Enjoy a summer at home, with a Cavanna new-build

Sales Manager, Darren Kellaway for the Western Morning News’ Dreaming of Summer Special 

It might not seem like it, but summer isn’t that far away. At least that’s what I keep telling myself as the rain keeps falling.

And while some of us might be looking forward to a holiday, the truth is most of us spend the majority of our summer at home.

We’re so lucky in the South West that the place we call home is also one of Britain’s most popular holiday destinations. People pay to come and stay here – we actually live here! And Cavanna Homes’ developments are all set in this beautiful region, never much more than a two-hour drive from our Torquay headquarters.

We currently have properties available on all our developments that will be ready to move into by the summer. And with locations that offer a huge range of benefits, from access to the great outdoors to brilliant facilities from schools to shopping, there has never been a better time to get ready to move in.

Research shows that having access to beautiful outdoor places, close to home, brings significant health benefits. Exercising in nature can improve mental health, reduce stress, increase the production of vitamin D, improve emotional well-being and even cut the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes.

At Cavanna Homes we are currently bringing forward properties in some of the most beautiful locations in the region.

At Bellevue, near Bude, our fabulous new two, three and four-bedroom homes are not much more than a pebble’s throw from Summerleaze Beach, one of the South West’s finest, while the spectacular Widemouth Bay is also close by.

Oak Mount, in Hemyock looks out across the designated National Landscape of the Blackdown Hills, with its miles of walking and beautiful wooded slopes.

Exeter’s two developments, Cavanna @ Elm Park and Equinox both have fabulous parkland right on the doorstep, yet are close to all this vibrant city has to offer.

But it’s not just beautiful places to take exercise and enjoy the views that we need for our health and wellbeing. A survey last month (February) by the Home Builders Federation revealed the stress of modern living is putting pressure on many families.

A whopping 86% said life had got more stressful in the last 20 years, with rising bills, the cost of energy and the struggle of simply getting on the property ladder all adding to people’s worries.

Buying a new-build home can help alleviate some of these stresses. There will, for instance, be no nasty surprises of the kind that can emerge when you take over an older property and running costs can be substantially lower in a new-build – around £2,200 a year less on average than in an older home.

So, whether you’re looking for a rural village like Hemyock to settle into, a house with the beach nearby or a property close to the city but with rural access close by, there is a new Cavanna Home for you. Summer isn’t too far away, so what are you waiting for?
