New Oaks Farm Lodges, a Boutique Lodges park were delighted to win the 2017 Diamond Award – Lodge Escapes, Lodges and Parks in Britain (small park category) for Devon, Somerset & Dorset at the recent Hoseasons Owners Conference.
Boutique Lodges, a unique franchise opportunity for landowners to create their very own holiday lodge park following tried and tested methodology, provide individual, high quality holiday accommodation and service levels to holiday makers in the UK. As the first Boutique Lodges Park, New Oaks Farm Lodges were delighted to accept the award which celebrates exceptional quality and outstanding customer service – qualities deeply rooted in the Boutique Lodges philosophy.
Set on a working farm in the beautiful Somerset countryside, just a 20-minute drive from Glastonbury, New Oaks Farm Lodges is the ideal touring base to explore this beautiful corner of the country. The famous Wookey Hole Caves, historic Wells and Cheddar Gorge are all within a 30-minute drive and the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is just beyond.
As a park in development, New Oaks Farm Lodges currently consists of four well-appointed Omar luxury lodges with stunning countryside views and private hot tubs. A further two lodges are planned to complete the small exclusive development.
The luxury lodges accommodate up to four people and consist of one double bedroom with en-suite, a twin bedroom, family bathroom and a spacious open-plan living area with lounge, dining and kitchen areas. French doors then lead out onto a private patio area where a hot tub and an outside seating area with wonderful views can be found.
In-line with the Boutique Lodges philosophy to provide individuality, quality and exceptional service levels, the owners, Gary and Laura, have added their own personal touches to the visitor experience, such as tours of the farm and providing meals. These personal touches alongside the care and attention paid to every aspect of the accommodation and overall experience have already led to fantastic reviews, recommendations and repeat bookings.
Richard Sigsworth, Franchise Director commented: “I’m delighted that New Oaks Farm Lodges have won this award, it’s very well deserved. Laura and Gary have put a huge amount of hard work into the venture and it’s great to see it pay off. The award is also testimony of the Boutique Lodges franchise model. Watch this space as more parks are due to come on board over the following year.”
Laura Walker, Owner of New Oaks Farm Lodges commented: “We were thrilled to win the award and would like to thank Richard and the team at Boutique Lodges for all the help and support we have received. Becoming a Boutique Lodges park has been a fantastic decision for us, we didn’t have any experience in lodge park development and the idea initially was daunting; it’s certainly paid off an we’re now reaping the benefits!”
