Reiver Homes have launched an exciting self-build development in west Cumbria which offers spectacular views of the Lakeland fells.

Derwent Forest provides a unique opportunity for customers to build their own home in a beautiful area with breathtaking views across the Lake District.

The development is nestled in the green hills of Broughton Moor, two miles north of Broughton village and five miles north of the ancient market town of Cockermouth.

This phase has planning permission for 24 self-build plots ranging in sizes up to approximately 1,100m2.

Each self-build plot will be delivered fully serviced including drainage and connections for gas, water and electric.

Planning consent has been granted for five house types, so building couldn’t be simpler.

To ensure an exceptional looking community, a design code provides details on the style and other parameters that the building work must adhere to.

Proposals for these four-bedroom detached houses show a range of stunning features including impressive gallery staircases, glass balconies, open-plan living spaces and large sliding and bi-folding doors.

These are the kind of features in great demand with today’s families, attracted by the relaxed ambience they create.

Cockermouth is one of only 51 towns in Britain designated as a ‘Gem’ town and as such is recommended for preservation as part of our national heritage.

It boasts period architecture, a popular festival and amenities including a good range of independent shops and schools, among them a secondary school.
