Whether you’ve got a big family or you’re just looking for a value for money the Willerby Salsa Eco could be spot on for you – especially if you’re a fan of all things eco-friendly.
Basically, this review will tell you allabout the environmentally-friendly features, while trying to give an idea of what it’d be like to own the Salsa Eco for yourself. And if you have any questions that aren’t covered, ask away in the comments.
But if you fancy doing your own review in-person, the lovely team on-park will gladly
So, let’s have a little nosey around…
How roomy is a Willerby Salsa Eco?
There’s a reason why it’s a best seller – thanks to the open plan layout, it flows really well from one room into another.
The kids have plenty of room to play, and it’s ideal for bigger families, which is why a lot of people choose it as an upgrade after their first static caravan.
The Salsa Eco is 35ft long and 12ft wide, and the Salsa Eco ‘super’ is 37ft by 12ft.
The ‘L’ shape sofa wraps around the living room too, which gives you that added bit of space and it means all the family can spread out with their feet up.
But don’t think all that space gets rid of the cosiness!, With double glazing, warm air heating and a feature fireplace with a chimney breast in the living room it’s easy to heat up.
If you choose the storage box option, available on either size model, you get a 12ft by 2ft unit built into the back of the caravan. Some owners use it to store their bbq or table and chairs in there – it’s massive, but you wouldn’t even know it was there!
What about the kitchen?
For me, good food is at the heart of a good home!
So, the kitchen’s super important to me. And I loved the stylish galley kitchen straightaway – withmodern wood unitsthat come with feature handles, a four burner cooker with separate grill, free-standing fridge, and room for a microwave.
And that’s not all – pots, pans, a kettle, etc are all supplied as standard too.
So all you need to do is move in, get the kettle on and start feeling at home straightaway (just add your own TV, some towels and bed sheets).
There’s also a fixed ‘dinette area’ –an eating area with fixed seating, so if you don’t like chairs being left out after dinner, then this is your perfect solution.
And as the kitchen’s open plan, there’s plenty of room to get those recipe books out and spread your ingredients out, without getting in anybody’s way.
Onto the bedrooms…
i’m one of those people who loves getting up first thing, and letting the sunshine in – so the fact that the main bedroom comes with two windows is a dream.
And not only that, but there’s also two double wardrobes with an en-suite toliet. The best thing, though, is there’s loads of room to move around the bed, which you wouldn’t think of in a caravan – but it’s a decent size, so you have plenty of space for getting ready.
The twin bedrooms also have a good amount of room, and storage. There’s lots of hanging space, plus floating shelves Which are perfect for making it homely with personal touches.
And if you have a couple of last-minute guests arrive, you can always use the pull-out bed in the living room – taking you from a 6 or 8 sleeper caravan (depending on whether you’ve got the 2 or 3 bedroom model) to an 8 or 10 sleeper!
And what about the bathroom?
The main things I like to hear when i’m looking at bathrooms, is ‘warm’ and ‘spacious’. So the Salsa ‘Eco’ didn’t disappoint with a roomy bathroom thatcomes with a shower, and my personal fave- the heated towel rail.
There’s literally nothing better than getting out the shower and throwing a warm towel round you!There’s also that extra toliet in the en suite, so there’s no panic if someone needs the bathroom while you’re in the shower.
What features does the Willerby Salsa Eco come with?
– Kingspan wall, floor and heating insulation to keep you toasty, while helping with energy saving
– TV unit in the lounge area with shelving for all your favourite DVDs
– Integral iPod speakers and docking, so you can dance round the lounge!
– Coat cupboard/ full-height storage
– Contemporary furniture to give you that ‘brand new’ feeling to move into, while being homely at the same time
All of the eco-friendly features will save you money, and it’s a lovely static caravan for those looking to sub-let as well.
There’s enough room for kids to play, and teenagers to have their own space. And at the end of the day, the spacious living room is warm and inviting for bringing everyone together.
