Last weekend, Crest Nicholson unveiled a new bus route, operated by Stagecoach, that will link Crest Nicholson’s award winning Tadpole Garden Village development with Swindon town centre two years earlier than planned. 

Andrew Dobson, Managing Director of Crest Nicholson’s Strategic Projects division, officially opened this new route along with members from Swindon Borough Council and local residents. The new route service 4 will run via St Andrew Ridge and Cricklade Road, every 30 mins between Monday and Saturday, and ensure that current and future residents of Tadpole Garden Village have easy access to local amenities. 

Inspired by the original Garden Village principles, Tadpole Garden Village, is a stunning development on the outskirts of Blunsdon, Swindon boasting a wide selection of homes to suit all preferences. Tadpole Gate and The Green offer traditional styled homes, whilst Evolve boasts a collection of contemporary homes unlike anything seen before in Swindon. 

The flourishing community at Tadpole Garden Village is brilliantly located and is home to the new Tadpole Farm CE Primary Academy. There are also further plans to build a community centre, play areas, local shops and pubs to complete this thriving village. For more information, please visit,
