Persimmon Homes


The pretty market town of Evesham is dominated by the River Avon that horseshoes through its centre, trailing with it green space, parks and playgrounds. Your new home, Evesham, is surrounded by open countryside and farms with orchards filled with apples, pears and plums. In summer, the blossom trees dominate the landscape with white and pink confetti.

Aside from the beauty, Evesham is a lovely place to live, well catered for with education and healthcare services. There are plenty of shops to explore from your new build, both high street names and quirky independents as well as coffee shops, cafes, restaurants and good old-fashioned pubs. Don’t forget to visit the Boat Lane Brewery with a dedicated sample room to taste the micro-brewery’s wares – or enjoy one of the many events where local beers and ciders are always on tap!
