This month we've launched our latest premium holiday home designed to maximise living space and create the perfect place to relax and unwind.
The Astoria is the first new launch of our special 75th anniversary year and reinforces our position at the forefront of design innovation in the industry.
The new model can be viewed exclusively at our newest showground, at Southport on Merseyside, which will open on 12th April.
The showground opening will come on a big day for the holiday homes industry as lockdown restrictions are eased to allow holiday parks and non-essential retail to re-open.
Expertly created following feedback from existing Willerby owners, the Astoria features a beautifully spacious media room lounge, a stylish yet practical Italian-inspired linear kitchen and luxurious bed and bathroom facilities.
The kitchen includes integrated fixtures, such as a microwave and fridge-freezer, as well as an oven and separate hob, glass splashback, extractor fan and LED lighting. Meanwhile, the elegant L-shaped dinette complements the area with bench seating, under seat storage, a panelled feature wall and a free-standing dining table and chair, ideal for family meals shared with loved ones.
With generous entertaining and social space, the lounge is also a great setting for cosy movie nights relaxing on the L-shaped freestanding sofa, which includes a handy fold-out bed, and contemporary ladder-style media unit with wall-mounted television point, framed by statement LED lighting and tall vertical windows.
Taking every detail into consideration, the Astoria’s main bedroom features a king size bed complete with LED lighting to the headboard and storage, a large wardrobe with built-in drawers and hooks, a ladder-style dresser with a vanity mirror, drawer storage and stool, wall-mounted television point and bedside cabinets.
The family shower room includes a walk-in shower, a mounted wash basin on a vanity unit and heated backlit mirror, as well as a generous en-suite shower in both the two and three bed models.
The Astoria is the only premium Willerby holiday home with hard flooring throughout the living space as standard and the only 13ft model on the market with a linear-style kitchen.
A range of optional features include CanExel® composite timber cladding in a range of colours and customers can choose a bath in place of a walk-in shower in the two-bedroom model.
Other optional extras include an integrated MP3 Bluetooth sound system, integrated washer/dryer and slimline dishwasher, a rug in the lounge, a coordinated bedding pack and Hypnos a mattress upgrade.
The exterior of the Astoria is guaranteed to make an impression on the holiday park, with a front window which follows the angle of the offset pitched roof, and contemporary outdoor lighting.
The Astoria is an ideal design for those looking for a less traditional style of holiday home and is available in two sizes: 40ft by 13ft (sleeping six) and 42ft by 13ft (sleeping eight).
Both models will be available for prospective buyers to view at our new Southport showground. The venue is our third showground and makes the fantastic Willerby range easily accessible to many more holiday home buyers in a location perfectly placed near popular holiday park regions in the North West, North Wales and the Lake District.
The Astoria will have pride of place among 15 Willerby designs on display, including 10 holiday homes, three holiday lodges, one bespoke lodge and one residential park home.
Rob Lawrence, Head of Product Management at Willerby, said: “The Astoria is a new kind of holiday home for a new kind of holiday home owner.
“Like the Mapleton and Brookwood in 2020, we developed the Astoria because our research has shown us there is a new kind of holiday home owner coming to the market.
“These new owners are used to holidaying in hotels and apartments where light and space are the focus and that’s what the Astoria offers in spades.
“The studio-style design delivers maximum living space in the areas you want it most, while the LED feature lighting in the front and back guarantees the right ambience whether you’re at rest or play.
“We can’t wait to share the Astoria with the public and show them what we’ve been working on during lockdown.”
The Astoria has a RRP from £46,350 excluding VAT.
