THE GRAIN SILO , APRIL 2017

The silo is situated in a secluded position by a wildlife pond. It is furnished inside with a double bed, a large leather settee, bedside tables and quirky lighting. There is your own matching kitchen diner with everythiing you will need to prepare and cook meals.

Plus your own BBQ firepit swingseating and picnic bench. The kitchen can be heated by the chimenea on chilly evenings. This popular glamping cabin is available from £55 per night for a couple , rising to £65 for seasonal prices. 2 nights minimum.

From today we have increased our advertising and we can be contacted through the hopefully high profile Go Glamping site!

We are getting ready for our first visitors in the Bow Top this Easter weekend. I am having fun painting pictures on the front panels.

Phil is fitting solar panel lighting. Lots to do while waiting for the leaves to grow in the woodland!

We started building the glamping Silo way back in October 2016, we bought it after buying it at an auction from a nearby farm. It’s getting quite exciting now as we have the finishing touches to do before we open in June 2017. Phil calls them the fiddly bits!!

Dismantling it was amazing, with the help from a friends JCB to lift off the roof. Then thee were hundreds of bolts to undo, with Me on the nut side and Phil on the bolt side. You may think that was tough going, but we had them all to do again when we started to put it back together back on home ground. There were some precarious moments when undoing the roof with flapping sheets of metal waving about as we took it apart!

Phil had a small winch crane which we used to put up the the first couple of rounds of sheets, but we soon found that neither the height of the crane or our determined efforts were not going to enable us to make this a double story structure. Our first thoughts were to make two rooms joined with a door or tunnel, but the end result is a unique separate kitchen diner. It is quite quaint and works out ‘just the job’!

The interior of the silo is like a funished circular spacious hotel room with a double bed, cupboards and a large leather settee that you can curl up in. Lining the  ceiling was a work of art, Phil became a mistro, in fact genius springs to mind!! And he was determined to have a circle cut out for the skylight window too!

There was a lot of painting to do after lining the walls and reclaimed windows and doors for extra light. The silo also has its own solar panel so Phil can add his quirky mood lighting…. after visiting a place which sells replica vintage car lights!!
It is located in its own private setting by a wild life pond, there will be a chimenea, (must order one) picnic table and a BBQ… or will it be a pitza oven?

The Gypsy Caravan

Seen from above this is your round hut kitchen area  next to the gypsy wagon. Plenty of  space for you to enjoy the outdoors, but somewhere to shelter from the rain or the sun.

Around the back of the wagon you will find your own shower and toilet tucked away.

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.

HOW TO LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE AS A MOTHER AND WIFE WITHOUT FEAR! I can only describe my self seven years ago as broken. I left a bad marriage with crazy debt, two suitcases and a four year old. I didn't know who I was, where I fit in the world and where to start building a life for myself and my family. I went on a long, somewhat detoured at times, journey. I gathered information all over the internet from recipes to Self-help, read my heart out and here I am now wanting to share my experiences and knowledge base with you...my extended family. WE GOT THIS!!!
