Our Neighbours Moved


When Dale (36) and Karis (28) Rowe’s neighbours moved to Bloor Homes’ Hinckley Park development in Leicestershire, it was the catalyst to their decision to move there as well, upsizing from a three bedroom to a brand new four bedroom property.

Dale Rowe, a Regional Sales Manager comments: “Living next door to our close friends for four years was great; we were both living on the outskirts of Hinckley and grew close over the years. Back in August 2013 we found out we were expecting a baby, and were undecided whether moving to a larger property was the right time. When I found out our friends were moving to the new Bloor Homes development, it gave us the confidence we needed to move too.”

“We viewed the show house when it opened, and fell in love with the property. The build quality surpassed anything we’ve seen before and we couldn’t wait to move in and settle before the baby arrived. It was just our luck that the whole process of selling our home and moving in happened in around 6 weeks. We now live in a Bredon housetype, which backs onto a mature garden which is very peaceful, ideal for a little one! We now live more closely to the centre of Hinckley which means we are within walking distance of all our friends and family.”

Moving to Hinckley Park couldn’t be easier thanks to Home Exchange. It’s a great opportunity for homeowners who are keen to move into a larger home to accommodate a growing family but can’t sell their existing property or are stuck in a long chain.  With Bloor’s 100% Home Exchange scheme, buyers at Hinckley Park can complete their purchase and move house in just a few weeks. 

When you express an interest in buying a Bloor home through their Home Exchange scheme, one of their sales consultants will discuss the scheme with you and ensure your existing property matches their standard criteria. Bloor will then commission three independent market valuations of your existing property. 

Bloor Homes will purchase the property from you and take on full responsibility for selling it. Once contracts are signed you will be free to move into your new home as soon as it is completed.

The town of Hinckley has good local amenities, including a busy high street and bustling market, as well as the Ashby Canal, where you can hire a narrow boat or enjoy the scenic views on a boat trip.  The town is home to non-league football team, Hinckley United, Hinckley Rugby Club, which plays in national leagues and a respected local cricket club.

Hinckley has good transport links with access to the Midlands rail network.  Hinckley Park is also well placed for the M69, which provides fast links to the M6 and the M1 for easy access to Coventry, Leicester, Birmingham and the rest of the UK.
