Wow and I thought Thorpe had tight planning permissions :o

But it does look pretty good tbh. If they actually turn out like those picture then it'll be a great addition to the park.

Looks brilliant IMO

Hoping the final result looks as nice as those pictures, this appears to be a fantastic place to stay over at in towers and a great alternative to the other hotels.

Definitely more excited by this than CBeebies land (:o)

Fantastic concept art. I hope the final outcome will be as interesting and detailed as the pictures show.

So the hobbit houses are a no-go? Have I missed something....? I thought they resubmitted those plans?

They didn't resubmit them, they altered them. There's still lodge houses (less of them), but then there's also the treehouses.

The lodges do seem less Hobbit-like though.

Probably cheaper to build 'proper' buildings really...

Not too fussed over the 'normal' lodge building over hobbit holes tbh...

On Alton Towers snapchat they have been putting pictures of a preview building of the Enchanted Village thats opening next year. I will put pictures up later if I have time. I don't think anyone else has said about this yet, I can't see it anywhere.

Looks a wee bit cramped, though probably no more than the normal hotel rooms are to be fair to it...

 

S'ok, but nothing special tbh...

Please note - the lodge at the Theme Park is a sneak preview of the finished lodges, we don't want to give away all of the surprises just yet....

Not bad, not bad at all

Can't say I'm blown away by it, but then this only the showcase version. Looks rather simplistic ATM, but hopefully we'll see ore details when they're actually finished.

They're missing a couple of items. Other than that, they're pretty much complete. 

 

These were meant to be entry level (so cheaper than Splash) when planned so don't expect the earth - but in my personal view they're better than Splash!

Thought I saw some construction pics of this pop up on my facebook the other day but can't seem to see them now, did I imagine it or has anyone else seen any progress?

 

Also, competition here to stay in the Enchanted Village when it opens.

Have you been to centre parcs? It's not like that. If it was going to be like a centre parcs that would be great, especially if it included a worthwhile pool complex rather than splash, but it isn't. 

 

That pic shows how crammed in these will be compared to the feeling of solitude you get in a Centre Parcs villa. Coupled with the lack of amenities being developed alongside the accommodation, I don't really get what they are trying to achieve. It seems to fall somewhere between a hotel and a CP resort, and I can see it ending up with the advantages of neither.

Plus Center Parcs is great because you ride your bike everywhere and the sites are huge, whereas this will be small, compact, and you could walk the distance in a few minutes! I think I'd rather visit the AT Hotel again than stay in a lodge, they look so small!

Construction update from TowersStreet

I like the little quirky design bits like the roof, but them all being so close to each other and being identical it takes away from it a little bit, hopefully they will appear more individual somehow when they are complete.

Looks average to me, and they are a bit close together.

Also, they look absolutely nothing like the concept art (although I know they aren't finished yet).

 

They are exactly the same as the show lodge in the park though.
