New homes in Worcestershire: 5 best developments

If you’re looking for the best new homes in Worcestershire, why not ask the people who live there already? That’s exactly what we did, assembling our current top-ranked property developments in the county based on their reviews. Take a look at what this generously green and intriguing part of England has to offer.

Where is Worcestershire?

Worcestershire is part of the West Midlands region of England. It shares a western border with Herefordshire, which includes a good slice of the Malvern Hills. On its southern border – shared with Gloucestershire, it also includes the top part of the evergreen Cotswolds.

Why live in Worcestershire?

Worcestershire is one of those rare counties that can supply a great blend of tranquillity and convenience. While sleepy villages and charming market towns are the order of the day, Worcestershire also has excellent transport links. The M5 runs the length of the county, putting Birmingham, Cheltenham, Gloucester and Bristol all within easy striking distance. Thanks to Worcester’s rail links, London is less than 2 hours away.

For day-to-day living in Worcestershire, expect a relaxed, peaceful lifestyle in one of its many desirable towns and villages. The likes of Tenbury Wells, Malvern, Broadway and Bewdley routinely top the list of the best places to live in the county, thanks to their welcoming communities, easy access to stunning greenery and period charm.

This theme continues in Worcester itself, the geographical and urban heart of the county. As a cathedral city, it’s packed with a weighty and fascinating history. The Museum of Royal Worcester, along with the cathedral, is the best place to explore the city’s past. The whole city centre is a joy to walk around, as are the city’s riverside areas, which offer up many of its best views. Worcester is also a lively place, packed with characterful pubs, independent shops and a varied dining and nightlife scene.

Overall, the county is extremely well off for ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ Ofsted-rated schools. At the time of writing, Worcestershire has no fewer than 42 outstanding-rated schools. Most of them are clustered in and around Worcester city itself. So, if you’re looking for a top-notch education for your children, this is a serious contender.

What are average property prices in Worcestershire like?

Despite being heavy on pros and light on cons, Worcestershire is not an overly expensive place to buy property. In December 2021, Zoopla recorded the average house price in Worcestershire at just over £302,000. This is only £14,000 over the national average for England, recorded in September 2021 by the ONS.

If you’re looking for grand period homes, then central Worcester is the place for you. Here you’ll find Georgian townhouses featuring heavily, with some truly spectacular prospects along the River Severn. Smart new-build apartments are also coming online here too, and flats in Worcestershire sold for an average of around £173,500 over the past 12 months.
