The Old Beehive turns dreams into reality

Mr and Mrs Horbury have been searching for their new build perfect home for 3 years. Having lived in Bridlington all their lives, they had found it challenging to find the perfect new home away from their home town. Buying a new build has been a dream of Mr and Mrs Horbury for many years now, and they were happy to make their dream a reality.

“If we were able to sell our previous house sooner, we would have moved into Oakdale a long while ago” commented Mr Horbury. “Of all the new build homes we have seen, Oakdale was by far the best quality for price”. Mr and Mrs Horbury were looking to downsize their home to one which better suited their life style. Mr Horbury had spent a lot of his precious leisure time to maintain their previous home. “Our new home is so maintainable and more economical to run. There’s almost no work required to maintain so it’s a load off our minds”.

The Old Beehive Retford is where Mr and Mrs Horbury chose. “I love everything about being here”, explained Mrs Horbury. “The location is just fantastic, everything we need is right here.
