Bewley HomesBewley Homes | Earl’s Grove, Surrey
Bewley Homes fifth collection of homes in Surrey has been named Earl’s Grove after the founder of Reigate Priory. The collection of new build homes, which is likely to be launched early next year, will comprise properties of between three- and four-bedrooms. It joins Bewley’s other Surrey sites, namely Acacia Gardens in Farnham, Ash Lodge Park in Ash, Jubilee Meadows in Hersham and Nursery Gardens in Tongham.

Bewley Homes’ Sales and Marketing Director Elaine Stratford said: “Reigate Priory is steeped in almost 800 years of history, and its hallowed walls and beautiful grounds are just a stroll away from our new development. Therefore, the name Earl’s Grove seemed particularly fitting, enabling us to recognise the impact William de Warenne made on the local area.” Find out more…
