Your kitchen in built inside a small horse box. There is a two ring burner and a kitchen sink. Space for you to prepare meals and eat inside should it rain.

 

The HOOPLA tent sleeps two, it has a double bed and side tables with reading lamps.

There is a small sofa and we have added a huge leather chair for you to curl up in!

Close by is the outdoor space where you have privacy to enjoy some time to chill out. Here you can swing on the double swing seat , enjoy morning coffee on the raised decking or prepare a meal in the quirky horse box retro kitchen. In the evening you can build a campfire, create a romantic atmosphere with flickering tea lights and drink a glass of wine. Enjoy the peace and quiet and watch out for shooting stars!

You may wander around the numerous woodland pathways and sit by a secluded pond. The wildlife here is abundant. Hear owls hoot and wake to a dawn chorus. You may spot a tiny blue or red damselfly or the larger beautiful green dragonfly. Guests often use our binoculars to spot bird life. Buzzards fly overhead, green finches, the robin and the wren are just a few regulars.

The first of our fairground hook-a-duck stalls arrived in the autumn of 2017. Without instructions on how to put it together! The problem solving process took all afternoon.

 

Bought in October. It was then dismantled and put away until next season.

Where it all began….. 

Phil refurbished the outside of the caravan adding new cladding and paint work. When the weather warms up I am hoping to find time to add some pretty decorative painted flora and fauna too.

This is an outdoor camping experience. There is a small BBQ , and small fires are allowed. But for those who don’t want to cook there are some very good restaurants nearby, including two that do breakfasts.

 

Time to refurbish!

Phil has faced up the back and front of the wagon, replaced the door and added an opening window in the back. Looking good.
