about the property

Traditional Circus Showman’s waggon on the West Wales coast, making a quirky Welsh coastal holiday home for memorable holidays near Llangrannog and Penbryn beaches of Cardigan Bay.

Everyone loves this fabulous little showman's waggon on the West Wales coast!

  • The Guardian - " 'coolest' place to stay in West Wales"
  • The Independent - Top 50 UK Cottages - best 'Romantic Hideaway'
  • 'The Guardian' - Top 10 Winter Glamping breaks

Quirky, original, and only 6 or 7 minutes drive from two of the best beaches in Britain! This is a 'Circus Living Waggon', tastefully restored by her owners and lavishly furnished….ideal for a secluded romantic getaway for two.' The Guardian named her No.1 in their list of cool places to stay in West Wales!

In the grounds of an old farmhouse, a couple of miles from the sea, this is the sweetest little holiday hideaway. Sleeping 2, the cheerfully-decorated carriage is oak panelled, with seperate sleeping and living quarters, a small kitchen, and a private bathroom in the adjacent shepherd's hut. Beyond a private garden are 8 acres of grounds,and there are great beaches nearby.'

She was one of just three identical wagons built in 1946, half timbered with leaded light bays. Originally home to acrobats she was later the living van of a clairvoyant...these days you can experience the magic of this very special place to stay. See our photo abum here

Absolutely loved Dolly. Beutifully restored and extremely well finished in every detail. Spent much more time staying in our accommodation than we would have normally. We didn’t want to leave her behind! Julia and Bethany (Lancashire)

I love Dolly! She’s very soothing. Wonderful surroundings too. Very calming. Ideal for anyone wanting to get away from it all…..I will definitely be back! Thanks Huw Kay (Haverfordwest)
