A community of sustainable holiday homes

Silverlake is an exciting new development of sustainable holiday homes located in the wildly beautiful environs of West Dorset. Set among historic heathlands, woodland and lakes, Silverlake provides the ultimate retreat for families craving a slice of the real British outdoors.

Brought to life by the Paxton family of Habitat First Group, their vision is to transform an unspoilt nature reserve into a residential community with a strong sense of security yet boundless opportunities to explore the natural world.


Silverlake brings people, ecology and award-winning architecture together in perfect harmony

Your home reflects your requirements, so when purchasing a freehold plot at Silverlake, you are involved from the very early stages of the bespoke design process right through to the end.

You can select one of Habitat First Groups property designs, modify an existing one or instruct your own architect to create a one-off design. Recommended builders are on hand every step of the way to help you select from a range of layouts, interiors and the best in sustainable materials and finishes, to ensure your home has your personal stamp on it.


There are endless activities and facilities on site to keep you and the family entertained

Silverlake is a secure, managed environment, rich in nature and wildlife. Scenic lakes provide plenty of opportunity for boating and fishing, while cyclists, runners and horseriders can take advantage of an extensive network of private footpaths, cycle routes and bridleways.

And for anyone wishing to switch off and enjoy some pampering, Silverlake’s relaxing spa lies in wait.


Opportunity to yield maximum return on investment

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 maximum return on investment by entering your property into a fully managed rental pool. This way, others can enjoy your home while you are not using it and you can benefit financially.

Silverlake is a fully managed estate with 24/7 security, allowing you to simply turn up and enjoy your time spent here without any of the hassle associated with grounds and property maintenance.
