Live the wild life

Welcome to Silverlake

Our modern country estate in Dorset provides safe, secure and breathtaking holiday homes, based around a calm freshwater lake with sweeping views. It’s serenely set in the heart of Thomas Hardy’s Wessex, whilst barely a stone’s throw from the stirring Jurassic Coast, so you can enjoy some downtime from the crazy pace of urban life.

Holiday Rentals

Habitat Escapes is the family-run holiday rental arm of the company. One of the added benefits of investing at Silverlake is that you have the opportunity to yield the maximum return on your investment by entering your property into a fully managed rental portfolio.

The Estate

We strive to have a positive impact in everything we do, respecting nature and the wider community, as well as enhancing the health and wellbeing of families who invest in and enjoy our unique natural retreats.


From buying a freehold plot to turning the key on your new holiday home, we ensure the process is as frictionless as possible. Choose from one of Habitat First Group’s award-winning designs, modify an existing one or instruct your own architect for something one-off.


Embrace the joys of the countryside surrounded by modern comforts and beautiful scenery.
