Launched at the Glasgow caravan show in February this year the Mapleton holiday lodge has proved another winner for Willerby
A new twin lodge from Willerby – the company that has 75 years experience in holiday caravans, lodges and park homes – is never a disappointment.
With a top design team and a modern production plant in Hull the Willerby name has a vast heritage behind it. So the new, twin, 40ft x 20ft Mapleton offers a holiday lodge that’s modern and contemporary in its interior design.
The exterior is clad in vinyl cladding but CanExcel is optional with this wood finish on our review model. It’s typically Willerby outside in design but once you step inside the Mapleton holiday lodge it will blow you away.
In this video we take a look around the Willerby Mapleton holiday lodge:
The lounge area – named a media lounge by Willerby – has an optional full 4k, cinema surround sound system, which is ideally placed on the wall.
A large, relaxing, L-shaped settee is placed opposite a long cabinet with drawers and free standing table, plus wall-mounted shelf cabinets. They’re all very modern and stylish, with ambient, interchangeable mood lighting adding to the feel of the contemporary Mapleton holiday lodge.
There are plenty of windows, which gives a light and airy feel in the daytime. The lounge is next to the dining area, complete with a bench seat enabling four (or more) to dine in perfect comfort.
The Mapleton’s kitchen area is fully equipped, with excellent worktop and storage plus integrated fridge freezer, hob and grill, plus a separate four burner hob is included of course.
There’s more ambient lighting, plus a fitted microwave and an island breakfast bar. Plenty of sockets also include USB points and dimmable spot lights.
Walking through from the kitchen / dining area into the hallway, there’s a seat and hanging space for coats, hats and scarves. From here you go to the master bedroom which also has a delightful ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.
The master bedroom is large with a king-sized bed and also has built in dressing table, complete with large mirror and plenty of shelves. There are two side bed cabinets but no wall mounted cupboards above the bed.
However, the walk-in wardrobe offers a couple plenty of hanging and storage space and the en-suite has a walk-in shower plus neat (and very on trend) ladder shelving unit. There’s a good-sized vanity cupboard under the sink in here, as well as that ambient lighting carried on through from the rest of the Mapleton.
Now into the twin bedroom which you walk into a separate dressing area – a nice touch – complete with another walk-in wardrobe and chest of drawers.
The twin bedroom has 3ft wide beds and also a central chest of drawers between the beds.
The Mapleton’s main bathroom has a walk-in shower and again comes with a ladder storage shelf. Both bathrooms come with radiators too and a vanity unit with mounted deep hand basin.
Verdict: The Willerby Mapleton is a truly modern lodge which will win many admirers with its super large media lounge area – ideal for those days when the weather’s just too bad to venture outside.
The Mapleton is a spacious lodge with a light and airy interior and plenty of modern design twists.
Plus points: Media lounge area with optional cinema TV/Sound system, contemporary interior, good sized master bedroom.
Minus points: No wall mounted storage cupboard in bedrooms, second bedroom isn’t over large and no dishwasher as standard.
In a nutshell: The Mapleton offers a great lodge for four people and the modern overtones will appeal to all age groups – another designer winner from Willerby.
