buses serving the Cheshire East region.

Great days out from your new build

Your new house in Sandbach is well placed for a walk to the market square to shop or just to meet friends for a drink or a meal. You could workout at the leisure centre, or go for a kickaround or a family picnic in the local park. For adventures further afield, take a drive from your new build home to the Brereton Heath Local Nature Reserve on the Congleton Road - where you can try your hand at angling or canoeing. 

Historic Chester, with its beautiful cathedral and cobbled streets surrounded by Tudor half-timbered houses, is one of the most beautiful days out in the region. The shops and boutiques that line Chester's streets are truly awe-inspiring, as is the dining in the city. If you're feeling adventurous, go for one of the boat trips on the river or take a tour around the world-famous zoo.

If you enjoy walking or biking, the rolling hills of the Welsh Borders or the dramatic Peak District National Park are just a short drive from your new build home. Cheshire’s verdant flat countryside, stretching for miles from your new property, will captivate you.
