Bainland Lodge Retreats Celebrates Rebrand
Bainland Lodge Retreats celebrates rebranding with new website launch and the continued expansion of its luxury lodge offering, unveiling romantic treehouse “The Nest” and luxurious family-friendly “The Orchard” as well as announcing three new opulent over-water lodges set to open in the winter.
The Orchard is a sumptuous four-bedroom lodge with a west-facing private garden ideal for families, groups and pets. It includes a generous decked terrace that features two outdoor hot tubs and Bainland Lodge Retreats’ signature fire pit, perfect for cooking on or just for enjoying the big night skies. Interior designer Karen Robson has created warm and rich interiors with velvety rust and garden green hues as reminders of an orchard in autumn. Bedrooms feature rippled ‘Cornelia’ velvet headboards by Osborne & Little, to evoke gnarled bark, while plaid wool chairs woven by the British designer Moon Wool, reference traditional picnic blankets. The Orchard Lodge was designed to be enjoyed, from the fully-equipped luxury kitchen with Le Creuset crockery, the eight-seater farmhouse dining table, 32” smart TVs in every room, free and fast WiFi, to the video arcade and space enough in the garden for family games of five aside football.
The Nest is Bainland Lodge Retreats’ first treehouse-style lodge and is a cosy retreat for couples looking for a romantic escape. Elevated within a canopy of trees, The Nest features a decked terrace with an al fresco hot tub and lakeside views, the perfect vantage point from which to spot the coming and goings of wildfowl attracted to Bainland’s 45 acre estate, and the inspiration for Bainland’s new logo. The motif of flying geese also represents the abundance of wildlife in the park and their landing represents a welcome place for guests. A redesign of the Bainland Lodge Retreats’ website has also been completed to better reflect its new vision of a luxury retreat in the heart of Lincolnshire.
A summer of new additions to Bainland Lodge Retreats
The two new lodges are not the only additions to Bainland Lodge Retreats, with goats, hens and rescue llamas are among its newest residents, while a mini Land Rover track offers instructor-led adventures for younger guests. The Main Lodge is being upgraded and a new on-site deli and pantry, The Stores, has opened supplying everything needed for that barbecue, while The Copper Goose Bar & Bistro, set to open this summer, will offer casual all-day dining and take-away meals.
It is all part of Bainland’s conscious upgrade, which has been several years in the making. Under the guidance of Chelsea Flower Show gold-medal winning landscape designer, Jody Lidgard, the 45-acre country park is undertaking an ambitious reforestation and rewilding programme to plant over 1,500 trees and has implemented a no-mow policy to encourage wildflowers.
Careful consideration has long been given to the environment at Bainland Lodge Retreats. The perimeter is made up of gabion walls using locally sourced rocks, providing a low impact boundary solution that also reduces noise. The villas and lodges are also afforded privacy by the creation of buns – hillocks that have been made from material dug out when creating the lakes – and now seeded with wildflowers and poppies. The newest lodges use reclaimed timber, pools are heated with energy-efficient air sourced heat pumps, and Bainland has just introduced a food delivery service with a fleet of electric carts. The park also offers three certified wild swimming lakes, with six more lakes planned for the future.
Over-water lodges, yoga platforms and monsoon showers
Bainland’s plans do not stop there. This winter will see three new over-water lodges, two four-bedroom lodges and one six-bedroom, launched with everything friends and families need for a luxury stay, and designer Karen Robson will be on board again to create a fresh nautical style where East Coast USA meets East Coast UK. Stand out features will include generous planting surrounding over the water terraces and a yoga platform for al fresco asanas as well as privacy for monsoon showers and sunken hot tubs. Owner Simon Craddock explains;
"We were recently congratulated for our ‘amazing reinvention’ of a former holiday park. In truth we have been working really hard for quite a number of years to elevate our lodges and protect our park and it feels like it is all coming together."
