The Space

Elle is a traditional Romany Bow Top Window and Door style Gypsy Caravan. Built on an original dray with traditional gun carriage wheels. Built for a Romany by a Romany and taken to Appleby Horse Fair by its previous owner three years ago. Sleeps two. Our minimum weekend break is two nights.

There is an original "Queenie" stove that the gypsies used for heating and cooking. We supply the first fire full of charcoal.

Outside there is a charcoal burning fire pit where you can light a fire, and sit and gaze at the stars.
Cook marshmallows,
And watch the sunset over the Lizard Peninsular.

Elle is available for long or short breaks.

Adjacent to the Bow Top wagon is a traditional caravan with further facilities, that include:

A bed for the over six foot traveller
A cooker, fridge, table and seating.
A flushing toilet. Sorry no wet wipes!

Both wagons have electricity and electric or gas heating.
Bedding and towels are included
Electricity, water and gas are included.
Your first bag of charcoal is included

Not far from the wagon is a shower in a horse-box! The shower is hot and continuos. An experience not to be missed. Seeing is believing! The shower facilities are shared with other travellers.

There is also a composting toilet near the horse box shower.

July and August. We have a minimum of two nights for bookings during July and August over the weekends.
Our minimum weekend break is two nights, and three over bank holidays.
All other nights can be booked individually

A gypsy poem

Pawnie birks
My men-engni shall be;
Yackors my dudes
Like ruppeney shine:
Atch meery chi!
Ma jal away:
Perhaps I may not dick tute
Kek komi.

Interaction with Guests

The Neighborhood

All within a 25 minute walk or less.
There are some great pubs and restaurants close by. We recommend the Five Pilchards for lunch and evening meals. We also recommend Fat Apples Cafe for breakfast and lunch. There are a large number of other eating places that we can recommend when you are here.
Discover the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall
Well known for its quiet, unspoilt fishing villages, secluded coves and stunning coastal scenery, the Lizard is the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday break.
The area offers a fantastic selection of restaurants and pubs, inspiring craft shops and galleries and a great range of outdoor activities, including coastal walking, sailing, surfing, cycling, golf, diving and horse riding.
We are within a few minutes walk of the Cornish Costal Path.
Our landscape is criss crossed with many more beautiful public footpaths taking you to stone circles and ancient monuments and much more.

Getting Around

Public transport is to St. Keverne. This is non existent on Sundays. To travel here by train and bus, will bring you to St. Keverne. From St. Keverne we are one mile along a public footpath.
If you come by public transport, take a train to Camborne, and bus to Helston, for ease of travel it could be recommended that you take a taxi from Helston to our door!
We are almost as far south west as you can travel without going into the sea!
An area of unspoilt natural beauty.

Other Things to Note

We have a total of 4 exciting and fairytale units that we let. A treehouse another gypsy wagon and Jack Sparrow House that has been on television.

Your Host



England, United Kingdom · Member since March 2012

I live on the Lizard peninsular, as I find this area one of the most inspirational in the UK. I am an artist/builder who creates spaces of light and beauty. My aim is to welcome you into a dwelling for your pleasure and relaxation. I enjoy using ideas of times passed and endeavor to achieve an ‘other worldliness’ in my work.
I spend my time in constant contemplation of the next project in mind. Other than that you can find me enjoying music and dance, or Cornish coastal walking with my partner and dog.
