Wartime Couples at Glamping Thorpe

wartime glamping vehicles
Fancy going back in time? 2 WWII restored army trailers for couples or small group of 6. On farmland in Banbury
Oxfordshire, England

Check Availability

Set in a grass field Wartime Couples at Glamping Thorpe are 2 unique trailers to rent. The 1940's WWII Home Guard Trailer and the East German Cold Ward Comms Trailer have been lovingly restored by the owner and are possibly the only ones remaining in the UK. Just 4 miles from the M11 Glamping Thorpe is situated on farmland and is the perfect rural retreat to take you back in time for a unique place to stay.

Both trailers have a comfy double bed, sofa (which can sleep a 3rd person), oil lamps which have been converted to LED, cool box, gas stove, log burner and retro decorations taking you back to wartime Britain. The field has stunning views, its own tin composting loo and own shower room inside a 70's horse trailer. The German Comms trailer has a switch box to turn on various lights and buzzers to create an ambiance, inside and out.

Outside you will share your field with a flock of sheep but don't worry they won't bite! There is a fire pit and you can bring your own BBQ, but if you prefer there is a great pub just across the field which provides delicious home cooked food everyday.

Next door is Glamping Thorpe which is a field hired out to groups who may want to host their own mini festival/party or just to get away from it all. Please bear this in mind when booking as noise can carry.

Priced at £90 a night for 2. 2 night minimum stay. Sorry no dogs. The site can be booked for a maximum of a small group of 6 or 2 individual couples.
