Why choose Sherford?

The vision for Sherford, ever since planning started over 20 years ago, was to create a sustainable town with a unique identity and atmosphere. Sherford draws from all that is good about traditional country living and architecture; combining quality homes and plentiful amenities, with abundant green space, within a walkable, safe and vibrant community. This vision remains at the heart of what Sherford is now and will continue to become. 

 

Hundreds of people have already made Sherford their home and in time, the town will be home to 12,000 people. The first primary school is now open and boasts high-quality facilities and state-of-the-art equipment. Sherford Vale is run by Westcountry Schools Trust, which has a proven track record for education excellence. Also open is the first part of the country park, which is free to use, explore and enjoy. On completion, the country park will span 500-acres and include abundant open green space, parks, play areas, woodland, allotments and wildlife habitats. You can take a look around Sherford here.
