Coverage for Lower Mill Estate in The Sunday Times

Immerse yourself
Second Chances - Escape to the country with a clear conscience

Last week Lower Mill Estate, Silverlake and Birchwood Lakes all featured in the Home section of The Sunday Times in an article outlining the benefits of buying a bolthole holiday home in the countryside at an estate that does not take homes away from the primary residential market.

“So what can you do if you’re an urbanite who can’t resist the allure of the British countryside? The answer could be to go part-time. There are a growing number of ways to invest in that bucolic dream that doesn’t require complete commitment, but still amounts to more than a Friday-to-Sunday Airbnb or a caravan park.

In North Devon, the Habitat First Group received planning permission in April to build 158
cabins and lodges, as well as a hotel, in a flooded former quarry near Barnstaple. The family-run firm, founded by the late Jeremy Paxton, already owns two sites: the newly opened 650-acre Silverlake, in Dorset, and the Lower Mill Estate, in Gloucestershire.”

Escape to the countryside and build your own innovative eco-home with a completely clear conscience.
