Wessex to exhibit at Holiday Caravan 2017 (Beaulieu)
17th August 2017
Wessex is once again looking forward to exhibiting at Holiday Caravan 2017 (Beaulieu) on the stunning Beaulieu Estate in the New Forest from 22nd to 24th September (21st September trade day). It’s set to be an exciting show for Wessex who will be displaying three stunning luxury lodges: the Allure, an all-new country-styled, pet friendly lodge, the fresh and beachy 2018 Summerhouse and the chic and stylish Classic.
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 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 the models to be on display:
The Allure Luxury Lodge
13.716m x 6.012m (45'x 20')
Think of the perfect, cosy, holiday retreat where you can relax in style and comfort with all your family… the all-new Allure luxury lodge provides all this and much more!
Clad in beautiful larch, a split-level roofline, highlighted by feature lighting in the extended front soffit makes a bold statement and offers something a bit different. Full-height windows and bi-fold doors to the front of the lodge accentuate the distinctive, architectural styling; further bi-fold doors to the lounge and full-height windows to the master bedroom on the side elevation, complete the look.
On entering through a welcoming, country-style front door, all family members are catered for. There’s a large boot seat with wicker storage baskets, a mirror with coat hooks, the washing machine is conveniently tucked out of the way here, there’s plenty of storage and there’s even shower facilities for your furry friends (this lodge is also available with a standard utility room). No need for dirty paws to traipse through into the main living space, but if they do, it doesn’t matter thanks to a practical choice of laminate flooring in a forgiving warm wood finish.
Through into the spacious open-plan living area with its white panelled vaulted ceilings and there’s a wonderful cosy and welcoming feel. There’s a snug, lounge, dining area and kitchen and a soft, country chic colour scheme of oatmeal’s, wood, stone and accents of berry flows throughout.
The snug with its comfy love seat, beanbag, storage trunks and feature larch shelves provides a wonderful space to snuggle down with a good book. Full height windows, a skylight and further windows to the side elevation allow plenty of natural light to flow within, and of course, every good snug needs a USB point and TV point which can be found here too!
The spacious lounge area is light and bright thanks to two sets of bi-fold doors. A fantastic feature for making the most of a view, and to extend the living space outside on a warm summer’s day or night. There’s a large comfortable sofa and two cosy armchairs to sink into, and white painted country style furniture with lime-washed tops including a coffee table, sideboard and TV cabinet.
The kitchen provides the perfect space to rustle up a holiday feast and includes a large walk-in larder, ceramic sink and central workspace between the kitchen and dining areas with a five-burner hob and island extractor. Integrated Hotpoint appliances include a fridge freezer, microwave, single electric oven and dishwasher, and fitted Deli style kitchen units with soft / self close doors and drawers and a Corian Burled Beach worktop complete the practical and stylish arrangement.
Next to the kitchen area, a white, country-style extending dining table and benches with lime-washed tops is over-lit by a super-stylish, designer box pendant light; a lovely relaxed space to wile away the hours over a hearty meal and a glass of wine or two!
Through into the master bedroom and guests are incredibly well catered for. There’s a waxed oak king-size bed, bedside cabinets, chest of drawers, freestanding gents and hanging wardrobes and a large mirror. A pavilion style fuschia upholstered chair sits next to full-height triple panel windows to make this a room with a view, and beautiful feature wallpaper in soft, soothing tones, compliments the colourway which flows through from the main living area.
The luxurious en-suite carries through hints of fuschia over the warm natural colour scheme. Here there’s not only a bath, but there’s also a shower with stylish minimalist handset, and a beautiful Hampton vanity unit with counter-top basin adds style and a certain sophistication.
The second bedroom with white painted twin beds, a freestanding wardrobe, bedside cabinet and mirror, is equally as luxurious and beautiful. In this room curtains, scatter cushions and a lightshade, in a warm blue, tartan style fabric give a different, but equally relaxed feel.
The family shower room mirrors the colourway from the second bedroom and includes a large walk-in shower with minimalist handset and Hampton vanity unit with counter-top basin.
Not only is this beautiful addition to the Wessex range practical, it also has a wonderful warm, relaxed feel that make it the perfect lodge retreat.
The 45’ x 20’ model to be displayed has been pre-sold to Lochmanor Lodge Estate, Scotland and is available for sale at £185,000 with veranda. For more information please visit www.lochmanor.co.uk or call 01764 684 518.
12.192m x 6.012m (40'x 20')
Fresh and beachy with a free and easy spirit, the Summerhouse Lodge is perfect for enjoying carefree days with friends and family.
The exterior clad in Yellowstone CanExel (also available in a range of other colours and claddings), benefits from tall, slender windows, and French doors to both the lounge and master bedroom invite the outside in, creating a lovely holiday vibe.
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 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 extra large, double-ended 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 40’ x 20’ model to be displayed is available for sale. For more information please call 0845 257 0400 or email email@example.com.

Bright and comfortable with a fresh and airy feel, the affordable Classic Lodge 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 sit back and relax in true style.
The high gloss kitchen provides ample cupboard space in addition to accommodating the 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 - a perfect haven on a warm summers night or cold winters evening. 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.
A firm favourite with luxury lodge parks throughout the UK, the Classic certainly lives up to its name!
