Our holiday homes are designed with energy efficiency in mind, ensuring the architecture works in harmony with nature, using locally sourced, natural materials. This helps to insulate our holiday homes to reduce the properties’ running costs. We are also proud to have been awarded Building with Nature status - the UK's first green infrastructure benchmark - due to our sensitive approach to biophilic living, ecology and sustainable development.
As Silverlake is purpose-built, the Estate complements the surrounding community, enhancing the value of the surrounding area.
Silverlake and its sister site, Lower Mill Estate, have both rejuvenated derelict quarries transforming them into flourishing nature reserves that conserve and create new habitats for a wide range of protected species. Our eco-friendly houses also include features to encourage and support wildlife, ranging from bee bricks and living roofs to bird and bat houses.
