Working closer to home, as opposed to enduring a long commute, is recognised as the greatest wellbeing benefit to workers. Recent research conducted by Vitality Health has revealed that those spending less than half an hour travelling to work gain an extra seven days of productive time every year. Ideal for hospital workers, looking to make the most of the health benefits that come with living close to work, Woodlands View by Millwood Designer Homes is situated on The Ridge in Hastings, just minutes from Conquest Hospital.

Available with Help to Buy, purchasers will be able to buy with as little as a 5% deposit, whilst the Government will provide an equity loan of up to 20% of the property’s value, which is interest free for the first five years.
Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “For prospective buyers, the daily commute is often an important factor when purchasing a new home. We have already welcomed a couple of hospital workers from the Conquest, as getting to work couldn’t be easier from Woodlands View, taking the stress out of the journey to and from work, especially during the typical unsociable hours that come with this line of work. Those looking for a beautiful new home and extra time to spend with family and friends, should come down to Woodlands View as soon as possible as we are currently offering a range of incentives on a selected properties.”
