We take a look at Cambrian, one of the UK’s leading park and leisure home manufacturers, and take you on a tour of their outstanding holiday lodge designs.
Based in Snowdonia, Cambrian produces homes for residential and lodge parks in a variety of beautiful locations. This is a manufacturer with a distinctive style which runs throughout their park and leisure homes. As a result, you tend to be able to spot Cambrian work without any signage. However, don’t be fooled into thinking that makes them predictable, because it doesn’t!
Cambrian are ones to watch for design innovation, so they usually set trends rather than follow. Importantly, Cambrian tailor their homes to meet their customers’ needs and, as a result, each Cambrian home tends to be a bespoke model.
Cambrian have an established range of models which provide the starting point for most homes produced. There’s something to suit all tastes and pockets, yet always with that classy look and feel. Cambrian designs keep their homes clutter-free, and every element has a purpose or adds a flourish of style. It’s all tastefully thought through, and that’s something you can rely on them for.
For a traditional feel you might look at ‘The Cottage’ with its really homely feel. For something nautical and quirky ‘The Maritime’ might tempt. Alternatively, lovers of modern contemporary might love the Horizon, whilst the best-selling Plantation appeals to all.
Cambrian are also well known for manufacturing cutting edge models with real “wow” factor. Therefore their show-stopping models create a buzz amongst those seeing them for the first time. Their most remarkable models include their Skylantern, an example of beautifully executed leisure lodge engineering.
Editor Bella Brodie visited the first Skylantern on Fallbarrow Park, Lake Windermere. She said: “This really is a ground-breaking lodge. The fine detail is incredible. Every thought has gone into making it exciting and enjoyable to stay in.”
“Lodges like this are not simply designed. Instead they are created in partnership with the parks they are destined for to make the best of the views available.”
Cambrian’s Reef Edge
The Reef Edge is another spectacular lodge, with its raised frontage and bi-folding doors perfect for parks with panoramic views. Its open plan design and bedrooms with panelled feature walls give the lodge a really luxurious feel.
The Menai was one of the stars of 2015. It boasts an innovative and contemporary living area with fantastic use of materials and textures. Another lodge with a raised frontage and bi-folding doors, it also has a lot of clever gadgetry built in. As a result, everything combines to make time spent in this lodge a soothing and relaxing experience.
These really are lodges to fall in love with. In many of the top UK locations, you’ll generally find a Cambrian lodge.
What’s next for Cambrian?
The next new model for Cambrian is the Serenity.
This will have two sets of bi-fold doors either side of an entertainment centre plinth to the front. The two bedrooms each have en-suite bathrooms, and there is a separate study.
The large living area is increased in size to allow for two L-shaped settees. The stunning look will include vertical grey Canexel cladding with black window trim and LED lighting.
Special interior touches will include remote controlled Velux windows, Panasonic surround sound system and hidden extractor in kitchen island.
Cambrian are renowned for their bespoke leisure homes, and consistently build their lodges to a residential standard. Hence, they are now looking to bring the same quality, flair and innovation to the residential park home market.
They are definitely ones to watch, so make sure to explore Cambrian homes at shows or in parks. See the Cambrian website for a list of parks.
