The Lambton family are one of the oldest in the region and the history, landscape, buildings and archaeology of the Park, capture the story of the region.

“When I viewed the homes at Lambton Park, I saw a Victorian design with a modern style.”
“I loved the high ceilings, good room proportions and quirky layouts in the show home.”
The standard of our home is unbelievable. Outside has a Victorian look, and inside has a modern flow and feeling. It meets our needs as a family with five bedrooms providing good room for our children, and we have the benefit of an office. Downstairs, the hallway with the wide central door is impressive, and we love the bay window. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
“I enjoy space and countryside, so we looked at a variety of locations for a house with some land.”
The appeal of Lambton Park is the woodland around it. I can spend time walking in the forest or the country park without having to drive. Elba Park is on the doorstep, so I get a rural aspect without the downsides of upkeep and expense.
"I’d definitely recommend Miller Homes…"
…because the customer service from the commercial team was wonderful and attentive and there was a good level of visibility. The style of the house, high specification, and high level of quality in the build are good.
