Victory Leisure homes debuted its Lakewood lodge at the 2020 Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show and it was an instant hit.
Victory Leisure Homes is a company that’s moving fast, with new construction ideas and new lodges being added, plus a very impressive visitor/customer centre now in operation.
Victory is part of the Rix Group and a recent factory tour proved that quality and design are its key priorities.
The new Victory Lakewood is a single holiday lodge designed for pitches that can’t take a twin unit – yet it’s still a good size. The exterior is finished in an aluminium wood grain plank effect, and the windows have a slight tint. The chassis is fully galvanised, plus full guttering and down spotlights are fitted.
The Lakewood lodge offers a large front lounge which is served by French doors and two side windows, to allow lots of extra daylight. The room is very light in neutral beige and cream colours with two sofas around the fireplace and a coffee table.
The three-seater sofa also doubles up as a sofa-bed. It’s all a rather pleasant place to be with complete privacy at night with full length curtains.
The dining table comfortably seats four on high backed upholstered chairs next to a large side window.
The Lakewood’s kitchen is split into two sections; the sink is on the opposite side of the room from the dining area while the gas hob and split built in oven is behind. There’s plenty of storage with a tall, slide-out, larder unit, and a fridge and separate freezer is also part of the spec. A dishwasher and microwave are included as standard too, and while worktop space is good, it’s not over generous.
Going through to the bedrooms the Victory Lakewood lodge has a hallway with the twin bedroom opposite the side entrance door. Two domestic sized single beds are offered here as well as two fitted wardrobes and a central chest of drawers between the beds. The twin room is quite spacious and with the central side window is bright and airy, with a lovely modern Roman blind.
Next door is the communal wash room with good-sized walk-in shower loo and contemporary designed hand basin with storage below. A wall mounted radiator is fitted and the room itself is pleasantly finished in matching colour scheme.
The main bedroom is spacious and feels luxurious at the same time, with mirrored sliding doors which take you through to the en-suite as well as a walk-in wardrobe.
Wood panelling behind the bed and mushroom coloured panels to the wardrobe and ceiling create warmth and a loft-style apartment look.
The walk-in wardrobe is ample in size while the en suite-doesn’t have much floor area but it’s designed to prove perfectly practical. Its décor is the same as the main washroom staying in line with the same colours.
There’s a small retro design dressing table in the bedroom plus a large side full-height window that can be ordered as French doors.
Verdict: The Victory Lakewood was a crowd puller at the February NEC show and that appeal has seen more sales mount up. In fact, our factory visit had 35 Lakewood lodge’s being built to order.
It’s a spacious lodge and contemporary in all areas. The split kitchen is a novel idea but would benefit from more worktop areas. But that large, comfortable lounge and sumptuous bedroom, means the Victory Lakewood is selling well. So, with new interior seamless wall joins and a quality build the Lakewood lodge is a good choice for 2021.
Plus points: Luxury double bedroom, large lounge and split kitchen area.
Minus points: Not over-generous kitchen worktop.
