CUSTOMER REVIEWS
  • "Had a very cosy time round the wonderfully warm stove. Very atmospheric in the evening with the lights glowing in the beautiful cut glass mirrors and windows. Felt like we were in fairy land." Fey & Chris from Pembrokeshire July 1, 2014 15:19
  • "The caravan is an amazing piece of British design and is a joy to stay in, very comfortable, cosy and totally unique. You would struggle to find a more "bling" place to stay anywhere else in Shropshire!! The location is gorgeous and very quiet and the views are superb, an ideal spot to take it easy for a few days. We will definitely be going back" ~ Ben and Kirsty July 1, 2014 15:18

INFORMATION

Officially one of the most eccentric places to stay in Britain! Extra photos here of this amazing 'palace on wheels!'. Vickers Waggons are the pinnacle of British caravan design - and made exclusively for gypsy families in the 1950s>1970s. The quality and standard of the fittings is so high they originally cost much more than most people's houses. This splendid restored example, reflecting the best of 1950s streamline design, is smothered in mirrors, cut glass, chrome or stainless steel - you'll probably never see another interior as spectacular as this. Forget cramped Airstreams, this is the way to enjoy a truly unique holiday, and with views like this over some beautiful Shropshire parkland, you won't want to go home. You even have access to a private lake and rowing boat! A simple, modern shower cabin sits alongside with modern conveniences. The caravan is snug and warm all year round with a new and highly efficient wood-burning stove. 4* guest review.

Caravan - positioned to take advantage of the sun and views.

  • New, efficient Stovax wood-burning stove (and electric heaters) - you'll never be cold here!

  • Simple kitchen area with fridge, microwave (combined oven grill) and toaster.

Cabin - Outside there is a small, modern cabin that has a proper flushing toilet, kitchen sink (hot water) and good modern shower. Spotlessly clean.
