In an idyllic hamlet far from the clamour of the city, in the shadow of a stately home and neighbouring a handful of houses, is the new Persimmon development at Spetchley. Hardly a mile from the cathedral city of Worcester, and just a four-minute drive to the M5 – your new home in Spetchley is well placed to enjoy the wonderful Worcestershire countryside with easy access to the city.

Watch the seasons come and go at the Spetchley Park Estate Gardens, filled with plenty of ideas for your own garden – and enjoy a cuppa and a homemade cake at the Granary Coffee Shop. If you need to unwind, head to the Soul Sanctuary Yoga Studio or simply enjoy exquisite walks straight from the door, or at nearby Worcester Woods Country Park.

Living in Spetchley

Shopping close to home

While you can enjoy all the trappings of living in a peaceful hamlet, everything you need is in nearby Worcester. Head to the historic city with ancient buildings clustered around the majestic cathedral, shop for high street brands at the Crowngate Shopping Centre or at small independent retailers and craftspeople at the Hop Market Mall. Tour the delicious bakeries and delis, or head to one of the many large supermarkets - you can take your pick with food shopping from your Spetchley new build.

Your new house, well connected

Your new home in Spetchley is just to the east of the M5. It’s halfway between Junctions 6 and 7 which means that it’s tucked away from traffic joining the motorway. If you need to commute into Birmingham, the journey time is around 45 minutes by car or around an hour by train from Worcester railway station. Your new build in Spetchley is just off the A422 Worcester to Stratford-on-Avon (20 miles) road, while the A44 takes you down to Pershore (7 miles) and on to Evesham (12 miles), both are lovely market towns.

Schools near your new build

While your new home in Spetchley is a little removed from facilities, there are plenty of options on the western edges of Worcester in Ronkswood, Whittington and in Lyppard Bourne. Nunnery Wood High School and the Worcester Sixth Form College are close by for secondary education. In the hamlet of Spetchley itself there's also Abigail's Place, an independent school which specialises in helping children aged 5-16 achieve their potential.

Hills and thrills from your new home

Your new house in Spetchley is close to the expansive Spetchley Park Estate Gardens, a wonderful place to explore and enjoy lunch. National Trust Croome Court and Greyfriars House and Gardens are a short drive away as are pretty walks along the Severn and hiking with views across countless counties in the Malvern Hills National Landscape. The Worcester & Birmingham Canal passes through Worcester with 58 locks and five tunnels along its 30-mile length. You can stroll along the towpath or take a boat trip to get the full experience.
