Unique Self-Build Site to Launch with Event at the Trout Hotel

Reiver Homes will celebrate the launch of their unique new self-build development with an event at the award-winning Trout Hotel in Cockermouth on Friday 5th October.

Derwent Forest provides a unique opportunity for customers to build their own homes in a beautiful area with breath-taking 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 1100m2. 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 your build 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.

These 4 bedroom detached houses boast a range of stunning features including impressive gallery staircases, glass balconies, open plan living spaces and large sliding and bi-folding doors.

The launch event will give potential customers the opportunity to speak to architects, mortgage experts and suppliers and enjoy refreshments while learning more about this exciting self-build opportunity.

The event will take place on Friday 5th October from 4.00pm – 7.00pm at the Trout Hotel, 3 Crown St, Cockermouth, CA13 0EJ. To register your interest visit
