About Us


Bell Homes is the specialist Housing Development Division of K W Bell Group Ltd, a group of companies originally founded by the company chairman Keith Bell in 1965. Our head office is based in Cinderford which lies in the heart of The Royal Forest Of Dean.

Over the past 50 years we have gained an excellent reputation for placing a considerable emphasis on quality and individuality which has been accomplished by employing a core of skilled tradesmen. This has allowed us to build quality homes which withstand the test of time.

Each individual home aspires to respond sensitively to the surrounding environment and where possible we aim to incorporate state of the art quality building materials, allowing us to maximise our Eco-friendliness and minimise our carbon footprint. Both the internal and external finishes in all of our homes are designed to provide maximum comfort and quality. The external finishes are specified and incorporated to reflect the local architecture.

Here at Bell Homes we are committed to providing maximum levels of choice, which include a choice of kitchens, worktops, ceramic wall & floor tiles and carpets. All of which, enable each and every customer to design a home suited to their own individual tastes.

Our developments range from one off executive homes to larger developments of 40+ units. Our homes range from two bedroom homes for first time buyers to luxury five bedroom homes for those further on the property ladder. Each and every property is designed and specified to ensure they have their own personal touch. The locations of our developments range from Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, South Wales and The Forest Of Dean. In recent years we have constructed the majority of our developments in the Herefordshire & Gloucestershire regions with our upcoming developments including Lugwardine, Herefordshire & The Lea, Herefordshire.

Company History  


The group of companies was originally founded fifty years ago in 1965 by the current chairman Mr Keith William Bell. Over the past five decades he has been at the companies helm allowing the firm to grow from a small family run business to one of the largest businesses in The Forest Of Dean. The companies future remains bright and secure with two further generations of the Bell family also working within the business.

Keith started his journey as a coal-miner in The Forest Of Dean however a deep desire to break away from this allowed him to become a hod-carrier and a keen pupil eager to learn every aspect of the building trade. In 1967 Keith began working for the then Westbury Estates later to become Westbury Homes and successfully built the size of his company from one gang of bricklayers to two and so on. The firm has always been very much family orientated with Keith being joined early on by his brothers John and Colin and also his sister Jean.

The company grew steadily for nearly 20 years until 1986 where Keith founded the housing division of KW Bell & Son, Bell Homes. The first development saw Keith construct 25 homes in the small Gloucestershire village of Westbury-Upon-Severn. This first development proved to be the first of many with the company growing rapidly over the past 30 years and successfully constructing over 1,500 homes.
