About Us

Applethwaite is Eric Wright Group’s residential development company, providing a range of quality homes on select sites across Lancashire and Cumbria.


Our commitment is to provide our customers with a home that meets the demands of today’s lifestyle, harmonises with the local environment and is a sound investment for the future – somewhere that you will be proud to call home.

Our roots were formed in the Lake District where we operated as a niche residential developer creating high quality homes in premium locations.

In 2008 we became part of the Eric Wright Group, a leading player in the construction and property industry in North West England. Now, with the support of our parent company, we have expanded our activities into Lancashire and adjoining areas of the North West.

We are also broadening the range of housing we have to offer, with an emphasis on new-build family homes in small developments that have a more individual character than perhaps the large housing estates built by volume house builders. Our aim is to provide comfortable homes that reflect the quality and style of times past, but satisfy the needs of modem living,

We have built a range of beautiful properties across the North West.  Click here to see our past projects.
