Wessex makes an exciting start to the year as it launches the iconic 2015 Gîte luxury lodge at the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show at the NEC, Birmingham, from 17th to 22nd February (Hall 4, Stand 4160).  This eagerly awaited and much imitated luxury lodge is a classic piece of French style and with its beautiful new interior design, it’s sure to be the talk of the show!

The Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show is the UK’s biggest start-of-season showcase for park homes, holiday homes, caravans, motorhomes, tents and accessories. The show includes free have-a-go activities for the family, a dog agility show, an Experts Theatre, discovery zones and much more. All the major UK manufacturers will be showcasing their latest models and you can even research and book your holidays… and it’s all under one roof!

The Gîte Luxury Lodge (45’ x 22’)

True to it’s name, the Gîte by Wessex (gîte - a French holiday home, typically a converted old farmworkers' cottage, outbuilding or barn), radiates French rustic style and charm but with a contemporary twist. 

The distinctive exterior remains true to its original, iconic form and has the feel of a Brittany longhouse with its tall slender roof dormers, window shutters and large bespoke French casement style windows.  Clad in Mist Grey Canexel with contrasting white window surrounds, this luxury lodge exudes the simplistic style and character that is so typically seen in French design.

The spacious open-plan living area, in a subtle colour palette of cool greys and fresh white, includes lounge, dining and kitchen areas.  Light panelled walls and vaulted ceilings (which continue throughout the lodge) accentuate the feeling of space and light and with its atmospheric lighting, the perfect environment is created for enjoying the company of friends and family.

A large contemporary corner sofa set in front of a simple wood burner style electric stove dominates the lounge area.  Complimented by distressed white furniture including a console table, coffee table and dining table with six chairs (ideal for French style dining!), the lodge has a chic look and feel. 

The kitchen area has clean, contemporary lines and features a central breakfast island / work area with a stainless steel under-mounted sink and wine cooler. With Bosch appliances, an Axiom work surface and Porcelanosa wall tiles, the kitchen is finished off beautifully and is both practical and stylish.

A key feature of the Gîte, and one that is sure to turn heads is the spacious master bedroom and en-suite that spans the width of the lodge.  The light panelled walls and vaulted ceiling along with the simple, chic French style creates a serene and tranquil feel.  Furnished with a beautiful freestanding French style bed, bedside cabinets, ottoman, dressing table and built in wardrobes the master bedroom leads through to a stylish en-suite with unusual layout. The en-suite benefits from an indulgent fully tiled walk in shower with duckboard, a separate WC and an area set on the back of a feature wall open through from the bedroom that houses an elegant sink mounted into a stylish wash stand.

Another distinctive feature of the Gîte is the second bedroom - a stylish bunk-room that sleeps up to four. The ceiling reaches high up into the roof dormer creating a unique and special space and with its build in wardrobes and beautiful window seat this room is highly functional as well as stylish.

A fully tiled shower room with walk-in shower and duckboard finishes off the interior layout, mirroring the design features of the en-suite.

The model to be displayed at the NEC show is available for sale.
