Cardiff Blues players make themselves at home at Mary Twill Grove
Cardiff Blues players Sam Warburton, Leigh Halfpenny and Scott Andrews were given a taste of life at Redrow Homes’ exclusive million-pound development, Mary Twill Grove in Langland.
The Wales and British and Irish Lions captain and his team mates were invited to the development, to film an exclusive video as part of Redrow’s sponsorship of the Cardiff Blues kit this season.
The 3 international rugby stars took a tour of the 5-bedroom ‘Highgrove’ show home, taking in the stunning views over Langland Bay from the master bedroom balcony and discussing what they look for in their ideal home.
Sam Warburton was impressed with the spacious and airy kitchen-diner, saying the social atmosphere and ‘luxurious touches’ were something he would love in his own home. While Leigh Halfpenny admitted his own skills in the kitchen ‘aren’t too great’, he praised the picturesque location and spectacular views. Leigh said, ‘We are lucky to have such a beautiful area as Langland, and this is somewhere I really enjoy coming.’
Scott Andrews said the kitchen at Mary Twill Grove was ‘pretty special’, and that the large and comfortable lounge would be just right for relaxing after games.
The ‘Highgrove’ is the largest style of home at the development, where properties have an average price of £1.1million. Mary Twill Grove features just 11 properties, providing the seclusion and privacy that even international sports stars desire. The homes perfectly balance classic and contemporary design, with the premium quality finish Redrow are known for.

The new Cardiff Blues kit, including navy blue shorts sponsored by Redrow Homes, was seen for the first time in a flash mob outside John Lewis at the Hayes, Cardiff earlier this summer. Redrow are in their second successful year of sponsorship with the Cardiff Blues.
Debby Pavitt, Sales Director at Redrow Homes South Wales said, “Sam Warburton, Leigh Halfpenny and Scott Andrews were all extremely friendly and thoroughly enjoyed looking round Mary Twill Grove. Mary Twill Grove is a truly special development and we are very proud of the homes we have built here. It was great to hear their fantastic comments on the show home’s design and finishing touches, and to know we have created properties that these international sports starts would like to call home.
