Willerby celebrates 75 years in business
To mark the occasion, Willerby has unveiled a new entry-level lodge, created with affordability in mind and designed to appeal to families who are buying a holiday home with input from more than one generation.
Named the Hayward, layout options include one with four bedrooms. You can read a detailed review of this lodge on on page 54 of Park & Holiday Home Inspiration Issue 21.
Willerby has a fascinating manufacture origin. In the 1940s, at the time when the leisure industry was just beginning to rise, Walter Allen was making beehives in the East Yorkshire village of Willerby. He saw an opportunity, as demand for holiday caravans was just beginning to emerge, and switched to building caravans, setting the foundation for the empire that is Willerby today.
Willerby is proud of its heritage; one of the first, tiny touring caravans was called the Vogue and that name is still used today – for a luxury holiday home. As the company switched from making touring caravans to statics, and demand began to rise, the company moved to its present site in Hull.
Today, the company makes 13 holiday homes, five holiday lodges, plus five homes in the Willerby Bespoke range of park homes and lodges. The company has a 90-acre manufacturing site and also has three showgrounds, two in England and one in Scotland.
Willerby perpetuates its link with the insect that is rated as the most important one in the world; the ‘Willerbee’ is the mascot for its owners’ club.
