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.

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 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.

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

Not far from the wagon is a shower in a horsebox! The shower is hot and continuos. An experience not to be missed. Seeing is believing!

There is also a composting toilet in a garden shed close by.

  • We had a great nights stay in the gypsy caravan. A beautiful view and a very unique experience. The shower unit is great too :-)

  • Really nice place to stay! The local pub on the beach has excellent food.

  • We really enjoyed our two nights in Elle. It's an amazing and unique little wagon. We warmed up some food on the little stove inside and then toasted marshmallows! It's an amazing setting, with cows that come right up to the fence and you can hear the sea at night! The local pub the Five Pilchards is about a 10 minute walk away and does fantastic food.

    Would definitely recommend this if you are looking for somewhere a little different to stay.

  • La roulotte est très belle, le séjour à l'intérieur plaisant pour une nuit.
    Attention la taille du lit à l'intérieur n'est pas conçue pour les très grands. Pour les sanitaires ça laissait à désirer, une caravane où il y avait des toilettes propres.Mais pour la douche qui ne fonctionnait pas dans la caravane, il fallait se rendre dans un pré plus haut où se trouvait des sanitaires. GPS à jour obligatoire pour trouver.Un peu cher pour la prestation et l'accueil un peu léger.

  • What a fun place to stay! Jonathan has been imaginative and inventive in making or preparing his variety of holiday residences, from tree house to teepee. We reckon we had the best deal however with the gypsy caravan and sixties caravan duo, side-by-side in their idyllic meadow, separate from the site-proper. The use of the non-flush loo and horse-box shower were novel; the walk down through the fields and woods to supper in the local in overlooking the cove was magical. Not recommended however to anyone who requires all mod cons.

  • Stayed here for 1 night and only regret we hadn't booked for longer. Very peaceful and quiet. With only the cows next door for company!

  • We loved staying at Elle The Gypsy Caravan.
    Small but comfortable and quirky, lush bedding and the additional space nearby made it everything we had looked forward to.
    An idlic setting (email hidden) Cornish Valley and a beautiful walk through a magical forest to the local beach and pub. An absolutely charming weekend. Thank you!

  • Jonathan's Gypsy Wagon is gorgeous, as is the horse box that is the shower room. It is all definitely worth a visit as it really is unigue and located in a beautiful area of Cornwall. Fat Apples is also worth a mention, it is a great place to have breakfast and is only up the road.

  • Elle the Gypsy Wagon, its decor, its location and surrounding are just magic!
    Cornwall is an amazing place and being in a wagon is definitely a way to embrace even closer its beauty and peacefulness.
    The wagon is small but perfectly snug, the fairy lights and the small decoration touches make this place a unique boudoir.
    There is another caravan that comes with the rental of Elle, which has kitchen facilities, toilets and space to lounge.
    The shower is on another part of the site and unfortunately the hot water didn't work, but even with this little drawback, the magic remains!

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.
