Developer reveals name of new Keynsham estate - Hygge Park

November 30 2018

A developer building more than 260 homes off the Bath Road on Keynsham’s eastern edge has revealed the estate’s new name – and it’s got a distinctly Scandinavian ring.

A number of homes have now been pre-released for sale at Crest Nicholson’s Hygge Park, a name the developer says has been inspired by Danish living.

A spokesperson said: “Hygge Park has been aptly named with the Danish concept of comfort and wellbeing in mind, with the homes expertly designed to suit a modern lifestyle. The open-living layouts encourage free movement between the generous kitchen, dining and living areas and large windows promote a light and airy feel to the homes.”

There has been a great deal of interest in “hygge” in recent years with many books purporting to teach us all how to embrace the concept – but perhaps more pressing is how to pronounce it. The various lifestyle bibles seem to agree it’s “hoo-gah”.
