THE LOFT (42' x 13')

A spacious and luxurious single unit lodge designed as the perfect getaway for couples, The Loft is the first single unit leisure lodge Country Homes have launched, demonstrating their increased commitment to working closely with parks to get a specific home to meet a particular market.   

A real talking point at Stoneleigh World of Park and Leisure Homes due to the slightly raunchy interiors, The Loft showed 'shades of grey' appeal and a definite bit of sparkle perfect for a romantic retreat.   Featuring prominently in lodge is the airy front aspect with French doors and a large full height boxed window, perfect for making the most of great views.

This luxurious lodge is a response to a potential gap in the market identified by Neil and Peter Morris of Elm Farm Country Park near Frinton-On-Sea, Essex. Their feedback based on selling lodges and static caravans they'd sold suggested there was a need for a lodge suitable for a couple rather than a family - a ‘step up' from the static caravan and without compromising on luxury.   

Country Homes' managing director Peter Berwick met Neil and Peter on the park to view current stock, look at the plots available and get a feel for what might be required.  The brief he returned with was for a spacious single unit lodge with a bright, modern feel allowing lots of light in.  Peter and Neil visited the factory in Suffolk to work on the specification and plans further, and visit to a local bistro with provided a flash of inspiration perfect for the lodge décor.   The wood panelling and furniture had the exact grey and black tones they were looking for and back at the factory the team went through many options to incorporate that into the scheme which works so successfully in the final model.   

The kitchen has a black, glossy, modern apartment feel with top of the range fittings achieving the same high standard as seen in many twin lodges.    That high quality theme is continued throughout, creating the perfect environment for couples to enjoy quality time together as an escape from busy lifestyles.  The double bedroom has spacious walk in wardrobes ready for speedy unpacking, and a study has been incorporated to make the switch from everyday life seamless, making breaks really easy without worrying about being unable to fire off the odd email or surf the net if needed.   The Loft displayed at Stoneleigh is a 1 bedroomed version with a study although plans for a two bedroomed version are also available to view at Stoneleigh.

Peter Berwick at Country Homes said; "We're very proud of The Loft, and always enjoy working closely with customers in this way - it is a great way of achieving wonderful results which really ‘hit the spot' with buyers.  Our ethos is to go above and beyond a level of service park owners will have experienced before. That makes the process really enjoyable for everyone concerned, and ensures they get exactly what they are looking for at the end of the process - a home with solid appeal to their target market."

Speaking on behalf of Elm Farm Country Park Neil Morris said; "We really enjoy working with Country Homes, the quality of the product is fantastic and they definitely interpreted our brief really well with The Loft - the result is stunning"
