Holiday home review: Pathfinder homes in Devon and Devon

Two developments are taking place in the southwest, both featuring lodges by specialist manufacturer, Pathfinder, which is based in Devon. And both developments offer exceptional and both exclusive opportunities.

One is taking shape on the edge of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, and the other in Devon.

Higher Charaton Park

Higher Charaton is a very special place for a number of reasons, not just its stunning location in the gorgeous countryside of Cornwall, but because here, you not only buy the lodge but the land on which it sits, too. This will be the only park in the southwest offering lodges for sale on a freehold basis, so no ground rent to pay.

The lodges being built for Higher Charaton Park will be based on Pathfinder’s Retreat lodge, with upgrades – and buyers will have the opportunity to design their own homes! Another unique aspect of this park is that all of the lodges can be designed to be accessible to disabled people. There will be only nine lodges on this park, so that’s another aspect of exclusivity!

The lodges will be built to residential standard, ensuring you’re comfortable even in the colder months. The park has a 12-month holiday licence.

A hot tub and decking and a private landscaped courtyard are part of the unique Higher Charaton Park experience.

The park is being established on the edge of the Cornish village of Pensilva, five miles from Liskeard and with views that stretch far over Dartmoor.

Springfield Retreat

Eight miles west of Exeter in Devon lies a holiday lodge park where an exciting new development is taking place. The park is on the fringe of the Dartmoor National Park, close to the A30 that takes you into Cornwall, so it’s ideally placed for exploring both Devon and Cornwall.

The park will be home to luxury lodges, and sited on elevated pitches with stunning views – and buyers will have the opportunity to have hot tubs.

Eight lodges, designed specifically for the park, will form the first phase of the development, together with a new name for the park – Springfield

This park has until now been called Springfield Holiday Park. It not only gets a new name but the start of a transformation, to become a luxury leisure retreat. The first lodges will be sited in a gated-entry area, ensuring maximum privacy and exclusivity.

You can buy a lodge as your leisure retreat, or as a buy-to-let investment. Springfield Retreat will offer both part-exchange and finance options.

The lodges will be available in both single and twin versions.
