A community of sustainable holiday homes

Lower Mill Estate, an award-winning community of sustainable holiday homes, was born out of a passion to put nature first.

Established 18 years ago by the Paxton family, their vision was to create a residential nature reserve that combined a sense of security with the freedom to escape the demands of urban life.

The result is a place where like-minded people build their own beautiful homes and immerse themselves in the natural environment.
