Wessex to launch all-new luxury lodge at Beaulieu!

Friday 4th Sep 2015

Wessex BeaulieuWessex is once again looking forward to exhibiting at Holiday Caravan 2015 on the beautiful Beaulieu Estate in the New Forest from 25th to 27th September. It’s set to be an exciting show for Wessex who will be launching an all-new luxury lodge model, the Summerhouse, along three other luxury lodge models; the French inspired Gîte, the striking Contemporary and super stylish Classic and also the recently launched Dorset park home.

Beaulieu is the second of two shows run annually in September by The Hull and East Riding Caravan Manufacturers' Association. Providing visitors with the first opportunity in the south of England to see the new season’s lodges, park homes and caravan holiday homes, Beaulieu is the main holiday home show of the year and is not to be missed!  Held over three days, there is plenty of time to take in all the new and exciting models from the country’s top manufacturers and also to see Beaulieu’s other attractions, which include the National Motor Museum, Palace House and Beaulieu Abbey.

Here’s a taster of what will be on show:

The Summerhouse Luxury Lodge (40’ x 22’)


Fresh and beachy with a free and easy spirit, the Summerhouse is perfect for enjoying carefree days with friends and family.  The cool looking exterior clad in Coastline CanExel (also available in a range of other colours and claddings), gives the feel of a fresh sandy day on the beach with a touch of cool ocean mist in the air; and tall, slender windows along with French doors to the lounge and master bedroom invite the outside in.

White panelled, semi-vaulted ceilings and partially panelled walls continue the fresh, beachy feel inside and feature beams to the living space add character and depth.  With a colour palette of cool whites and nautical blues, and simple, contemporary styled, reclaimed pine furnishings, and crisp linen fabrics, this lodge has a wonderful style that you can’t help but relax in.

It’s not just the style, quality and feel of this lodge that make it special though, as you would expect from Wessex, original and unique features are in store.  An intelligent floor plan maximizes the use of space, particularly in the living area where the kitchen, with fully integrated Bosch appliances, cleverly wraps around the far side of the lodge.  Through into the master bedroom, a stylish Hampstead double bed sits central to the room in front of a feature, full-height wall with beautiful glazing.  Behind this wall, an indulgent Eastbrook Mistral 1800 bath is situated, and then to the left a separate WC and en-suite shower room – pure luxury!

If you’re looking for a luxury lodge that will see guests coming back time and time again, the Summerhouse may just be the lodge you’ve been looking for.

The Summerhouse will be returning to the Wessex Showground in Brandon, Suffolk where it will be available to view.

Beaulieu model (40’ x 22’) RRP: £130,000 plus vat (£132,597.79 inc. vat) 

The Gîte Luxury Lodge (48’ x 22’)

True to its name, the Gîte radiates French 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. Available in a range of claddings (such as the pretty Sand Canexel to be displayed), the Gîte exudes the simplistic style and character so typically seen in French design. 

Inside, light panelled walls, vaulted ceilings and a subtle colour palette of cool greys and whites emanates a feeling of French chic.  Every room has its own 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.

If you’re looking for a lodge with real personality both inside and out then this is the lodge for you!

The Classic Luxury Lodge (40’ x 20’)

Bright and comfortable with a fresh and airy feel, the affordable Classic is perfect for getting away from it all with its unique character and true Wessex style.

On entering through large French doors, the spacious living area immediately evokes a feeling of comfort and ease. The white panelled ceiling and large windows accentuate the feeling of space and with its soft colour pallet and comfortable sofas, you’ll be able to relax and unwind in true style.

The high gloss kitchen provides ample cupboard space in addition to accommodating a full complement of integrated kitchen appliances. A particular feature of the kitchen is the wide work surface between the kitchen and dining areas, which creates a breakfast bar in addition to providing an extremely practical work area.

Light and inviting the bedrooms continue the fresh and comfortable feel with soft checked fabrics, panelled feature walls and freestanding Bentley furniture. Well equipped and stylish, the contemporary styled bathroom and en-suite are ideal for having a soak and unwinding at the end of the day.

Already re-established as a firm favourite, the Classic lives up to its name and is sure to stand the test of time.

The Contemporary Luxury Lodge (45’ x 20’)

Sleek, with clean lines and a distinctive architectural glazed front, the Contemporary exudes the style and individual character synonymous of Wessex.

Clad in Yellowstone CanExel (also available in a range of other colours and claddings), the Contemporary has two sets of patio doors to the front which afford fantastic holiday practicality with a true sense of style. Exterior lighting in the bold soffit overhead illuminates the front elevation at night and with its clean uncomplicated lines, natural light and versatile space, this lodge sits perfectly in any surrounding.

The professionally designed interior combines high style with luxurious accommodation and includes fully integrated appliances as standard. Highly atmospheric, the beautiful interior design incorporates freestanding furniture and natural linen fabrics giving a chic and modern feel.

The Dorset Park Home (40’ 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 CanExel cladding within a central roof dormer giving a relaxed and welcoming feel.  Details such as the box bay windows to the front of the home, the unusual extended overhang and feature cladding to each roof pitch all come together to give a quiet yet confident presence.

The clever layout, designed for how we lead our lives today 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. 

The beautiful interior design, in a simple colour palette of soft silvers and greys, is complemented by carefully chosen furnishings including Bentley bedsteads, a Corndell dining suite and cabinet furniture and a Buoyant lounge suite.  The kitchen, as you would expect from Wessex, provides luxury alongside convenience and includes integrated appliances, soft close doors and draws and stylish Porcelanosa wall tiles.  The bedrooms in soft tones are elegantly and simply furnished and the bathroom and en-suite continue the understated luxury with beautiful Porcelanosa wall tiles and carefully chosen fixtures and fittings.

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.
