Hot off the press – the ultimate Hot tub holiday!
25 August 2017
We’ve just completed the refurbishment of our famous A-frame Park Collection lodges at Clowance, and if you love luxury self-catering holidays in Cornwall, this is definitely the place for you!
Sleeping up to 6 people, this lodge is perfect for a family-friendly break. It is finished to the highest quality and now boasts a stunning glass extension to the rear that opens out onto a spacious decking area with seating, sun loungers and a fantastic hot tub.
No sooner had we finished testing the bubbles we caught up with the designer on the project Simon Bray to discover what inspired him – especially the creation of the upstairs children’s cave.
Here’s what he had to say.
What was your inspiration for the new Park Collection A-Frame lodge?
“I’m not sure that there’s a single source of inspiration, it’s more a case of tucking different ideas away when I see something I like and then playing with the design in my head until it all gels together.
The upstairs bedroom in the A-Frame has always been a room that children love due to its quirky, cosy nature. When walking around the original lodge going upstairs made me feel like I was entering a cave and a designer I know called Sarah created the murals that have made it really special.”
What was the trickiest part of the project?
“Probably the trickiest problem to solve was getting more space and light into the lodge while staying sympathetic to the A-Frame design. I was playing around with ideas and ways to fill in the original end of the frame with glass when I had a lightbulb moment and the triangular glass extension surfaced. A company called Apropos have done a great job and I think the extension looks fabulous from inside and out.”
Finally, what new project are you currently working on for Luxury Lodge Estates?
“I’m currently working on a fabulous development of the Coach House complex at Clowance which will be amazing when it’s finished in the Spring 2018. I’ve also been working on a refurbishment of the Clowance central facility so I’m excited about that also!”
