Despite very tricky times in the past 12 months, we have continued to work hard to deliver the same attention to detail and personalised service our guests are used to. 

With life slowly returning to some normality, and with the very welcome return of guests on our estates, we’re bringing out regular updates from our estates, via our HFGTV. We’ve recorded new videos, giving snippets of content surrounding the family business, lifestyle, seasonal updates, ecology and of course award-winning, architectural property designs. 

In the first of our new videos, Ruby Haines, Director of Sustainability and one of our co-owners, explains here how nature and ecology are at the beating heart of everything we do across the company.⁠⁠

The surge in staycations during the pandemic has created increased demand in families wanting to invest in a holiday homes surrounded by nature. Here co-owner, Rory Paxton, talks about the huge interest we’ve seen in plots with planning permission for lakeside homes. He discusses how we’ve adapted our house designs to meet needs of families who want to spend more quality time together. 

Speaking from our Silverlake estate, Habitat Escapes manager, Henry Rouse, introduces the holiday rental arm of the company and talks about the rise in demand for UK staycations. He discusses the trends we’ve seen over the last year, and the new facilities that guests can enjoy on our estates here.
