VISITORS to Cheshire West may soon be able to stay in a luxurious log cabin, complete with hot tub.
A planning application has been submitted to Cheshire West and Chester Council for the construction of eight holiday lodges on land off the A54 Chester Road in Little Budworth.
The lodges, which are designed by Winsford-based Beaver Log Cabins, will offer three bedrooms, open-plan living space – including a kitchen, dining and living room – and outdoor seating on a back veranda.
In a design and access statement, prepared on behalf of the applicants, he says: âCovid-era restrictions on the global travel industry are encouraging increasing numbers of Britons to spend their holidays in the UK.
âThis growing demand in the national holiday market creates opportunities for the provision of overnight accommodation to visitors.
âOne of these opportunities is the proposed development of eight luxury holiday lodges near Tarporley.
“The proposed development would benefit the economy of Cheshire West while complementing the extensive tourist accommodation that exists in the area.”
Each log cabin has a master bedroom with en-suite toilet and bath, and two smaller double bedrooms with a shared shower and toilet.
This design aims to meet the needs of a wide range of users, from families with children of both sexes to three couples.
The claim says the borough attracts around 25 million visitors a year, worth Â£ 1.2 billion to the local economy and that this development would provide accommodation close to several nearby attractions.
The design and access statement added: âThe app site is conveniently located on the A54 to provide visitors of all ages with a plethora of experiences.
âIt’s very close to Oulton Park with its calendar of Formula 3 racing, sedans and superbikes.
âOulton Park also offers the option for people to hire a supervised racing or rally car. Other local attractions nearby include hot air balloon rides, microlight flights and horseback riding.
For young families there is the Crocky Trail Adventure Playground, Blakemere Village and Snugbury’s Ice Cream.
âFor couples, there is fine dining at Nunsmere Hall, a trip to the Weetwood Brewery and Distillery or a day of golf or spa at the Portal Hotel in Tarporley.
