Awards & reviews

We pride ourselves on creating places where people love to live, with sustainable communities built to last. But you don't just have to take our word for it, we've won plenty of awards over the years to prove it.

We are proud to have received a five-star rating again from the Home Builders Federation (HBF), following the industry’s customer satisfaction survey results.

The survey takes into consideration everything from the level of customer service and quality of the home to the handover process. At Countryside, we instil an exceptional focus on quality – whether it be in our homes or when speaking to customers - and are delighted to hear that 91% of our customers would recommend us to a friend.

Creating Places People Love

While being an award-wining home builder means a lot to us, it's what our customers think of us that matters most of all. We've been selling homes for more than 60 years, so we know how important it is to make sure our customers are satisfied with every step of their homebuying journey.

Royal Hill Park Case Study

Andrew and Mark

Having lived in the burgeoning neighbourhood of Crystal Palace for best part of a decade, Andrew Slatter, 48, and his partner Mark Parsons 49, decided it was time to upgrade their home and find something on a grander scale at Royal Hill Park.

“We really believe in the scheme and the fact Countryside are working together with the RNIB really helped us to feel secure about our decision. There are some great plans in place, such as the Sensory Trail, that are being set up to aid the sight impaired. We’ve got a great community feeling and that will only increase.” - Andrew Slatter

Sylvia Williams

Sylvia Williams and her husband Paul have lived at Greenwich Millennium Village since 2004, having moved from Sylvia’s family home in Willesden Green. The couple were attracted by its child-friendly environment and the buildings being set against a backdrop of lush green spaces.

"Our four-year-old daughter has been growing up in a beautiful home within a children’s paradise. There are some fantastic facilities for children here. My daughter absolutely loves to spend time in the parks and on the cycle paths."Sylvia Williams
