• My partner and I were looking to purchase our first home together. We required a larger style home to accommodate our blended family. We wanted a location with a country feel but within easy traveling distance to our places of work in Newcastle. The Gentoo development in Wylam offered exactly what we were looking for and we are now the proud owners of a Douglas property at Hedley Meadows. We are particularly impressed with the generous sized rooms and the large open plan kitchen diner. The quality of finish along with fixtures and fittings is also of the highest quality.To top it all off we used Gentoo’s part exchange facility which meant we were able to complete the transaction and move in within 4 weeks of making an offer. To say that we are impressed with our purchase and the service we received is an understatement.

    Thanks for making it all possible Gentoo.

  • We purchased a Sycamore at Thurcroft, a home for our growing family. We had been in our other house for 17 years, with happy memories, so it was a big decision for us to move. The part exchange process was quite straight forward aided with the friendly and helpful staff at Gentoo.

    We love the house and area. Our home is spacious, light and we will enjoy living there and making new happy memories.

  • I was immediately impressed by the development at Cottier Grange, the tree lined drive and landscaped grounds certainly have the wow factor! The location is fantastic, the development has a rural feel with a multitude of woodland walks on the doorstep. Purchasing a Simonburn home with Gentoo was also a good experience. My advisor Michael was very professional and organised, keeping me regularly updated throughout. Michael made what can be a stressful time very straightforward. The Simonburn is a fantastic house with well proportioned rooms, the kitchen/diner is a particularly nice space. The garden is also a very good size and for me and further ads to the quiet rural feel.
    Very happy with my new home!

  • We had been looking to move house for some time, but the right house just never seemed to come along. Upon viewing the Spruce 4 bedroom detached house style at Thurcroft, we knew instantly that this was to be our forever home. The style and layout of the home was cosy but spacious, stylish yet practical and enough room for our growing family to have their own privacy. As a bonus we were able to part exchange the home we owned, enabling us to have a swift and timely move. Gentoo took care of all the arrangements for the sale and throughout the whole process we received amazing service. All members of the team were friendly but professional at all times and Julie and Harry from sales were outstanding and both went above and beyond to ensure we had a seamless move into our new home.

    We are now in a home that we love, in an area that is central and well located, looking forward to many happy years ahead!

  • The tree lined setting and the surroundings is what initially attracted us to Cottier Grange. We originated from Prudhoe and we were keen to return to the area. We were upsizing to a modern 3 bedroom home and we love the open plan living space and our large garden. When we visited the site we were warmly welcomed by Michael the sales advisor who helped us every step of the way from reservation to the day we moved in.

    We love our new home thank everyone at Gentoo Homes for making it possible!

  • We have moved into our dream home at ‘Bramblewood’. The ‘Lime’ is an excellent size and we love the spacious layout, especially the kitchen/diner where we spend most of our time. It’s in a great location for walks and is served by several local pubs. We are delighted to be in our new home and appreciate it every day.

    Customer service has been excellent from the outset so huge thanks to Charlotte for helping to make our move here happen!

  • Having viewed a number of new build properties in the area, Gentoo's Foxdale development was by far the best for location, layout and value for money. The house styles appealed to us due to the well designed and spacious rooms, large driveways with double garages and energy saving devices which completed the homes. The location is great to walk into town and is also based on a main bus route.

    We used the part-exchange scheme to purchase our new home and the team were very helpful, personable and professional in all aspects of the move and the customer aftercare has been great.
