Baker Estates breaks ground on landmark housing development... the first for Dartmouth in 20 years


Award-winning South West housebuilder Baker Estates has broken ground on its 450-home flagship site in Dartmouth. The much-anticipated development is the first major new homes scheme for 20 years in the town.


Just a short distance from the centre, Little Cotton Farm, on Nelson Rd, will comprise of 2,3,4 and 5 bedroom homes including traditional houses and bungalows. The first phase will consist of just 24 homes and will be available from 2021. Baker Estates says the views will be spectacular from many of the homes offering both coastal and countryside vistas for miles.


Baker Estates is proud to add another development to its collection of homes in the South Hams, which have proven to be extremely popular with locals and buyers further afield. Baker Estates is currently selling the last remaining homes at The View in Malborough and has recently completed its award-winning development Great Court Farm in Totnes.


Offering a myriad of shops, cafes and restaurants, the historic coastal town of Dartmouth offers a lifestyle hard to beat in the region. As well as the river Dart and its picturesque harbour, locals enjoy costal walks and areas of outstanding natural beauty.


Little Cotton Farm is within walking distance to Sainsburys, the leisure centre and the park and ride appealing to first time buyers, second steppers, families and down sizers alike.


The development also offers over six acres of employment land, which will provide locals with job opportunities as well as contribute to the local economy.


Ian Baker, Managing Director of Baker Estates, said: “This is a landmark development for the beautiful town of Dartmouth and we are delighted to be launching it with councillors from South Hams District Council. Little Cotton Farm will offer a wide range of homes on the open market as well as a number of affordable homes for locals.”


Graham Hutton, Development Director of Baker Estates was joined on site by councillors Hilary Bastone, Jonathan Hawkins and Helen Reeve from South Hams District Council to officially launch construction.


Cllr Hillary Bastone, Deputy Leader of South Hams District Council, added: “It’s fantastic to finally see some development on this site. In 2006 we identified its potential to be an outstanding housing development, and thanks to Baker Estates it is now moving forward.”


House hunters are being urged to register their interest in the development ahead of its show home launch in Summer 2021.
