As soon as you open the doors to the Grassmere the amount of natural light that flows in through the floor to ceiling double glazed windows instantly guides your eyes to the beautiful views of the park. After all, isn’t picturesque views one of the main reasons you’re wanting a holiday home in the country? Picture waking up to the morning sunshine gleaming through the windows, whilst sitting with a piping hot up of coffee soaking up the views. Bliss!

DSC_2841

If you’re a young family then the Grasmere is ideal with the amount of space the living room has to offer, perfect for kids getting stuck into playing or in other words making mess. If you’re an older family then adding an extra large coffee table and cosy tuffets to pop your feet onto could optimise the space. The neutral L shaped seating has clever storage underneath their cushions, so taking up blankets and festive decorations to store for the Christmas winter months would be ideal so you can spend a weekend in your holiday home at any time of the year!

Meanwhile, the dining area takes on the contemporary interior design trend of picnic seating with comfy cushioned seating to sit as many people as you can at the table.

DSC_2833DSC_2860DSC_2852

The kitchen area already comes complete with a large fridge freezer and single gas oven with grill. Finished in a neutral colour palette and modern design you can cook with practical worktops and maximum cupboard storage. Having the dining table placed into the kitchen area rather than off to the side like many other holiday homes, makes the Grasmere all the more unique and can even prove a great kitchen island surface to work off as well.

The spacious bathroom comes with a clean modern white suite complete with an enclosed shower. Liven the room up with some bursts of greenery to help you fully relax and unwind.  There is a theme of  wooden oak furniture throughout the Grasmere adding to the tactile essence of being in the countryside. Oak is also easy to pair with any colour theme so you can style your holiday home to whatever your taste.

If you’re someone who likes to hike in the countryside, then the bedroom is ideal to store all your hiking gear. Around a corner of the bedroom is an almost walk-in-wardrobe tucked away to keep the mess hidden so you can still feel peace whilst you sit in bed. Not only is this great if you’re a hiker, but great if you’re a hoarder of clothes- many of us guilty of that one. As this is a more affordable holiday home the storage is more simplistic with shelving units compared to draws, but can make a great statement to display all off your belongings. If you like organisation then IKEA organisers can help to give you the illusion of draws.

The plot is in a perfect location at Millbrook, right near the river so you can watch and listen to the stream as you escape reality in your holiday home.

Walk it: Cat Bells

IMG_3175

About a 45 minute drive up from Millbrook Caravan Park lies Cat Bells in the North Lakes, Keswick. Surprisingly for the picturesque views of Derwent Water, it’s a very moderate walk being mostly flat with a slight incline. This makes the path easy for the whole family to get involved without it being too overbearing for the little ones, or too strenuous for the inexperienced hiker.

IMG_3197
IMG_3183

There’s plenty to see along the way like farmland, repeat wave patterns of hills in the distance and of course the beautiful lake. For a more rocky and steep pathway you can follow the option of the more challenging route to give yourself even more satisfaction once you reach the peak.

Once at the top the view is magnificent but also full of life as Cat Bells is one of the most popular walks in Keswick. You can see couples tucking into their picnics and the friendly sheep of Cat Bells that are scattered across the hills. Watch out they don’t steal your lunch! Spending a Sunday afternoon looking over the beautiful reflection of the hills in the clear crisp waters of Derwent Water sounds just like the weekend wind down everyone needs before the Monday morning stress again. Professional hikers agree- there is no view more rewarding than Cat Bells.

Reward yourself with a nice cold pint in Keswick town afterwards. Cheers!

If you’re looking for a place to escape to in the countryside then why not go for the Willerby Countrystyle? I mean, it couldn’t get anymore literal than that. This holiday home does exactly what it says on the tin giving you the perfect stylish home from home but in the presence of the beautiful British countryside. Like what you hear so far? Us too- lets get to the details shall we…

First things first, SPACE, The Willerby is a 35’x12′ holiday home so you’ve stacks of room for the whole family to come up and make memories with you. You could even bring extra friends or just simply stretch and put your feet up, the generous seating area will cater for whichever you desire. In fact, the Willerby Countrystyle is one of the few Willerby holiday homes that has secret hidden storage to take advantage of the space even more (but more of that later). For a mid-range price at £33,495 the Countrystyle comes with some serious perks and luxury details.

The exterior is a gleaming environmental green in a cladding texture, complete with UPVC double glazed windows to keep the heat in and the rain out for those wetter days. Along with central heating and a toasty fire you can visit the Willerby Countrystyle whatever time of year and guaranteed to stay cosy and warm.

IMG_6968 2

The living area takes a neutral colour approach by using shades of a dark beige on the soft furnishings and light woods for the furniture. Storage is one of the best functions of the living area with unique overhead storage as well as large spacious cupboards around the interior. Whilst this is the Willerby Countrystyle after all, this holiday home wouldn’t be complete without country inspired interior design of course; with light floral patterned curtains and a shaker style kitchen. To help inject more country design stock up on the floral soft furnishings, animal inspired decorative accessories and pastel coloured pieces for a light bright interior. If you’re not into the feminine touch why not take on British country heritage instead by mixing tartans and tweeds for a moody cosy feel.

Screen Shot 2019-04-11 at 20.12.37IMG_6954 2

We’ve already mentioned the generous seating that stretches all the way around the front of the Willerby Countrystyle- but lets get to the dining area. Cleverly tucked away from the kitchen and walkway sits a family sized wooden dining table complete with a nifty soft cushioned stool which can be moved anywhere else desired in the holiday home (dressing table chair or emergency chair? You decide) You won’t be fighting for elbow room thats for sure as the Countrystyle has been designed to give each individual their personal space because of the seating adapting to a circular layout.

IMG_6956 2

A shaker kitchen really gives the Willerby Countrystyle the approval of country interior design. It’s bright, it’s sleek and most importantly functions as good as your kitchen from home. The Countrystyle already comes with a fridge/freezer, microwave, cooking hob and fan so you can get cooking as soon as you arrive for your first stay in your new holiday home. The wooden patchwork tops not only look like a contemporary twist on this shaker kitchen but also help the wooden choice of furniture flow throughout the different rooms.

IMG_6961 2IMG_6962 2

Both the master and twin bedrooms have that extra luxury by gifting the owners with a high quality bedding pack and comfort plus mattresses for all beds so you can get a dreamy nights sleep. After all your holiday is for relaxing after all. The master bed also lifts for under bed storage- ideal for shoes or lager items you can store out of sight and out of mind so your Countrystyle can keep its clean finish. Both bedrooms have overhead storage and separate wardrobes, with the master also having a dressing table and stool. Our personal favourite part of the bedroom (and also the living space) are the USB charging ports for your phones or any other devices which saves you messing around with bulky plugs and even saves your relief if you forget to bring your charging plug from home. Phew!
Bathroom is small but has enough space for a standing shower and under the sink storage to keep your essentials here when you go back home.

If you’re a couple, or even just looking for your own personal space, the Willerby Rio 10ft is an affordable option, this high quality holiday home could be the perfect match for you. Not to say that you couldn’t fit a small family inside as the home comes with a master and twin bedroom, albeit just a bit more cosy inside. At an affordable price of £25,000 which includes delivery, siting and connection this holiday home comes at a small price in return of making special memories in the countryside.

willerby-rio-2017-02

The Willbery Rio is finished in an environmental green complete with double glazed windows. The overall feel of the space is modern and surprisingly spacious for a smaller holiday home by using bright colours such as whites, beiges and light wooden textures to make this space appear bigger to the eye. You can easily add a splash of colour to the interior with your choice of accessories. Personally, neutral colours with textured tactile materials for cushions, rugs and blankets would transform this space into a toasty cubby. Houseplants are a must have to bring a burst of energy, life and colour into any interior too. The Willerby Rio can be your perfect place to escape with comfort of a gas fire.

willerby-rio-2017-03

The living, dining and kitchen spaces come with plenty storage (even in the footstool!) so you can cook in your holiday home just as you would at home. The Willerby Rio comes with an installed oven, hob, and extractor fan so you can get started straight away as soon as you make your first trip.

Bedrooms come with wardrobe and overhead storage for all your holiday attire. You can get just as many belongings in this 10ft holiday home than a 12ft size. Why not give these rooms their own character and accessorise to make each room individual.

If you think that the Willerby Rio is for you then feel free to contact us, we can organise a viewing that is best for you on Millbrook Caravan Park. In the meantime head over to the Willbery website here, where you can discover a 360 degree photoshoot and download their brochure with more information.

50 Years of Millbrook

 

We always looked forward to our summer holiday back in the mists of time- the 1950’s. For us then there was no jetting out to far flung resorts in foreign climes, but a drive to Endmoor, Cumbria to stay with our grandparents at Brook House. Of course it was always sunny and warm, or maybe we were looking back through rose tinted spectacles? We did things much like visitors of Millbrook do today, played games on the grassland and spent many happy hours picnicking in the Lake District. We fished from the bridge with the promise of a sixpence from our Grandpa if we caught a fish, however he knew his money would be safe as he told us the best bait was brown bread! We would peep through the big white gate at the end of the road, beyond the gate was forbidden territory. This was where the men and women of the Civil Defence came to train for disaster relief, finding casualties in collapsed buildings. Exciting stuff, happy days!

In 1968 Civil Defence was stood down and the land at Endmoor reverted back to our family. The options from the council of how the land could be used were limited but included use of a caravan site, so this is what our parents decided to do and they were granted licence in 1969. Millbrook Caravan Park was born.


Early development was not easy, the site had to be cleared of derelict buildings that had collapsed for the Civil Defence training. The old buildings were the remains of Low Gatebeck gunpowder works founded by W H Wakefield in 1850. There had been horse drawn tramways, waterwheels and a mill race, evidence of which can still be seen in the south woodland today.

The caravan park was laid out and our parents spent weekends and holidays working hard to develop the site. We served our apprenticeship; digging, wheeling barrow loads of gravel and cutting and raking grass. Most of the work was done by our parents, machinery only hired for the very heavy work. Eventually the park was opened but at that same time there were no water or sewage pipes to the caravans. Heat and light were from the gas bottles and water was carried from the stand pipes. We all remember the anticipation when lighting the gas mantles, they went with a pop and hiss. We had the oldest caravan on the site and we hated it! But it was all that we could afford, no posh new caravans for us. When Linda married Rodney, and later Barry to Glynis we welcomed two new members to the Millbrook road gang making a 6 bodied team.

Over the years Millbrook slowly developed, water sewage and electricity were made available to each site. The original small nissen huts which housed the gents and ladies toilets were remodelled, the central nissen originally a tool store now became our reception and shop. After our Dad passed away in 2004 the responsibility fell to us to take on the business and as partners we have continued to care for Millbrook with the continued involvement of our Mum.

In recent years, after storm Desmond in 2015 we were faced with flooding; Peasy Beck had never been known to overflow as it did that day. Thankfully, although we had flood damage, we did not suffer as badly as many in the area, but there were problems to rectify and measures to be taken to minimise any damage should the worst happen again. Fingers are firmly crossed every time there is a storm, after all who can predict the bipolar weather of the Lakes.

Each passing year brings new challenges, not all physical or material. There have been enormous changes to legislation since we first opened those 50 years ago; health and safety, data protection and VAT to name a few. We always do our best to ensure all our clients have protection to which they are entitled.

DSC_2065

As we look around the site today our minds often go back to those early days, and we are proud of what our family has achieved and grateful for the efforts of all our wardens who have been with us over the years. I know Dad would be pleased with how Millbrook has developed. When our children and grandchildren come to visit we know they love it as much as we do, and will be giving the grandchildren lessons in wheelbarrow technique and mower handling just in case!
