Persimmon Homes


Shrewsbury is an attractive market town with a pleasant array of half timbered Tudor houses arranged around cobbled streets, just nine miles from the Welsh border. Set in the rolling hills of the Shropshire countryside, your new home in Shrewsbury is close to the great outdoors, but also at the heart of a charming and dynamic community.

From your quality new build, you can enjoy quality of life with lovely river front cafes and restaurants as well as excellent shopping with independent vendors, high street shops and boutiques. There are also listed buildings, a cathedral and acres of parks and green spaces.

The town also has beautiful gardens – one designed by the late Percy Thrower – and excellent independent and state schools. Choosing a new house in Shrewsbury gives you it all.

Day to day living in Shrewsbury

Shopping in your new home, Shrewsbury is excellent. Head to the town centre for every shop you could think of from books to bric-a-brac, outdoor to objet d’art and fashion to pharmacy – it’s got it all. And if you’d like a shopping centre or two, Shrewsbury can oblige with the Darwin Centre and Parade Shops.

If you’ve shopped till you dropped, the town can provide medical assistance with drop-in cover, GPs and two hospitals. The Quarry Swimming and Fitness Centre and the Shrewsbury Sports Village offer great facilities to stay fit and healthy. And if you need schools with glowing reports, Shrewsbury is home to a great choice of primary, secondary, faith, independent and SEN. If you’re looking for a new build in Shrewsbury, close to all amenities, Persimmon Homes may just have built your next new home.

Great road links from your new build

The A5 hugs the south of Shrewsbury, bypassing the town and offering great links to Telford (17 miles), Wolverhampton (32 miles) and onto Birmingham (48 miles) which is around an hour's drive. Take the scenic A458 to the west, and you could be eating icecream and building sandcastles in Barmouth (65 miles) in less than 90 minutes. Leave your new build in Shrewsbury for the A49 south and you could be in Ludlow (30 miles), Leominster (41 miles) or Hereford (54 miles) before you know it! 

Close to your new home, Shrewsbury has a very handy railway station with services into Wales and across the Midlands. Trains to Chester and Birmingham will take around an hour, or into London could take around 2.5 hours. Arriva busses operate services around Shrewsbury, and to Telford, Oswestry and some of the other outlying towns and villages.

High energy fun for everyone

Your new home in Shrewsbury is full of history and culture, but also entertainments. Head to the Quarry from your new build and enjoy walks along the riverside park, a playground, and splash park. If having a new house in Shrewsbury makes you want to jump for joy, head to the Jump In Trampoline Park. Watch the latest blockbuster at Cineworld Cinema or smash it at AMF Bowling. With this much entertainment in town, you shouldn't be climbing the walls - unless you want to - and Climbing the Walls, a state-of-the-art indoor climbing centre, can oblige.
