“Our family, who also moved to the UK from Hong Kong, highly recommended Countryside to us.”
Hear from Joey, Wai and Amanda about their experiences with Countryside
14 Mar 2024

Joey’s brother, Wai and his partner Amanda made the move from Hong Kong to Oldham in 2022 to start a new life together in the UK - following a recommendation from a friend who had previously relocated with Countryside. It wasn’t long before one recommendation led to another and Joey joined them in 2023.

Like many other Hong Kong nationals looking to escape political unrest, Wai and Amanda moved here via the British National (Overseas) Scheme, set up to allow Hongkongers to live, work and study in the UK. 

When we spoke to Wai last year, he told us “I would really recommend Countryside to anyone thinking of making the move from Hong Kong; in fact, my sister will be moving to Countryside’s Radclyffe Green development this year.”

Keen to hear how their family were also settling in, we recently caught up with Joey. 


“Our home is super light and airy which makes the ever-changing Manchester weather easier to adapt to and my favourite thing is the open-plan layout. 

“There’s plenty of room for the whole family so we can enjoy spending time together in our new home.”


“Our family, who also moved to the UK from Hong Kong, highly recommended Countryside to us.

“We absolutely love our new home and all the surrounding areas have to offer, from shops and transport to beautiful country walks.”


“Our experience with Countryside has been great. The sales team were really attentive and supported us throughout the entire process from our first enquiry to moving in.”

“Being able to make choices for our home, including our kitchen and bathrooms, has also allowed us to create a home that truly reflects us as a family.

“The personal touch made our house feel like home from the very beginning, helping us to settle into life in a brand new country.”


It’s always a pleasure hearing how our buyers are getting on it their new homes and we appreciate just how big a move it is from Hong Kong. 

It’s been heartwarming to see that Wai, Amanda and Joey are settling in well and it means a lot that they think enough of their experience with us to tell their loved ones to put their trust in us too.
