Now welcoming new residents from near and far, sales advisers at Barratt Homes’ Ceres Rise development have put together a Door-ienteering Guide to help its homeowners get to know what’s on their doorstep.

Ceres Rise is ideally located on the edge of the picturesque town of Swaffham and as people begin to settle into their new homes, the guide has been developed as a way to inform new homeowners of the area’s rich variety of things to do, as well as ways to get involved within their new communities.

The site is nearby to a selection of heritage sites including Castle Acre Castle, The Priory and Oxburgh Hall. Residents will also be close to the Norfolk coastline and Thetford Forest. This could be the ideal time for new residents to explore Swaffham and the wide variety of pubs and eateries offered in the town a short walk away.

Sales adviser Lacie is now an expert of Ceres Rise, and is spreading her knowledge of the local area to help residents get to know their new home.

Green open space on your doorstep

In a survey conducted by ShowHouse, homebuyers ranked green space as the most important feature in a new build, with over 30% of respondents opting for green space as the most important feature to consider when buying a home.

Lacie says: “Residents of Ceres Rise will have easy access to a number of green open spaces. The development is surrounded by countryside and footpaths perfect for a Sunday morning stroll. There are also a range of Heritage Sites for residents to explore and walk around including Oxburgh Hall and The Priory, as well as Thetford Forest.”

Get active and support the local community

The town of Swaffham has a number of sports teams including Swaffham Cricket Club, who received a donation of equipment from the five star homebuilder earlier in the year.

Lacie continues: “After the success of The Hundred, cricket is seeing more people pick up the sport than ever before. For any budding Joe Roots, Jos Butlers or Lauren Winfield Hills, Swaffham Cricket Club offers the opportunity to get involved in the sport with the Cricket Club on the doorstep of Ceres Rise development."

A great starting point

Ceres Rise is the perfect place to host and socialize with friends and family as Swaffham has a wide variety of restaurants, shops and pubs.

Lacie says: “One of the main benefits of Ceres Rise’s location is being so close to the town of Swaffham. The town has all the amenities needed for the building blocks of family life including multiple schools and sports clubs, as well as a doctor’s surgery and a vet. The town also has a range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants to discover.”

Commuting is a breeze

With many people now adopting the hybrid style of working, Ceres Rise offers commuters direct links to ensure the journey is as smooth as possible. The development’s position means residents will benefit from quick access to the A47.

Lacie adds: “There’s no doubt the development is going to be a hit with working professionals due to its location, with its great connections and great rail links in the nearby town of Downham Market or Kings Lynn.”

Will Phair, sales director at Barratt Homes Cambridgeshire, says: “As Lacie has shown, Ceres Rise is perfectly located for a wide variety of homebuyers. We’re encouraging anyone interested in our Ceres Rise development to speak with our expert sales advisers to find out more.”
