A completely self contained and private space in which to unwind. Quality vintage bed linen, towels and gowns are provided, as are basic ingredients for home cooking, garlic, herbs etc. Organic produce from the vegetable garden are available when there is a glut.
This is a unique opportunity to stay in our vintage showman's van set in mature gardens. It is a self contained open plan space consisting of a large double bed, a dining and sitting area, and a fully equipped kitchen with gas oven. The loo with hand wash basin and towel are in a separate hut beside the caravan. There is an outside cast iron bath in a secluded area nearby, heated with a wood burner. A supply of firewood is provided. There is a wood burning stove in the caravan, and we will ensure a good supply of dry firewood for your use. However, those wishing to use the bath more than once will have to gather their own firewood. You can of course bring your own wood supply if you prefer.
Linen sheets, fluffy towels and bathrobes are provided. Fresh breakfast food is supplied. Requests for special dietary needs can be met if forewarned.
There is ample parking space next to the caravan.
There is a radio and ( rather patchy) internet connection but no television.
The caravan is situated in the garden at some distance from the house. The outdoor bath facilities are arranged behind a deep mature beech hedge. Guests are welcome to use the garden.
Interaction with guests
There when needed but privacy guaranteed.
Other things to note
Minimum 2 nights stay. Guests can book 1 night stays midweek, if they are happy to bring their own sheets/sleeping bags and towels.
I would ask guests to recycle their bottles, plastic, and food waste into the bins provided.
Arrival time is flexible as many guests come from a considerable distance, and traffic can be a problem. But please let me know more or less what time you hope to arrive. If there is no new booking on the day you leave, feel free to enjoy a leisurely breakfast before your departure.
I would appreciate guests leaving the caravan clean and tidy, and that the recycling bins are used for plastic/glass etc.
Only one definite rule - absolutely NO candles, or any other naked flames inside the caravan.
This is a tranquil place where you can escape the hurly burly of city life, so we hope you come to enjoy the peace and quiet.
We really appreciate guests leaving a message in the visitors book and coming over to say goodbye.
Well behaved dogs welcome.I would appreciate dog owners picking up and disposing of their dog mess as it happens! Please bring dog beds and prevent them getting up on the bed or divan.
Children are free, but extra adults must pay an added premium of £35
