Wessex delights show-goers at The World Of Park & Leisure Homes Show

Friday 19th Jun 2015

Wessex Gite Award1111Wessex delighted show-goers last week at The World of Park & Leisure Homes Show, Stoneleigh with the much acclaimed Gîte luxury lodge winning runner up to Ultimate Lodge of the Year and the launch of the 2015 Doset park home making a strong entry into the park home market.

Since its launch earlier this year the Gîte has tuned heads and drawn attention for its French charm and style.  The distinctive exterior with its tall slender roof dormers, window shutters and large bespoke French casement style windows certainly makes a statement and visitors to the show loved the fact that the exterior styling was so different from more traditional lodges.

Inside, visitors were heard to comment on the French chic interior design and unique features; the lounge area with its feature wall and chimney breast with cast iron electric stove; the kitchen with its striking breakfast island with walnut top, under-mounted sink and wine cooler; the master bedroom with its indulgent furnishings and unusual and highly practical en-suite arrangements, and that’s not to mention the stunning bunk-room with its ceiling reaching high up into the roof dormer creating a unique and special space.

Kevin Jones, National sales Manager for Wessex commented: “The Gîte is a stunning lodge with personality both inside and out and the feedback we received was fantastic.  We were delighted to have won runner up to Ultimate Lodge of the Year, of course we would have loved to have won, but it’s a true achievement particularly when pitched up against lodges in which no expense is spared and that’s part of what’s so great about the Gîte, its affordable too!” 

The 45’ x 22’ Stoneleigh model has been sold to Shorefield Holidays and will be sited at Dane Park, priced from £225,000. For more information please call 0800 21 40 80.

Also at the show and making a strong first appearance in the park home marketplace was the all-new 2015 Dorset park home.

A home that is highly practical and extremely stylish with simple, understated design both inside and out, the Dorset is everything you would expect from a Wessex home.

Subtle and refined were the watchwords for the exterior. Visitors loved the design details that come together to give this home its quiet yet confident presence such as the feature front door within the central roof dormer, the box bay windows, the unusual extended overhang and the feature cladding.

Inside, the clever layout was the main talking point, and going forward, this is what is likely to make the Dorset a popular choice of park home. Designed for how we lead our lives today, the Dorset makes perfect use of space. An in-set tiled entrance opens up into the hall where to the right you go through to the living area, and to the left, the bedrooms and bathrooms can be found. A spacious ‘L’ shaped lounge / dining area leads though into the kitchen and then on to a practical boot room, perfect for outdoor living.  The generous master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite that together span the width of the home, and the second bedroom lies conveniently opposite the bathroom.  

Peter Berwick, Sales Director commented: “If you love Wessex style and luxury, but are looking for an affordable home then the Dorset ticks all the boxes, not only that, it’s incredibly practical! Guided by our customers and how they want to live, we’ve designed the Dorset to provide the perfect solution; practicality and style!  It’s early days for the Dorset but with orders already in the book and based on the feedback we received at the show, I’m confident that it will soon be found at parks up and down the country.”

The Dorset is now available to view at the Wessex Showground in Brandon, Suffolk.
