Crest Nicholson is delighted to unveil Tadpole Garden Village; a long awaited collection of high specification 2, 3, 4 & 5 bedroom houses on the outskirts of the pretty Wiltshire Village of Blunsdon. Set within an abundance of quiet, tranquil and open countryside with spectacular panoramic views of where the Wiltshire Downs meets the Cotswolds

This exciting and innovative development will become a distinct community of nearly 1700 homes set within a 179 hectare rural location.

Charaterised by open, tree-lined avenues, large front and rear gardens and generous on-plot parking; Tadpole Garden Village will also boast a local centre for its community, retail and convenience facilities, Primary School, play areas including cricket pitch, pedestrian and cycle networks, mature and managed hedgerows, ponds and resident-only private allotments all in keeping with Crest Nicholson’s drive to provide a Garden Village inspired scheme with Community at its heart.

Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Enjoying natural unspoilt surroundings is one of the best aspects of living at Tadpole Garden Village, and a key part of the Garden Village ideal

The land formerly belonged to Tadpole Farm, and many of its original hedgerows and trees are woven into the new village landscape. These are valuable habitats for birds, bats and other small mammals.

The site already has large areas of established woodland, ponds and ditches, and much of the land will be allowed to go back to its natural state, allowing wild flowers and grasses to flourish. All of these features foster biodiversity as well as forming an attractive natural backdrop to village life.

In addition, Crest Nicholson is working with the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust to establish an entirely new Nature Park at Tadpole Garden Village. This area of approximately 48 hectares will create meadows where a wide range of animals and birds can live and breed, and which, of course, residents can also enjoy.

The Nature Park will be a link in the green corridor that runs along the river Ray to the north Wiltshire countryside, and means that Tadpole Garden Village is playing a real role in local conservation.

A village wouldn't be a village without shops, a school, a pub, and places for people to meet up in. Tadpole Garden Village will have all of these, and more.

You’ll also be able to stroll or cycle into the Village Centre for handy shops, healthcare facilities, the village pub and the proposed community centre. There’ll be games of cricket on the village pitch, the opportunity to try your hand at growing your own produce on the allotments, and for the youngsters, plenty of places for play and adventure. Job opportunities will be created at the shops, pub and healthcare amenity.

Tadpole Gate is approximately 5 miles from the centre of Swindon, which has grown from a small market town to one of the region’s most important centres for leisure and business.

A large number of national and international companies have offices here, providing a wealth of employment opportunities for the growing population. Intel, Honda, Nationwide Building Society, W H Smith and Nokia are just a handful of the businesses that have a presence in Swindon.

Swindon is a good town for play as well as work. The Old Town still prospers, and you’ll find intriguing independent shops, galleries pubs and restaurants in its quaint streets. Modern Swindon has even more choice, with a wide range of shops in the Brunel Centre and McArthur Glen Designer Outlet, and stylish bars and cafés everywhere. There’s a buzzing arts scene throughout the year at venues including the Wyvern Theatre, Arts Centre and Library. The local Leisure Centre is an excellent resource for keeping fit and having fun, and Swindon’s David Lloyd Centre is just three miles from Tadpole Garden Village.

There are also a host of parks and watersports activities on offer including The Cotswold Water Park.


Most importantly for parents, there’s a new primary school. Tadpole Farm Church of England Primary Academy accepted its first intake in September 2014 and has places for 420 children. For older pupils, Isambard Community School is within about 20 minutes’ walk.

The homes at Tadpole Gate have sustainable and energy efficient features built in. From high levels of wall and loft insulation to water efficient fittings on the taps, everything is new and suited to moving in and enjoying the lifestyle available at Tadpole Garden Village.

Heating and Hot Water

Each home is heated by a highly efficient gas fired condensing boiler with thermostatically controlled radiators, individually adjustable by valves so that you can keep the main rooms hot when you need them and tone down the heat in lesser used rooms to save on energy. There is also an immersion heater for emergency backup if you have guests to stay. The low maintenance aspect of a new boiler cannot be underestimated.


There are power sockets fitted at convenient points, as well as
TV/FM and Sky+ points to the living room and master bedroom (subject to subscription to Sky product). The BT points are fitted to the hall, living room and master bedroom and for peace of mind, there are mains operated, interconnected smoke/heat and CO detectors with battery back up.

The homes come complete with a multi-vent extractor system to extract moisture and condensation from bathrooms and en suite
and these rooms also benefit from a convenient shaver socket.

All internal lighting is energy efficient with low energy under cupboard lights to the kitchen, whilst the bathroom, en suite, cloakroom, kitchen and the loft have batten sets and all other rooms have pendant sets.

There is also a low energy external light with PIR detector to the front
door, whilst power and lighting are provided to the garage when
within the actual plot curtilage.

Internal Finishes

Internal doors have an oak veneer with chrome ironmongery, whilst the front door also has chrome accessories. There is also a contemporary sliding wardrobes to the master bedrooms.*

Ceilings are pure brilliant white and internal walls are to be painted in Dulux emulsion for a blank canvas from which to inspire. There will be a white gloss finish to internal door frames, skirtings and architraves, as well as white painted balustrades with an oak handrail and newel caps to the staircase.
