Vikki & Mitch’s Story
Settled at New Cardington Fields
Mitch, a 30-year-old firefighter from Milton Keynes, and his partner Vikki, 31, working in the motor trade, were previously caught in the cycle of renting privately. Their desire to break free from the rental market and secure a place they could truly call their own led them on an inspiring journey into shared ownership.
When asked about their motivation to purchase a home, Mitch shared, “We decided we wanted to buy a home together about 12 months ago. Renting was becoming increasingly unsustainable, and we were eager to invest in our future.”
With a clear goal in mind, the couple explored various options and schemes. Given the current increases to the widely reported cost of living, Shared Ownership emerged as the most viable choice. Reflecting on their decision, Vikki explained, “Shared Ownership was the best option for us. We did consider other schemes and developments, but the Cypress house type at New Cardington Fields stood out, and we instantly fell in love with it.”
New Cardington Fields is set on the edge of the village of Cardington, just 3.5 miles from the vibrant town centre of Bedford and close to the famous Cardington Hangars.
Discovering the New Cardington Fields development proved to be a turning point for Mitch and Vikki. They diligently scoured various property portals, where they discovered the homes offered by Homemade Homes by Accent at New Cardington Fields. Intrigued by the concept of Shared Ownership, the couple was already well-informed about its benefits when they reached out.
“When we contacted the team at Homemade Homes by Accent, we were already relatively clued up regarding Shared Ownership. However, Homemade Homes by Accent provided us with valuable insights and guidance throughout the process,” said Mitch, expressing his appreciation for the support they received.
Now settled in their beautiful Shared Ownership home, Mitch and Vikki are eager to share their experience with others contemplating shared ownership: “save what you need to get on the ladder as soon as possible. The private rental market is daylight robbery just now!”

Our New Cardington Fields development
New Cardington Fields in Bedford offers a collection of 2 & 3 bedroom homes for Shared Ownership sale. Located just 4 miles from Bedford, with excellent transport links by road and rail, this is a unique opportunity to settle in an area you'll love.
Everyone should be able to find a home they love, and Shared Ownership could be your answer. Shared Ownership is another way to get started on the property ladder. You buy a percentage of a property and pay rent on the rest. We own part of it – but you’re living there; you can decorate it and decide when to sell. Buying a share may mean you need a lower mortgage and deposit than purchasing a property outright.
