To celebrate National Cupcake Week, Jelson is offering free cupcakes* to visitors at seven of its most popular developments. So whether you’re looking for your first property, moving on to accommodate a growing family, or downsizing when the kids have flown the nest, come and find the perfect home for you. The Leys, Anstey The recently-opened Uttoxeter show home at The Leys gives you a good idea of Jelson’s thoughtful design and quality of build.

Currently available here is a selection of two-, three- and four-bedroom properties from £194,950. Hallam Fields, Birstall A well-established development just off the A6 north of Leicester, Hallam Fields is fast becoming a sought-after community, with a great choice of two- and three-bedroom homes from £189,950.
