Designed and built by me and my sons, this Tiny House Trailer overlooks the River Wreake and the grazing pastures beyond. It has a long double bunk bed with a generous single bed beneath. It has a tiny woodburner ,12 volt lighting plus phone charging point. Composting toilet just outside, plus a conventional toilet and shower 2 minutes away. Camping kitchen available 10 metres away. You are welcome to use our canoes on the river during your stay. Very basic but fun. There is now a swing seat.

Location

Brooksby, United Kingdom

Our valley is in an Area of Particularly Attractive Countryside, with pretty little villages dotted along it. Lots of tall hedges, welcoming pubs, cattle grazing, lovely walks. We are about 2 miles from the nearest small shops, and 3 miles from the nearest supermarket.
The nearest pub is the Blue Bell in Hoby ( 1 mile), which serves excellent meals and has a lovely outdoor area looking out over the valley towards our house.
There is a great delicatessen and cafe 2 miles away in Thrussington which makes a good target for a nice long walk along by the river.
Leicester is a vibrant, happy, multi cultural city with many facets, and we can recommend some brilliant places to eat there.

Hi, we are John and Carole from Brooksby in Leicestershire in the very middle of England. We have 4 children and three grandchildren. We live by a quiet river, and love hosting visitors in our two home built cabins. We first discovered Airbnb has guests in Corfu, and have since been Airbnb guests in Paris, Turin and Hay on Wye. John runs canoe building holidays here. You may well see canoe building going on during your stay.

During your stay
One of us is generally around at the house ( a Grade 2 listed Victorian Railway station), but we will generally leave you to yourself unless you need anything
I will be encouraging you to make suggestions. All around you are examples of adaptations we have made as a result of suggestions from guests; the latest is a swing seat and small decking area at the front of the Trailer facing the river.
I speak French and German if that helps
