Barratt Homes started building quality new homes in 1958 and since then they have grown to become one of the nation's largest housebuilders. Barratt aims to provide the highest standard of design, construction and customer service in the business, resulting in a host of major industry award wins in recent years.

 

Our vision is to be recognised as the nation's leading housebuilder, creating communities where people aspire to live. We work closely with and listen to the views and interests of local people to make positive contributions to the communities in which we are building. 

 

Barratt is the only major housebuilder to have won the exclusive '5 Star Housebuilder Award' awarded by the Homebuilders Federation for seven consecutive years.

In addition Barratt has also won 'Best Large Development' at the Evening Standards New Homes Award 2014 and 'Best Design (three storey or fewer)' at the Home Builder Awards 2014 for the Trumpington Meadows development, also located in Cambridge.
