Hayfield has released phase two at Hayfield Meadow and will host an official launch weekend on the 26th-27th January. Hayfield Meadow has proven popular since its first launch, and the housebuilder reports that four reservations have already been made in this new phase.

Phase two will offer an additional forty-five two-, three- & four-bedroom homes and a range of brand new house types, including The Malvern, a three- bedroom semi-detached property, and The Cotheridge, a two-bedroom bungalow.
