10 lodges will open this autumn at MDL Marinas' Woolverstone Park near Ipswich and promise a taste of the outdoors with a touch of luxury
Bespoke lodges offering luxury getaways are to be launched at MDL Marinas’ Woolverstone Park in Ipswich this autumn.
The development is part of MDL’s plans to make its network of marinas more appealing to sailors and non sailors alike.
Woolverstone Marina provides plenty of sailing opportunities, hosting 235 berths, boatyard facilities and an on-site chandlery.
Yacht charters are also available.
For those wanting to learn to sail, there is an RYA accredited sailing school on site offering both sailboat and powerboat courses
The marina is part of 22 acres of parkland on the River Orwell, providing plenty of opportunities to explore the great British countryside.
MDL said the new lodges are individually designed “to offer an exclusive experience”.
Each of the Clover Lodges has a clean, modern aesthetic and open plan living space. They can sleep up to four guests and include a woodland balcony and an outdoor hot tub.
Fern and Willow Lodges can also accommodate up to four guests and feature spacious living and dining areas, as well as modern luxuries such as free Wifi, multi-channel TV and the latest appliances.
