Natalie scores a hat-trick with Peveril Homes!

Busy mum of four Natalie recently moved into her new home at the Smalley Manor development. It’s the third property she has purchased from Peveril Homes, and here she tells us why…

Natalie Garwood has been a Peveril Homes resident since she made her very first step onto the property ladder in 1998, buying a 3-bedroom detached home at Sovereign Fields in Heanor.

Natalie explains: “I had just finished university and made a move back to my home area after securing a job in Nottingham. I visited Sovereign Fields and immediately loved the development; there was a play park across the road and such a wonderful, neighbourly feel to the area.”

Natalie lived in her first Peveril home for eight years, in which time she was married and welcomed her first two children. As time went by Natalie was keen to find a larger home, with more space for her growing family.

“We were lucky enough to find a fabulous, larger 4-bedroom Peveril property, just around the corner in a lovely cul de sac, where we lived for 15-years and had two more children.”

When some life changes instigated a fresh start for the family, Natalie chatted to a close friend, who had recently purchased a property on the Smalley Manor development in Derbyshire’s Amber Valley Region.

“I went to look at the show home and I was immediately sold! The layout of the property was just ideal for us, and I fell in love with it instantly!”

Smalley Manor is a modern development of sought-after contemporary properties which takes advantage of country and suburban living; nestled just six miles from Derby in the village of Smalley.




“Having purchased two previous Peveril Homes, I knew that the build quality is excellent and had no doubt I was making the right choice. From start to finish, everyone on the Peveril Homes team was friendly and helpful.”

The development works perfectly for family life, giving Natalie and her children the freedom to explore the local area on foot and take advantage of the countryside setting.

“The children love their new house and everyone who visits thinks it’s perfect for us. The children’s school is within walking distance. We also love being so close to the country park and can enjoy everything the local area has to offer.

“The development is very well thought out; it has a spacious feel and the distance between the plots means we are not overlooked. Plus, the house itself offers great space; ideal for the children as they grow and also helpful for when I have to work from home.”

Natalie and her children enjoyed a smooth transition into their new home, and Sales Executive Marie was on hand to answer any questions or help when needed.

“Marie was so helpful and supportive from start to finish; quick at replying to any enquiries I had and on top of any requests or snagging questions. We were shown around, given a great demo, went through all appliance warranties, and received a lovely Welcome Pack. The process overall was exceptionally smooth.

“I do miss my neighbours and the memories of the old house, but this house is amazing, and we have definitely made the right choice to buy our third Peveril home at Smalley Manor.”
