Wessex to Launch all-new models by Jill Withers at Beaulieu!
2nd September 2016
Wessex is once again looking forward to exhibiting at Holiday Caravan 2016 (Beaulieu) on the stunning Beaulieu Estate in the New Forest from 23rd to 25th September (22nd September trade day). It’s set to be an exciting show for Wessex who will be displaying four models, two of which are new model launches, designed by Jill Withers, Wessex’s original and much revered designer!
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 Cranborne Luxury Park Home (50’ x 20’)
Product Launch – designed by Jill Withers
Marking the start of an exciting new era for Wessex, the Cranborne is the first park home in the range to be designed by Jill Withers. Sleek and polished with a feel of openness, this is a home with a strong and confident personality that emanates luxury and high style.
The front of the home, which is perfectly symmetrical, makes a bold statement. Two large roof dormers sit either side of a composite front door with half height square leaded glazing to either side. Feature cladding in River Rock Canexel to the roof dormers and to the centre, front of the home is complimented by a stucco finish that is perfectly colour matched, and further windows with part square leaded glazing detail complete the look.
On stepping inside, you immediately get a feeling of openness with a large, contemporary styled, semi-open plan living space. The lounge and dining area form an ‘L’ shape and the kitchen is open through to the dining area. Vaulted, panelled ceilings further add to the feeling of spaciousness and a skylight over the front entrance lets in plenty of natural light.
The interior design here is striking and bold yet relaxed and comfortable, with feature granite wallpaper, oak engineered, wood flooring and distressed white and driftwood furniture. Large comfortable sofas and footstools provide plenty of room to sit back and relax and a feature coal effect fire with angled flue sits in a black granite hearth making a real design statement.
The impressive kitchen is exceptionally well kitted-out and includes a Belfast sink, Silestone worktop, plenty of storage space with soft / self close doors and drawers, a USB charger point and Smeg appliances including a stainless steel range cooker, microwave, dishwasher and American fridge-freezer. There’s also a separate utility room with a second Belfast sink and Smeg washing machine and tumble dryer.
Through into the master bedroom, with hessian backed carpet underfoot and the luxury continues. Beautiful white, hand-painted furniture includes a King-size bed, bedside tables, writing table and rattan high back chair. Fitted wardrobes with feature Lancaster oak and stone grey panelled, sliding doors to both bedrooms provide plenty of hanging space and a colour scheme of warm greys highlighted by striking Magenta adds personality with a strong sense of style.
The fully tiled en-suite is reminiscent of 5 star hotel luxury and includes a decadent walk-in shower with oversized soaker. Also fully tiled, the family bathroom includes a shower over bath, contemporary grey gloss vanity unit and natural rattan storage stool; a continuation of the opulent styling which allows all family members to quite literally soak up the luxury!
The 50’ x 20’ model to be on display has been pre-sold to Royale Parks Group and is available for sale – POA. For more information please call 0800 085 5202.
The Sanctuary Luxury Lodge (50’ x 22’)
Product Launch – designed by Jill Withers
The Sanctuary is the first luxury lodge to be designed by Jill Withers since her return to Wessex and it certainly doesn’t disappoint! With an urban / warehouse feel, moody hues, subtle patterns and cutting-edge furniture, the Sanctuary provides a wonderful, atmospheric environment and the perfect holiday retreat.
When it comes to the exterior styling and features, this lodge is really something special. Beautiful A-grade cedar, horizontal and vertical cladding (other claddings available), means this lodge fits perfectly in park settings, not just providing a view but complimenting it. Square leaded glazing can be found to the living area and master bedroom and French doors to both the lounge and dining areas are perfectly positioned for holiday practicality. Adding interest and more than a touch of luxury, there’s an integrated BBQ area off the living space with Smeg BBQ grill, and an integrated decking area to the master bedroom provides couples with the perfect space for time-out.
Inside this lodge is equally exceptional. White panelled, vaulted ceilings throughout and exposed feature beams to the living space and master bedroom give the feel of an exclusive warehouse / loft apartment. This feel is further accentuated by beautiful natural oak, engineered flooring which can be found to the master bedroom, hall, kitchen and dining area.
The layout of the spacious, open-plan living space which incorporates lounge, dining and kitchen areas is quirky and interesting, thanks to the integrated BBQ area. The luxurious lounge includes a large Jefferson style corner sofa with scatter cushions, a low storage footstool, designer, weathered oak sideboard and hessian-backed carpet. Feature wallpaper in moody greys flows through into the dining area which features a Willis & Gambier dining suite, illuminated by sleek pendant lighting. A blackboard with hooks hangs on the wall behind this, again accentuates the loft living feel.
The large kitchen area is every foodies dream. Designer Smeg appliances include a range cooker with extractor hood, splash back and wok support, pizza stone, dishwasher and washer/dryer – there’s even a Smeg sink! There’s also a Samsung black gloss American fridge-freezer and Bosch microwave. A large kitchen island with wine cooler and wine rack further adds to the individual character of the lodge and the look is finished by Gallo style kitchen units with soft / self close doors and drawers and a Silestone, Coral Clay worktop and up-stand.
Through into the master bedroom and the warehouse style continues but with a French colonial twist. Here an elaborate King-size 4-poster bed, mirror, 2 drawer chest with marble top, two bedside tables with marble tops, an Italian leather chair and a Whitechapel bookcase can be found. A large walk-in-wardrobe then leads through into a luxurious en-suite wet-room with a walk-in shower with over-size soaker and a Roca base vanity unit and basin.
The second bedroom has more of a vintage feel and includes freestanding Harvard Oak twin beds, a bedside cabinet, tallboy, blackboard with hooks, vintage leather stool and an Italian leather chair. Fitted wardrobes with sliding doors provide plenty of space for a holiday wardrobe and a fully-tiled family bathroom with shower over bath means that no-one misses out in the luxury stakes!
The Beaulieu model is available for sale. For more information please call 0845 257 0400 .

New 2017 model
Sleek, with clean lines and a distinctive architectural glazed front, the new Contemporary Vue, with its fresh beachy feel and impressive roof deck is all set to draw in the crowds at this years show.
Clad in Sierra Canexel (also available in a range of other colours and claddings), the Contemporary Vue has two sets of patio doors to the front, which afford fantastic holiday practicality with a true sense of style. Exterior lighting in the soffit overhead illuminates the front elevation at night and with a feature outside staircase and spacious roof deck, the Contemporary Vue is the perfect choice for parks with a view!
The large open-plan living space has architectural feature beams and carefully chosen furnishings in soft blues, which come together to give a lovely relaxed, and slightly nautical, feel. The white panelled, vaulted ceiling enhances the light and spacious feel, and with comfortable sofas, a simple yet stylish dining suite, large breakfast bar and fully equipped kitchen, this lodge is not only practical but has real character and charm too.
Beautiful bedrooms, in soothing tones of soft blues and fresh whites flow from the living space with the same relaxed and stylish feel. Attention has been paid to each and every detail and in the master bedroom, the en-suite can be found concealed behind sliding mirrored doors, which allows even more light to fill the room.
The Contemporary Vue provides a wonderful beachy, relaxed environment with everything needed for the perfect holiday… who could ask for more!

The Classic Luxury Lodge (40’ x 20’)

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 palette 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.

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.
