OF THE PROJECTS YOU HAVE
Linfoot Country Homes is a family-
owned and run house building
company specialising in high
quality housing developments in

established itself as a premier
developer, producing high quality
new and converted properties
including apartments, town houses
and country cottages. It also
constructs substantial four and five
bedroom family homes and Grade
ll listed conversions.
All development and conversion
projects are designed with
sensitivity to reflect the character
and nature of the adjoining area
and great consideration is given to
conservation areas and the setting
of listed buildings.
Linfoot Country Homes never uses
standard house types but employs
highly experienced and talented
architects to ensure that each
scheme has an individual identity,
with the use of appropriate material
for the locality.

projects are carried out in the
larger urban areas, the majority

HOW HAVE YOU FOUND
RECOMMEND IT TO OTHER
The effect of registration with CCS
has surpassed all expectations.
The company has always
considered itself to be a caring
company for its customers, staff,
community and the environment.
After registration it realised the
many other steps which can be
taken, most of which do not involve
much more effort or cost.
The company is firmly committed
to the Scheme and now holds
regular discussions on new
initiatives which can be put in
place. In fact some of the initiatives
already adopted are proving to be
extremely cost effective.
We would certainly recommend the
Scheme to all companies involved
in construction work whether large
or small. All can benefit.
Linfoot Country Homes Ltd has been a member of the Considerate Constructors Scheme
since 2010 and has won three National Company Awards.
