Living in the wonderful Westcountry

Cornwall is the most searched for location by home-seekers on Rightmove, with Devon sitting comfortably in 3rd place, and Dorset rising from 20th place to 10th following an increase in people looking to move closer to the coast and countryside.

And who can blame them? With sprawling coastlines, stunning beaches, picturesque villages, and beautiful countryside, there’s a lot to love about the South West, including our new homes in Exeter, Hemyock and beyond.

Homeworking, walkable towns and local shopping are trends that are here to stay, according to new research from Legal & General and Demos, with access to fresh air, good local shops, supportive communities and pleasant streets moving up the priority list for people.

We’ve been building beautiful new family homes across the Westcountry since 1923, so we understand the importance of creating a sense of community that has plenty to offer for all the family. Our developments across Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset are within walking distance of local shops and offer outdoor space for residents to enjoy, including play areas for children, outdoor seating or parks for running, walking or cycling.

Our Westcountry developments include Oak Mount in the village of Hemyock, set in the picturesque Blackdown Hills, yet with easy access to the M5, Exeter and Taunton. This idyllic location has lots to offer on its doorstep, with a ‘Good’ Ofsted-rated Primary School and an ‘Outstanding’ rated Secondary School, Hemyock Castle, the village centre with its shops and pub only a few minutes’ walk away, and open countryside ready to explore.

If you’re looking for a new home close to the city centre, visit us at  Cavanna @ Elm Park on the southern outskirts of Exeter between Alphington and Exminster, and explore our two show homes now open.

Cavanna @ Elm Park is a new community of energy-efficient homes with easy access to the city centre for commuters, or Dawlish, Torbay and beyond for family days out, and links keen cyclists to the city’s cycling network.

A sensory garden and separate seating pods with scented plants, sculptures, and fruit trees will also be added within the development to create a relaxing and tranquil experience for residents, as well as further significant public open space areas for the benefit of our homeowners.

On the eastern outskirts of the city is our Equinox community of new two to four-bedroom homes; Equinox I, Equinox II and Equinox III.

People looking to move to this fantastic location with easy access to the M5 and connections to the city’s cycling network, plus a 15-acre country park, and a play area for children, can book their appointment to visit our Equinox Marketing Suite.
