Wessex models a talking point at The World Of Park & Leisure Homes Show

Friday 15th Jun 2018

Wessex impressed visitors at the recent World of Park & Leisure Homes Show with three stunning models: the beautiful Dorset and stylish Canford park homes and an all-new, rustic-chic luxury lodge, the Spinney. 

As one of the biggest and best shows of its type, The World of Park & Leisure Homes Show brings together all the major manufacturers to showcase the very best in park homes and lodges.  Over 60 lodges and park homes were on display and with park operator’s on-hand to talk about the lifestyle, and related services such as insurance, and decking companies available to discuss any specific requirements, for those interested in the lifestyle, it certainly was the place to be!

Here’s a bit more about the luxury lodge and park homes that were on display:

The ALL-NEW Spinney Luxury Lodge
13.716m x 6.012m (45' x 20')

This all-new addition to Wessex’s premium luxury lodge range drew in the crowds and turned out to be a show highlight with its unique character and distinctive design features.

The exterior styling has a lovely welcoming feel created by a cottage-style front door, full-height windows and CanExel, Ced’R-Vue, 9” lap cladding in Sandalwood (other colours and claddings available).

Step inside and the feel is warm and homely. The main entrance opens up into the kitchen where there’s a convenient country-style hall bench and a mirror with coat hooks.  

The kitchen is a practical arrangement; semi open-plan with borrowed light from the main living space, a central wall provides space for a ‘hide & slide’ oven with separate hob. There’s a full compliment of integrated luxury branded appliances here and soft cream kitchen units, Louvre Jade tiling, a ceramic sink and a Roman blind in a pretty Mallard design fabric finish the look.

The lounge / dining area has a woodland feel created by feature, stacked log wallpaper to the far wall.  Here a false chimneybreast with a distressed oak mantelpiece and an electric stove set on a tiled hearth creates a lovely cosy feel, and a comfortable sofa along with two wingback armchairs (designed exclusively for Wessex), provide plenty of room for the whole family to sit back and relax.  

To the dining area there’s a rustic dining table and benches in solid acacia. Over-lit by a designer, industrial pendant light this space has a relaxed, casual feel; the perfect environment for drawn out meals with friends.

Through into the bedrooms and the warm and cosy feel continues.  The master bedroom makes a striking impression with a feature panelled wall with wall niches which include USB points and lights.  There’s a four-poster bed, designer lighting and a dressing chest, wardrobes and bedside cabinets provide storage in style! 

Two different options are available for the en-suite; as a first for Wessex, the show model included a wet-room area with a freestanding bath and shower, but there’s also a standard shower room model if that’s your preference.

The second bedroom with twin beds, oak furniture and Roman blinds in a pretty hare design also has wall niches; with inset lights and USB points these provide a practical space for bedtime essentials such as an alarm clock and a good book. 

The Spinney displayed has been sold to Warren Lodges, Nr Maldon, Essex. Available for sale, from £240,000. For more information please call 01245 223 258, email enquiries@warrenlodges.com or visit www.thewarrenestate.co.uk.

The Canford Luxury Park Home
15.240m x 6.012m (50' x 20') 

The Canford is an elegant home with an air of calm and sophistication which always proves popular for its individual styling, and considered design. Visitor feedback mirrored these qualities and the Canford once again turned out to be a firm favourite for a number of showgoers.

The stylish exterior benefits from a gabled Portico entrance supported by fluted columns. Splay bay windows to the lounge and master bedroom, along with half glazed double doors to the main entrance and feature Nordlux lighting complete the look.

The impressive entrance leads into a practical porch area with a walk-in coat cupboard, and then through into the lounge. With an electric stove set on a tiled hearth within a feature false chimney breast, set off by Willis & Gambier furniture and a Gower style checked lounge suite with matching curtains and tie backs, this room creates an atmosphere you can truly relax in. 

The open-plan dining and kitchen area provides a wonderful, sociable space for entertaining with its light olive and walnut, country-style kitchen and flat panelled ceilings. The stylish Willis & Gambier extending dining table is lit up by two elegant designer lights and perfectly positioned to take in the view outside. The kitchen includes everything you could need and even has a half and half sink – it’s the little details that make a big difference!

The bedrooms continue the unique Wessex style – freestanding bedsteads and bedroom furniture, soft elegant bed runners and coordinated curtains with tiebacks. The bathroom and en-suite are equally characterful with feature towel racks and elegant vanity units with semi-inset basins and large feature mirrors.

Donna Christie, Omar Area Sales Manager (North) commented:“The Canford is a beautiful home which you just can’t help but relax in. The practical porch with walk-in coat cupboard was a popular feature with visitors along with the kitchen/diner arrangement - a lovely sociable space for spending time with family and friends. Visitors also loved the interior design and commented in particular on the feature fireplace in the lounge and pretty floral and checked fabrics.”  

The Canford displayed has been sold to Countrywide Park Homes and will be sited at Redhill Residential Park, Norfolk. Available for sale – POA. For more information please call 0800 690 6060 or visit www.countrywideparkhomes.co.uk

The Dorset Luxury Park Home
13.691m x 6.012m (44'11” x 20') 

As the saying goes, home is where the heart is, and with its lovely warm and welcoming feel and beautiful colour scheme of creamy oatmeal highlighted by shades of mulberry and lavender, the Dorset certainly seemed to win a few hearts at Stoneleigh! 

The simple yet stylish exterior is highlighted with a feature front door, framed in CanExel cladding within a central roof dormer. Details such as the box bay windows to the front of the home and feature cladding to each gable end all come together to give a quiet yet confident presence.

The well thought out ‘L’ shaped lounge / dining area takes full advantage of the space available and a soft, soothing colour scheme of soft almond, oatmeal, champagne and soft greys, blended with bolder highlights of lavender, thistle and mulberry flows throughout. Carefully chosen furniture including a comfortable Isla-style sofa with coordinating armchairs, and a Willis & Gambier console table, mirror, coffee table and extending dining table, provide comfort and practicality in style, creating a real heart to the home; the perfect space to relax and recharge!

The kitchen, as you would expect from Wessex, provides luxury alongside practicality and is fitted with all the integrated appliances you could want. The kitchen units come in a warm champagne finish, accessorised with contemporary brushed steel handles, and a striking Claret Violet splash back and a Roman blind in a beautiful checked tartan fabric add highlights of colour. The kitchen then flows through to a practical boot room that provides additional storage and somewhere to remove muddy shoes and wipe dirty paws!

The hallway leads through to a generous master bedroom which spans the width of the home and encompasses a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite. Both the master and second bedroom are simply yet elegantly furnished with soft grey and pale oak furniture, finished off with curtains and coordinating scatter cushions in varying shades of pebble grey.

The Dorset displayed has been sold to Berkeley Parks and will be sited at New Park, Devon. Available for sale at £245,000. For more information please call 01935 862 079 or visit www.berkeleyparks.co.uk.

Peter Berwick, Omar Group Sales & Design Director commented: “It’s been a fantastic show for Wessex and feedback on the Spinney, Canford and Dorset has been exceptional. Wessex has a reputation for creating beautiful, unique homes and lodges and the models on display all demonstrated this along with other brand hallmarks such as quality and innovation. Watch this space as we’ll be launching another new lodge model later in the year!”

Next stop on the show calendar is The New Forest & Hampshire County Show (24thto 26th July) where Wessex will be displaying the pet friendly Allure luxury lodge. For more information please visit www.newforestshow.co.uk.
