2020 Wessex Canford park home review

The Wessex Canford park home has a study and a utility room – so two important practicality boxes get very firm ticks.

Styling is very much modern clean-lines mixed with classical influence.

Among the ultra modern eye-catching elements of the Wessex Canford’s décor is the use of deep aubergine in the kitchen for the lower cabinet doors.

This rich colour is in sharp contrast to the cool greys of the upper cabinet doors and the soft fawn shade of the tiles.

The aubergine theme extends into the utility room, off the kitchen, again teamed with grey. There’s lots of storage space is in the utility room, together with the washing machine and central heating unit.

And the presence of a utility room makes the Canford a good choice for buyers who have dogs – offering somewhere to wipe muddy paws before they enter the kitchen and beyond. And there’s plenty of floor space for this and other purposes.

Between the kitchen and the dining area an island unit serves as a demarcation – as well as forming another practical feature of the Wessex Canford park home.

A wine rack for 21 bottles!

There’s a feature in the park home’s dining area that some buyers will see as practical, others sheer indulgence. It’s a wine rack – with individual spaces for a staggering 21 bottles!

The classic styling element of the Canford is here in the dining room and also the lounge, in the form of Shaker-inspired furniture.

In the lounge the Shaker style statement is a traditional sideboard, with three cabinets and three drawers, continuing the good-storage theme from the kitchen and utility room.

Plus, two sofas amply take care of all your comfort needs.

The cabinetry is taupe-painted, with limed oak veneer tops. A tiled fireplace houses an electric stove and a chunky, reclaimed oak-style mantel sits above the fireplace.

Comfort in the study is taken care of too – there’s a splendid high-backed swivel chair luxuriously upholstered in grey velvet, and studded around the edges of the backrest; another touch of classic styling.

You can also have your Canford up to 65ft x 22ft; other sizes and layouts can be obtained.


Verdict: There’s almost a cottage feel about the Wessex Canford park home, created by Shaker style taupe-shade furnishings and limed oak cabinet tops. The whole furnishing effect is cosy and homely, yet there are some stunning modern elements in the design, notably in the choice of bold kitchen colour and in the bathroom styling.

Plus points: The option of a utility room and bold kitchen colour. Many size and layout options and the wine rack for 21 bottles!

Minus points: Those who don’t drink wine will want an alternative storage unit in place of that wine rack!

In-a-nutshell: Contemporary yet cottagey, and with lots of layout options it’s easy to see why the new Canford is proving popular.
