Crest Nicholson’s Somerset development, Bishop’s Brook, is soon set to host families of a very different kind.

Since 2014, Crest Nicholson has restored the Keward Brook and surrounding wildlife corridor to provide a great environment for residents to enjoy and help local animals thrive. Dense shrubs, trees and vegetation have been planted along the corridor to encourage otters, kingfisher birds, bullfish and greater horseshoe bats to build their habitats on the development.

Set in the heart of rural Somerset in the historic city of Wells, Bishop’s Brook offers a collection of high-specification two, three, four and five bedroom homes.

Laura Osborne, sales executive at Crest Nicholson, says: “Bishop’s Brook is a truly exceptional development and we’re thrilled to be restoring the wildlife corridor, an idyllic peaceful area perfect for residents to enjoy. We’re delighted to welcome prospective homebuyers to take a glimpse into the lifestyle on offer, and possibly spot an otter or two.”
