Gypsy wagon
Gypsy wagon

Dating back to circa 1883, our traditional Travelling Showman’s Wagon is a cosy retreat for two.  This type of horse drawn wagon, sometimes also known as a ‘Burton’ was originally used as living accommodation by fairground people. Inside there is a small double bed (6’3″ x 3’7″) with a foam mattress.

Families can now book the wagon, and use the bell tent positioned nearby for older children. Please contact us to book this option.


£65 per night for the wagon, plus £5 per additional child or teen sleeping in the bell tent, up to a maximum of three children.

We provide a mattress protector and fitted sheet but please bring your own pillows and duvet/sleeping bag.  There is a woodburning stove with a kettle and a battery powered lantern. Outside there is a table and two chairs and a firebowl with a grill for cooking over the fire. N.B.  Access to the wagon is via steep steps and a small door but inside there is ample headroom. Access to the bed is via a two-step stool. The bed is 6'3" x 3'7".

You also have access to all the shared facilities.

Please note that only certified biodegradable shampoo and shower gel (e.g. Faith In Nature or Lush) is suitable for use in the shower – this is available in travel-size bottles on-site.

Group bookings: Groups of friends or families with up to 6 adults (plus children) are very welcome to book.  We are such a small site and we hope this helps to create a peaceful and friendly atmosphere for all our guests. If your group is larger than this then we are able to offer exclusive hire of the orchard, please contact us for more details.

Is there anything I can't bring?

Sorry, we can't accommodate pets.

What can I buy on the farm?

Firewood and kindling, organic apple juice from our orchard and zero-waste apple juice ice lollies.
