Simple Life is set to deliver first homes in the South West!

Construction work is now underway at the former Bower Farm site, located on the eastern edge of the historic town of Bridgwater, where Simple Life will be delivering 100 homes exclusively to rent.


As part of the scheme, Simple Life is marking it’s first partnership with Countryside in the South West to deliver homes in Bridgwater, Somerset. We are excited to be working with Countryside to bring properties in an area which is currently experiencing an undersupply of high-quality, professionally managed rental homes.

Strawberry Grange is well-connected, with transport links that provide easy access to the town centre and the M5 motorway. The launch of the development will also deliver, and fund, a new roundabout providing access to the site and a link to connect a future housing development planned in the Dunwear Lane area.

Kate Tuckey, Development Director, Simple Life Homes, commented:

“We are proud of our longstanding partnership with Countryside, having worked together for over 15 years, and are thrilled to be working on our first deal together in the South West. It was fantastic to be on site to mark this key step forward for Strawberry Grange. We are pleased to be part of Countryside’s first triple-mixed tenure site in the region and are excited to see the development progress over the coming months.

“All our Simple Life homes are pet friendly and come with plenty of space, gardens and fitted appliances and we look forward to serving communities across the South West as we work together to bring professionally managedhigh-quality rental homes to a region facing growing demand.”

Darren Dancey, Managing Director, South West, Countryside, commented:

“I was delighted to celebrate this exciting milestone at our Strawberry Grange development alongside Simple Life Homes. This marks another positive step forward for the scheme and I am pleased to be working with our partners to deliver a much-needed mix of housing for the area. I look forward to developing this partnership further as we continue to expand our footprint in the South West.”

First homes are due to be complete in May 2023. To find out more information and register your interest, click here.
