Housebuilder Highlights Reasons To Move To Leicestershire Development

Posted 28 March 2023 by Helen Christie

David Wilson Homes has shared some of the benefits of moving to its New Lubbesthorpe development in Leicestershire…

WhatHouse? Award-winning developer David Wilson Homes is highlighting benefits of the location of its thriving development New Lubbesthorpe in Leicester, following the launch of its latest phase of properties.

The location of New Lubbesthorpe has been praised by many David Wilson Homes customers as an ideal place to move to, as its proximity to Leicester, commuter links to London, and the nearby country parks means it is cost-effective and ideally placed for working professionals and families, and those wanting to live in a peaceful setting surrounded by countryside can remain connected to the city.

Travel connections

New Lubbesthorpe is located just over six miles away from Leicester train station, meaning that London is accessible in just over an hour. The development is also around six miles away from the centre of Leicester, giving residents access to a range of independent shops, bars, and markets, as well as major chain stores in the Highcross and Haymarket shopping centres.

Sporting facilities

The sought-after village has plenty of leisure and sporting facilities nearby. Leicester Forest Rugby Football Club is close to the development, and has children’s rugby teams, as well as sports camps run by the Leicester Tigers in the school holidays.

Members of the community can visit CEL Sports Coaching and Fitness Studio, where children can receive coaching in cricket, football, and other sports.

Entertainment facilities

One of the many reasons to move to Lubbesthorpe is its proximity to entertainment facilities nearby. Meridian Park is just under two miles away, and has plenty of restaurant and activity options, including a cinema, bowling alley and a gym.

For residents wanting to experience one of Britain's biggest out-of-town shopping parks, Fosse Park is just 3.5 miles away, and has a large selection of chain shops, including Primark and T K Maxx, as well as a large food court, which includes Dunkin’ Doughnuts, KFC, Itsu and more.


For families with children moving into the area, there are plenty of schooling options to choose from. New Lubbesthorpe Primary School is on the development, Lilliput Montessori Day Nursery is just under a mile away, and for those with older children, The Winstanley School is just three miles away.

Open space 

The New Lubbesthorpe development has 250 acres of open space, parkland and tree lined boulevards, and gives residents the perfect opportunity to get out into nature and explore the local area. 

The open space not only makes the perfect place to enjoy a peaceful walk, run or cycle, but it’s also a great day out for families with children. There is a designated play space on the land, as well as walking paths and open green space.

Rachael Harrison, sales director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, says: “Our New Lubbesthorpe development has been a superb hotspot for prospective homeowners since its inception. We’re encouraging anyone looking to become a part of this flourishing community to accelerate their move and take the next step on the housing ladder. Lubbesthorpe is a thriving village location due to its breath-taking rural surroundings coupled with the convenient shops, pub, takeaways and medical centre on the doorstep. As such, we’re excited to see our journey at New Lubbesthorpe draw closer to completion once we match the remainder of our properties with some happy homeowners.”

New Lubbesthorpe currently has a selection of two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom properties available, with prices starting from £269,995.
