Packed with style, and designed for affordability, the Hazlewood is the baseline of Willerby’s three park homes in terms of price – but its style, quality of furnishings, finish and overall cosy appeal belies that status.
The two homes above the Hazlewood in the price echelon are the Charnwood, and the flagship Delamere. All three can be bespoke-designed to buyers’ tastes and requirements, hence they are marketed under Willerby Bespoke Park Homes & Lodges, a sister brand to Willerby’s holiday homes and lodges.
Among the Willerby Hazlewood’s size options are a 35ft x 20ft park home, a 40ft x 20ft, a 42ft x 20ft, and a 45ft x 20ft. This latter option has a study. Our review example is the 42ft x 20ft – and all of them have benefitted from subtle updates for 2022.
Externally, the Willerby Hazlewood now has a rather imposing entrance; a window, almost triangular in shape, sits above the door, and the door is recessed slightly, into a smart grey porch flanked by two cylindrical spotlights that emit light from both the top and base.
Inside, the window above the door creates the suggestion of a cathedral-style vaulted ceiling. The result of this styling, both inside and out, is to give the Willerby Hazlewood a distinctive, stylish entrance.
As you step inside, you quickly realise that this is a stylish park home throughout. The kitchen, galley-style and spacious, is crisply modern in design, with units finished in a glossed pale fawn shade that Willerby calls ‘pebble’.
White worktops with a subtle texture, white walls, and Porcelanosa tiles creating a splashback behind the hob, all combine to give the overarching impression of clean, crisp, functional styling.
Storage capacity in the kitchen is impressive. There are six base cabinets, four drawers, a cutlery drawer, plus two deep drawers ideal for pans, in the main kitchen area. There is also a separate array of units at the end of the kitchen, giving you seven more cabinets plus also housing the oven. Standard equipment includes a four-burner hob, a washing machine and a dishwasher.
Among the updates for 2022, are new lounge fabrics in a pale fawny-grey shade that is guaranteed to align with most peoples’ tastes – but if not, the Willerby Bespoke service is on hand to offer alternatives.
The curtain shades – fawns and creams – are similarly chosen for wide-appeal. Those in the lounge, dining area and second bedroom have an abstract big-leaf pattern in a soft fawn shade on a cream background. In the main bedroom, the pattern switches to a leaf-and-sprig design, again subtle and guaranteed to suit most tastes.
The Willerby Hazlewood dining area forms an L-shape next to the lounge. A (smart white panelled) door leads into the kitchen; importantly, this is a kitchen that can be completely closed off at both ends, enabling you to confine cooking aromas when needed.
The bedrooms have a definite air of luxury, with deep padded headboards and upholstered cube stools to the dressing tables. The second bedroom has the advantage of a bay window.
The en-suite shower room and bathroom, featuring large grey tiles in a stone-effect design, and white everywhere else, are superbly modern in style and effortlessly continue that luxurious theme. The introduction, for 2022 of ‘waterfall’ taps (the water comes out from the top, instead of under, the faucet) is a nice style touch.
Verdict: The Willerby Hazlewood park home packs a punch well above its price point, by means of its capacious, super-modern kitchen, its bathroom styling and its comfortable, quality furnishings throughout.
Its imposing recessed-porch entrance and feature window above the door give this park home extra character.
The three-piece lounge suite might be traditional in concept but its plain lines and fabric are thoroughly modern – and the bolsters inside the armrests on the settee give exceptionally cosy comfort.
This is a park home of style and comfort, of chic modernity – and with an entrance that creates just a touch of grandeur.
Plus points: The versatility offered by Willerby’s bespoke service. The white, ultra-modern kitchen styling. The generous amount of storage space in the kitchen
Minus points: Although the kitchen has plenty of storage, buyers with a lot of clothes would find bedroom storage isn’t on a par
In a nutshell: A classically laid-out park home with a superb galley kitchen, a separate lounge and dining area and a master bedroom with a chic and stylish en-suite.
