From our family to yours
Habitat First Group is a family-run business. Having launched Lower Mill Estate in The Cotswolds in 1999, the company went on to launch Silverlake, Dorset in 2011 and has a number of other exciting projects in the pipeline, including Birchwood Estate in North Devon.
The Estates combine ecology, architecture and community to help your family to thrive and enjoy a holiday surrounded by nature.
The Paxton family continue to run Habitat FirstGroup to this day and the family touch can be felt in everything that we do.
Our Other Estates
Lower Mill Estate has two sister estates: Silverlake, a lakeside country estate in the heart of Dorset and Birchwood, just outside Barnstaple, close to North Devon’s glorious beaches. All of the estates have been developed under the careful stewardship of our parent company, Habitat First Group.
Birchwood is currently in its infancy and more exciting news will be available about its development soon.
