Our years of experience and superior knowledge for all aspects of our craft have earned us a reputation for the very highest standards of design and construction.

We have won numerous local and national awards for craftsmanship and quality which bear testament to our consistent delivery of the finest standards. Traditional skills ensure that quality is built in and is an integral part of our building process.

Today’s homes are designed to meet 21st century standards and reflect the need to conserve energy and to respect our carbon footprint. New homes by Rose are delivered with an attention to detail and care that will ensure you enjoy your new home for many years ahead.


We are delighted and very proud to have again, been awarded the prestigious, 5-star customer satisfaction award from the The Home Builders Federation #HBF

The 2023 Customer Satisfaction Survey results show that 90% of new build home buyers would ‘recommend their builder to a friend’, the third successive year that the industry has upheld a score of 90% or above.

Stewart Baseley, Executive Chairman of the The Home Builders Federation #HBF said: “To achieve a 5-star rating, whereby more than 90% of their customers would recommend them, is a considerable achievement for a builder and one that reflects the successful running of an organisation and hard work of its teams.”

Alex Leader – Sales & Marketing Director of Rose Builders Ltd comments “We are extremely proud to have won this award. We’re committed to providing our homeowners with the highest standard of service and quality of product and that they enjoy the unique experience of purchasing and living in a Rose home.”
