Description

This is luxury camping for all seasons in magical accommodation. Where every little thing can be provided for you.

The Traditional Wagons are nestled into a small valley, in about an acre of gardens, adjacent to Wriggles Brook. With farm land on one side and wild hillside on the other.

Wriggles Brook Wildlife

The wildlife is abundant and you may be lucky enough to see such creatures as Otter, Fox, Kingfisher, Peregrine, Sparrowhawk, Buzzards and many more. There are bird tables adjacent to each Wagon providing treats for Blue-Tits, Nut Hatches and other feathered customers.

The peacefulness of the valley provides a safe haven for human creatures too.

The Open Lot is built on a dray which is about 100 years old. The front is covered by canvas doors the top and sides insulated with felt. The Showmans was built in 1910 and has recently been completely restored and reburnished.

There is electricity to the Wagons, with outside and inside lights, power points, a kettle and an electric radiator.

For Those Colder Nights the original Queenie coal burning Stoves and the Showmans larger Valet stove will keep you toastie in tempertures down to -10°C.

In the cute cupboards you will find all the things you need to make hot drinks, you will alsoShowmans Bed find an assortment of trays with legs and padded bottoms, so you can eat your Breakfast in bed if you want to.

The Bowtop wagons sleeps a cosy twosome. Whilst the Showmans can also accomodate up to 2 children in a seperate double bed especially created to be fun for smaller people.

The bed will be made up with Satin bedding on a merino sheep's wool duvet and duck down pillows. The Bowtop beds are slightly smaller than a standard double so those of you over 6' 2'' may not be able to lie out flat and therefore may prefer to book the Showmans with it's standard double bed.

If you want, the Bowtop beds can easily be pushed back into a comfy sofa in the day time. Whilst the bigger Showmans has a seperate lounge area.

There is as much fresh air, peace, quiet and views as you can soak up and if you are lucky a Kingfisher or two may flash past.

On old mill stones there are places to light camp fires to keep you warm and also to toast marshmallows. Gypsy Wagon Camp FireThere is a table and chairs with candles, if you want to dine alfresco. Slung between two Brookside trees you will find a hammock big enough for 2.

Beside the wagon you will find all the fire lighting materials and coal for the inside stoves and logs for the outside fire. There is also a Stew Pot and A flat Gypsy griddle pan so, if you choose, you can cook over your outside fire too.
The Cabin facilities

Between the Wagons you will find the leaded window cabin. Behind the window boxes there are 2 large hot showers with fluffy towels provided and a heated towel rail, a washbasin, a fridge with your Organic milk and where you can chill your own drinks etc. There is even a kitchen sink. All this is centrally heated for the winter.

You will also find available, some Wildlife and Local Interest books and Maps, for you to borrow. during your stay. Biodegradable Aloe Vera Shampoo, Conditioner and Shower gel are here for you to use during your stay, we save some of the water for the vegetables you'll see around and about.... so you really don't have to bring anything except some tooth paste and a tooth brush!

Oh and there is also a hair drier behind the curtain, under the hand basin.
