Our Locations

Chippenham, Wiltshire

The idyllic market town of Chippenham, a short distance from Bath and just over an hour’s journey from London, boasts a reputation as one of Wiltshire’s most vibrant and lively areas. It offers a wide selection of shops and cafés, unique features such as Bowood House, and even the opportunity to stroll along the banks of the River Avon right in the town centre. Rich with history and packed with points of interest, it’s no surprise it was ranked 6th on National Express’s list of most popular UK destinations. So with its blend of architectural gems, modern shopping facilities, beautifully maintained parks and Purple Flag Status nightlife, there’s something for everyone - making it an ideal location to live and work.

Oakdale, South Wales

Oakdale’s location means you get a choice of where to live because it’s placed between Cardiff and Newport. Cardiff suits city lovers, because there is always something going on with countless shops, restaurants and bars. If you are a nature lover, it is literally on your doorstep. The Brecon Beacons are close by for walking and outdoor sports, while Swansea is just along the coast for seaside and surfing fans. If culture’s your interest, there are more than 400 castles and ancient monuments to explore in Wales.

Merthyr Tydfil, Wales

As one of the towns forming the Heads of the Valleys, Merthyr Tydfil is rich in culture, landscape and scenery. Located between Brecon Beacons National Park and the Welsh capital of Cardiff, you’re spoilt for choice with the range of attractions and activities on offer. The town’s public resources, friendly residents, family alliances, rich history, and open landscape means it’s a highly sought-after location for all ages.

Hastings, Sussex

There’s more to Hastings than a certain battle fought in 1066. This cosmopolitan seaside town is really three towns in one - to the east, the Old Town boasts a charming mix of half-timbered houses and narrow streets vividly recalling old seafaring days, the bustling contemporary shopping Town Centre sits in the middle, and to the west, St Leonards features grand terraces and squares reminiscent of stately London. The area has recently undergone a period of costly renovation, with new highlights including a £14m pier and the Jerwood modern art gallery set against the magnificent backdrop of Hastings Castle. So for a stimulating yet relaxing lifestyle, look no further than Hastings to live and work.
