Lakeshore Leisure Group secures planning permission to develop Clawford Lakes

A major redevelopment will include the build of 144 luxury lodges, 13 bespoke angling pods, seven unique luxury cocoons, nine floating lodges, and a Scandinavian-inspired spa with swimming pool and treatment rooms, set aside a stunning central lake.

Private equity-backed holiday operator Lakeshore Leisure Group has secured a major planning permission to develop Clawford Lakes, a stunning 80-acre property in Devon.   

Acquired in 2019 with initial investment from Kings Park Capital, Clawford Lakes in Holsworthy, north west Devon is an 80-acre holiday resort comprising of 17 man-made fishing and recreation lakes and 24 self-catering units, as well as a large bar and restaurant. The site was purchased by Lakeshore Leisure Group with a view to scale and expand a picturesque site, that already has core central facilities in place, into a resort and spa destination.   

With planning permission now approved, work will commence in the coming weeks on a major redevelopment which will include the build of 144 luxury lodges, 13 bespoke angling pods, seven unique luxury cocoons, nine floating lodges, and a Scandinavian-inspired spa with swimming pool and treatment rooms, set aside a stunning central lake. Lakeshore Leisure Group has also secured exclusive rights to the luxury cocoon units in the UK.  

The new luxury holiday lodges will be available for both holiday rentals and for purchase as pre-furnished holiday homes, available to use year-round and with the option of subletting on a managed site.  

Stephen Twiss, CEO at Lakeshore Leisure Group commented: “Set in an incredible rural valley not far from the north Cornwall coastal towns of Bude and Padstow, Clawford Lakes Resort and Spa has an amazing 30 acres of lakes and is quite simply the perfect canvas to design a very special self-catering resort experience for today’s market, but with a restaurant on site, too. 
The goal of the Clawford Lakes Resort and Spa development is to create a seamless and sustainable integration of holiday accommodation within an ecologically enhanced landscape, creating a new high-quality benchmark for tourism for the local area.

It’s just over two years ago that I first viewed the site on a very wet March day and saw the potential that Clawford Lakes had to offer. So, a huge thank you must go to Kings Park Capital and all the brilliant local people that helped secure this planning permission and put us in a position to start the build and redevelopment of a location that allows us to further support an amazing local community.”

The refurbished Apple and Grape bar and restaurant will showcase dishes created using a variety of local produce, and will also welcome local visitors. There will be a small provisions and fishing tackle shop on site, to support the high-quality fishing lakes, which have been invested in and restocked. In addition, leisure water sports will be added in 2022 including paddle boarding, kayaking, open water swimming and canoeing, and the new swimming pool and spa will open, all forming part of the visitor experience.
