Posted 13 January 2020 by Rebecca Burns

The WhatHouse? team looks at the latest range of new build properties for sale in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset...

With reports that the property market coped surprisingly well with the general election, and even appeared to avoid the traditional festive lull to some extent, many prospective buyers will now be keen to get on with their New Year house hunt.

The beautiful South West of England currently has a great variety of new developments available, including some offering starter home options and others with substantial houses for those who are aiming to move up the property ladder.

Here's our latest round up, taking in sites across Bristol, Somerset, Devon, Dorset, Cornwall and Gloucestershire.


Meadowbrook in Callington, Cornwall (Baker Estates)

MeadowbrookJust a short distance from the city of Plymouth, and surrounding towns like Liskeard and Saltash, Meadowbrook (or Gover an Pras in Cornish) offers a collection of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes.

There is a choice of houses and bungalows, all set in six acres of beautiful green space, providing a natural habitat for local wildlife and for residents to enjoy.

Callington is in east Cornwall, and has been postulated as one of the possible locations of the ancient site of Celliwig, associated with King Arthur. The location provides easy access to some beautiful parts of the region, including Dartmoor to the east and Bodmin Moor to the west. Kit Hill is a mile from the town, rising to 333 metres and offering views over Dartmoor, Bodmin Moor and the River Tamar.

When it comes to commuting, Callington lies at the intersection of the south-north A388 Saltash to Launceston road and the east-west A390 Tavistock to Liskeard road. The nearest mainline railway station is at Saltash, about seven miles away.
