At Hartford, we only create homes we would like to live in ourselves. That means well designed, modern versatile interiors, elegantly classical kitchens and bathrooms to savour and space to enjoy life. We also take pride in ensuring the buying process is painless and our customers have the smoothest move possible. Here is just some of the feedback we've had from our customers on their Hartford experiences.

“My son and I fell in love with St Ninian's Court when we came to view it – the sun was coming through the window and it’s just so lovely in the morning. It’s very quiet and peaceful which I like. With an arts and crafts church and lovely park on the other side, it was just perfect for me - it really was ‘Location, Location, Location'! It’s near to the shops and just down the road we’ve got the theatre, the concert hall and what I think is the nicest part of the promenade: it’s just very special.

“When my husband died I was left alone in a large four-bedroom house. It was very difficult at night being in the building alone. I’d looked for a bungalow in the locality and hadn’t found anything that was right for me.

“I’ve always felt very secure from the very moment I first moved in to the flats at St Ninian’s and very comfortable and at home. It does get quite difficult to maintain a big house and garden but I’ve just got the rooms I really need here: I don’t need a second bedroom so I’m able to have a separate dining and work room, as well as a sitting room.

“I wanted to keep as much as I could because it was things I’d acquired over the years including my pictures which were part of keeping things familiar for me in a new place; arranging what I’ve got as best I could was important to me.”

"We decided to buy a Hartford home at Cronk Cullyn because of their reputation for quality. We are delighted with the finished house due to the high standards of fittings and insulation. The development will suit all generations which is important to us as we have just become grandparents. Hartford’s part exchange scheme made the move as easy as possible."

We are delighted with our new Hartford home at Cronk Cullyn, the end result has completely exceeded our expectation. We knew from the outset that we would like to make some changes to the floorplan to suit our personal preferences and Norman, James and the team couldn’t have been more helpful in accommodating our requests and they were able to guide us towards making the right decisions based on their experience. The communication with us throughout the build made us feel completely engaged in the process and we felt that our opinions and preferences really did matter. As the first residents to move into the development we were naturally concerned about continuing building works around us but the team on the ground go to great lengths to ensure that any disruption is kept to a minimum and the site is kept clean and secure. Our previous home was built by another well known local developer and the experience with Hartford is incomparable, which I put down to the willingness to communicate openly with us and allow us to make personalised choices at various stages in respect of the overall finish.
