Holiday home review: Willerby Vogue

ed14d485-2b14-4743-b390-5c8ee77af1d9

Surprises and luxuries! Willerby’s latest creation is a super luxury holiday home with features including a bedroom skylight, a reclining settee and an American fridge-freezer

Vogue has always been a key model for Willerby; its origins go back into the mists of caravan time when Willerby made touring caravans – and the cute little Vogue pictured in the circle on this page was among the best-sellers.

Now, the latest Vogue has been unveiled. It’s anything but cute and little. It’s gorgeous, spacious – and luxurious. This is the Vogue Classique – and it has lots of surprises.

The main bedroom has a large skylight and double, floor-to-ceiling French windows to open onto your decking or patio.

One of the two lounge settees reclines. The dining suite seats six. There’s an American-style double fridge-freezer with a water chiller and a steel front that shimmers in the light. The

bathroom is stylishly stark monochrome, with a panel of black tiles above the bath and a grey and white patterned floor covering.

Everything about the Vogue is distinctive and different – especially the shape of the exterior. The roof slopes upwards, towards the front of the home. Windows are set into this elevation, at the front and sides, above the main windows.

Lounge

The sumptuous seating is upholstered in lovely pale grey velvety fabric. Six scatter cushions ensure cosiness. The settee that has a reclining mechanism also has a built-in USB port. The other settee incorporates a pull-out double bed.

Curtains that closely tone with the upholstery hang on steel poles all around window area. Pale woodwork and pale grey carpeting add to the pastel décor creation that gives the Vogue a light, airy look. Speakers are set into the ceiling of the lounge. Feature radiators are in both the lounge and dining areas.

The layout is open plan, with the position of one of the settees creating a natural divide between the lounge and dining area.

Amazing glass globed pendant lights define the dining area; they’re half silvered, half clear glass, with squirrel-cage bulbs to add interest. Brushed steel sockets and switches are a refined touch throughout the Vogue Classique.

Kitchen

The enormous fridge-freezer is a Beko model. Kitchen equipment includes a five-burner hob with cast-iron pan supports, a stainless-steel oven and grill, a curved extractor fan, a dishwasher and washing machine – and an integrated wine rack.

A skylight ensures there’s extra light into the kitchen; beige blinds are fitted for times when you may want to exclude the light.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

The 43ft by 14ft Vogue Classique has two bedrooms. The main bedroom has a king-size bed with a lift-up base to reveal a storage area. A ‘dressing pack’ – bedding plus scatter cushions – is included as standard.

This is a luxurious bedroom, with a large dressing table that has six drawers and a silver-effect mirror set into a beautiful pale wood panel surround. The Velux window has a blackout blind. A walk-in wardrobe and an en suite bath with over-bath shower complete the luxury arrangement.

As standard, the second bedroom has twin beds but buyers can opt for a double bed.

There’s no risk of the shower room steaming up – it’s fitted with an extractor fan. And the shower has a very unusual feature – a five-function head, which means you can select the number of streams of water coming through the shower head by twisting the shower nozzle – you can have one large, powerful stream or split it into a number of smaller streams.

Options

A range of options is available including an awning for the front of the home, and a Juliet balcony!

You can choose from a range of exterior CanExel colours, or you can go for timber. You can choose graphite-shade window frames instead of white. And you can specify a smart room thermostat. There’s a wine cooler for the kitchen.

You can opt for a shower instead of a bath in the bedroom en suite. You can go for air conditioning in the bedroom – complete with a remote control. And, of course, as with all Willerby units, you can have the Simply Pawsome pet pack. That option gets you an outdoor tap, a dog gate, a stable door – and a Willerby dog bowl!
