Family homes in commuting distance from Birmingham

Close overlay

For families looking to settle down, living in the heart of a thriving city can sometimes mean sacrificing gardens and green space. That’s why many are choosing to live within commuting distance in surrounding towns and villages. That way they can enjoy the best of both worlds, putting down roots in leafy English countryside, all with the buzz of the city a short drive away. 

At Cameron Homes and Galliers Homes, our mission is to build beautiful homes in great locations. There are a number of plots still available in new developments in Burton upon Trent and Shropshire – just a short drive away from Birmingham city centre.

The second largest city in the UK, Birmingham is widely thought of as the biggest and best city outside London. With more canals than Venice, it’s a lively place, teaming with hidden cultural gems. So whether you’re planning on travelling in for work, or simply want to spend more time exploring with the family, Birmingham is a fantastic city to be near to.

However, our mission runs much deeper than that. We take pride in sourcing the best locations for our developments, shaping them into places that breathe new life into the communities they inhabit.
