Booking Enquiry


Two gypsy bowtop wagons, the Ruby and the Famous Five are settled on separate meadows in the stunning Somerset countryside. Somerset is famous for cider making and Glastonbury Festival. Close by the gypsy caravans is the mystical town of Glastonbury.

Each sleep 2 plus a child, but have a separate additional accommodation to supplement which can sleep an additional 2 guests. Therefore up to 5 guests are welcome on each site, or more if a tent is added.

Ruby, a bowtop which has been lovingly been restored is nestled in the tranquility of a wild flower meadow. Ruby's only neighbours are sheep, Boris the donkey and ponies. This authentic wagon with oil lamp lighting sleeps 2 adults in a double bed and a young child underneath. Cooking can be done outside on the campfire but if preferred, a more modern method 'Swallow', a refurbished vintage caravan with hob, oven, fridge, sink and heating. The Swallow also provides additional accommodation for guests and if that isn't enough a tent can be used. The private bathroom is located in a bespoke cabin adjacent to Swallow.

Located in a separate, secluded orchard in a very private spot, is the Famous Five caravan once used in the TV series of Enid Blyton's Famous Five Go Off in a Caravan. This is a beautiful Romany wagon. The handpainted interior as with Ruby, sleeps 2 adults in a cosy, traditional double bed with room for a small child also. There is hot running water and a shower in a shepherd's hut with additional accommodation and cooking facilities found in a vintage caravan on the same orchard.

Bed linen, utensils, cutlery and crockery are provided.

Children welcome, no dogs unless by special arrangements.

Available for short stays, weekends and long holidays. Price for 2 adults per night is £80 (Friday and Saturday must be booked together). A price for hiring both gypsy wagons together, please contact owners.

Open from Easter until beginning of October.
