Wessex to display two time-served favourites at the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show
Monday 11th Feb 2019
Wessex is delighted to be exhibiting at the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show at the NEC, Birmingham, from 20th to 25th February where it will be displaying two stunning models - the magical Spinney luxury lodge and the stylish Dorset park home.
The Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show is the UK’s biggest showcase of motorhomes, campervans, caravans, caravan holiday homes and lodges and it’s all under one roof! A great day out for all the family, not only will you be able to see all the new season models, you can also stock up on holiday accessories as well as gather ideas, inspiration, and advice on where to go and what to do when you get there.
Here’s a bit more about the Spinney luxury lodge and Dorset park home to be on display:
Wessex Spinney Luxury Lodge
15.240m x 6.622m (50' x 22')
Think of a characterful, cosy and wonderfully homely lodge with unique design features and a contemporary twist and you won’t be far away from imagining the Spinney!
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 warm, welcoming feel continues. The main entrance opens up into the kitchen area where there’s a convenient country-style, white painted oak hall bench with baskets 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, open to either side, provides space for a ‘slide & hide’ oven with separate hob and chimney extractor. Integrated luxury branded appliances include a fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and wine cooler, 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 an earthy, woodland feel created by feature designer 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 fee. Designed exclusively for Wessex, a comfortable sofa in Glencoe Fraser Gold, along with two wingback-style armchairs in a pretty natural stone fabric with stag design, provide plenty of room for the whole family to sit back and relax and patio doors and two Willis & Gambier, Revival Collection, bookshelves complete the arrangement.
To the dining area there’s a rustic dining table and benches. Over-lit by a designer, black/gold 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 comfortable, 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 over-lit by designer mood lighting and a dressing chest, wardrobes and bedside cabinets provide plenty of storage.
When it comes to the en-suite, the Spinney offers something a bit different. Here there’s a wet-room area with a freestanding bath and a separate shower with overhead soaker; a contemporary styled vanity unit with countertop basin and a heated towel rail complete the look.
The second bedroom with twin beds also has wall niches; with inset lights these provide a practical space for bedtime essentials such as an alarm clock and a good book. The bedroom’s cottage feel is completed by Roman Blinds in a pretty hare design fabric and Kettle Interiors oak furniture.
The family shower room, conveniently situated close by, includes a heated towel rail, contemporary vanity unit with countertop basin and minimalist, Fusion thermostatic shower column. It’s comfort and style for everyone in this lodge!
The Spinney to be displayed has been pre-sold to Searles Country Park, Hunstanton, Norfolk. Available for sale at £189,995 (fully sited with a brick skirt and large decked area included). For more information please call 01485 536026 or visit www.searles.co.uk.
Wessex Dorset Park Home
12.802m x 6.012m (42’ x 20')
Highly practical and extremely stylish with simple, understated design both inside and out, the Dorset is everything you would expect from Wessex.
The simple yet stylish exterior is highlighted with a feature front door, framed in Sand 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 aubergine, thistle and mulberry flows throughout. Carefully chosen furniture including a comfortable Isla-style sofa with coordinating armchairs, and a 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 metallic 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 highly 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.
If you love Wessex style and luxury, but are looking for an affordable home, then the Dorset may be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
The Dorset to be displayed has been pre-sold to Wyldecrest Parks and will be sited at Saltmarshe Castle Park, Herefordshire. Available for sale – POA. For more information please call 0844 567 7300 or visit www.wyldecrestparks.co.uk.
