Discover our superior collection of 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes at Arborfield Green, a new garden village being constructed on the former Arborfield Garrison in the Berkshire countryside, combining the best of town and country living. Whether you're looking for your first step on the property ladder or a home to fit your growing family, choose from our superb mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced homes - each with superior Bloor build quality as standard. Our development is ideally placed just 4.6 miles west of Wokingham, 8.2 miles south of Reading and within easy reach of the M4 and fast trains to London and beyond from Reading’s superb rail network.

Why buy at Lakeside Gardens?

Arborfield Green combines new woodland areas and wildlife habitats with the site’s rich, established landscape and military heritage, making this new neighbourhood a truly unique place to live. Arborfield’s residents will enjoy a new convenience store, cafes and healthcare facilities in addition to a newly built secondary school providing state-of-the-art facilities for local children, as well as a new primary school.

Our development is approximately one mile south-east of Arborfield Cross, a historic village with 15th century cottages, a village shop ideal for day to day requirements and a popular pub and restaurant, The Bull Inn. Additionally 24 acres of sports pitches and a cricket pavilion, 4 km of cycleways, children’s play areas and a number of open green spaces designed to attract residents and dog walkers, offering many ways to enjoy the outdoors, are within our plans.

The historic buildings of this area will not be forgotten and will be protected to embrace and integrate the historical significance of the Garrison into the new community. Indeed the horse infirmary stables have already been beautifully restored ready for new community use overlooking a new village green and, with so many other exciting plans in place, Lakeside Gardens will be a place where families can flourish.

Transport in and around Arborfield

Our development is just a short distance from the M4 junction 11, A33 and A329M. From the M4 there is easy access in to London, Heathrow Airport, the West Country and the M25. The bustling towns of Wokingham and Reading are found just 4.6 and 8.2 miles away respectively and London can be reached in just 30 minutes from the superb rail network in Reading.  Wokingham train station also has regular and reliable services to Reading and Waterloo. The Crossrail link will soon run from Reading and is due for completion in 2022.

Reading station is a major junction point of National Rail and railway lines link Reading to both London Paddington and London Waterloo.  At peak times trains to London take just 27 minutes.  Reading Station also connects with trains to Oxford, Birmingham and the North, the West country, South Wales and the South Coast.

There is also to be a new bus route running through the development to link to the extended village centre.


Designed to be largely self-sufficient, Lakeside Gardens will offer allotments where you will be able to enjoy growing your own fruit and vegetables. The nearby Hazebrouck Meadows is the place to be for outdoor enthusiasts, with its links through to the stunning California Country Park.

Within a short drive, Wokingham town centre can be reached where a wide range of shops are found from high street favourites to one-off quirky independent shops. Wokingham also holds several markets and has a wide range of cafes and popular restaurants.  Reading town centre must not be forgotten being one of the UK’s top retail destinations with The Oracle and Broad Street Mall which offer independent shops and high street stores. The town centre, which sits on the river, is dotted with restaurants and other popular eateries offering a wide range of international favourites. The town is also known as being the home of The Hexagon theatre, a multi-purpose venue, and boasts six museums and the ancient Abbey Ruins, burial place of Henry I. There are events and festivals here throughout the year – the biggest and most famous being Reading Festival, running since 1971, the second largest UK music festival after Glastonbury.

Further afield, but just half an hour away, the historic town of Windsor is rich in history and royal tradition.  This riverside town offers an eclectic range of shops and restaurants and its narrow cobbled streets are perfect for exploring.  It is also the home of Windsor Castle, the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world, a must-see attraction and a favoured residence of the Queen.

All in all, you’ll find it’s easy to live life to the full here – especially in a new Bloor home of your own at Lakeside Gardens.
