Center Parcs has unveiled a design for a new style of accommodation being introduced next year.

Waterside Lodges will give families who stay in this accommodation picturesque lake views, as well as a prime location in the heart of the 400-acre forest. The three Waterside Lodges will start to be built this autumn and are due for completion in summer 2018.

Nestled in the heart of Elveden Forest, the lodges will complement the landscape and connect families with surrounding nature. Known for being a prime destination for nature spotting, guests will have a greater opportunity to get up close and personal with the aquatic wildlife on their doorstep.

Inside the Waterside Lodges, a nautical-meets-Scandi design flows through the interior. With three bedrooms (two double and one single) upstairs, complete with en-suites and two rooms offering rustic balconies overlooking the water. Downstairs a fully-equipped kitchen sits alongside an open-plan living space with dining table, corner sofa and flat screen TV, while wide bi-fold doors give guests access to a luxurious outdoor hot tub.

Martin Dalby, the company's CEO, said: “We are very excited about this new style of accommodation which will be right in the heart of Elveden Forest. I believe the combination of the forest environment, coupled with the lake view, will help families switch off from the busy pace of everyday life, to connect with each other, nature and the wildlife around them.”

With more than 90% of guests spending time on or around the lake during their short break, it is expected that guests will embrace the opportunity to stay right on the edge of the lake, amongst the woodland and water wildlife. In addition to the three Waterside Lodges, Elveden Forest will offer 51 new Waterfront Apartments, which are also due to be completed in the summer.

These newly built apartments will offer a mix of self-catering and standard rooms whilst nearby, nine new three-bedroom Executive Lodges will also be nestled between the lake and the Village Square.
