Success stories

Weston Farm, Tempus Fugit

Published by Will Michelmore, 2021
It is unlikely Virgil ever visited the South West and if he did he certainly never wrote about it, but this Devon development is a reminder of how time flies.

We first considered the conversion of seven barns at Weston Farm, Higher Dawlish Water, in 2018. We liked the project and the professional team behind it, but back then it was a little too ambitious for us to fund. The Weston Farm team experienced a few false starts with other lenders and then Covid-19 hit. In July 2020 Bricks was asked to look at it again and with the growth of our loan book, we felt it would now fit our lending profile.

David Seaton, managing director of PCL Planning Ltd, consultants to the Weston Farm team, explains: ‘Bricks don’t have long and complicated forms and committees to put the finance in place and it’s a very easy process to get things arranged. Importantly, they understand the risks involved in the relationship and are supportive along every step of your journey.’

And that journey has resulted in the successful completion of the development – six luxury barn conversions and the re-modelling of the existing farmhouse, all sold.
