Self-Build Event at The Trout Hotel, Cockermouth

Reiver Homes Derwent Forest site

Reiver Homes are inviting members of the public to find out more about their unique self-build development, Derwent Forest, on Friday 5th July at the award-winning Trout Hotel in Cockermouth.

Derwent Forest provides a unique opportunity for customers to build their own home 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 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.

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.

With 6 plots already reserved and interest at an all time high, the event will give potential customers the opportunity to find out more about this exciting self-build opportunity while enjoying refreshments with the Reiver Homes team.

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