Check Availability


Having already featured on George Clarke's Amazing Spaces, this 1950's caravan called the Warwick Knight is extremely rare and the only renovated one in the world with a fantastic roof garden. It is located on a small, family-friendly site in the heart of the Severn Vale and with views across the orchards.

The Warwick Knight is the perfect glamping experience for couples or families of 4. During the loving restoration a unique roof garden has been added, which is perfect to relax on a hot summer day. The hand-crafted interior is cosy and welcoming, with a warming woodburner, plenty of living space, a double bed, two cosy bunk bed pods and lots of natural lighting. The roof top is a perfect spot for stargazing at night and the relaxing experience in and outside the caravan is enhanced by luxury soft furnishings, plush duvets and the highest standard décor. The kitchen is spacious and equipped with a gas cooker, hob and grill, fridge, sink, cooking utensils, pots, pans, crockery and cutlery, coffee, tea, milk...

There is also a fire pit outside the caravan which can be used as a BBQ and all necessary tools are provided. There is a private wood-fired shower and sink cabin only 25 metres away and the private compost toilet is adjacent to the caravan.

If needed, a travel cot can easily be fit in next to the double bed.

There is a second accommodation called Belle, a cosy Bell Tent which is also extremely popular with guests. Up to 5 people can sleep here under cotton canvas without the stress of traditional camping. The tent measures 3m in height and 5m diameter, has a double bed with comfortable mattress and luxurious bed linen. Pillows are provided for two single futon beds and an extra bed or cot can be added, and to add to the warmth and the welcoming atmosphere there is a woodburning stove.

Belle has a fire pit outside which can also be used as a BBQ and all tools are provided. The private kitchen is fully equipped as well and the private bathroom with wood-fired shower and compost toilet is only a short walk from the tent.

Both accommodations have picturesque views over beautiful countryside and are only a short walk from the River Severn. The Warwick Knight and Belle are the perfect starting points for long walks and to explore the wildlife and the nearby orchards in a truly family-friendly environment, with children and parents being able to meet the friendly farm animals as well.

Historic Gloucester is only 5 miles from here, and equally easy to reach are Berkeley and Berkeley Castle, Cheltenham Spa as the cultural centre of the Cotswolds, the charming green town of Frampton on Severn with its impressive Tudor and Georgian architecture, the market town of Cirencester and many others.

For the Warwick Knight, prices start from £95-£145 per night. There is usually a two night minimum stay, 3 on weekends at peak times.

For Belle, prices start from £70-£125 per night. There is usually a 2 night minimum stay, at peak times 3 nights on weekends and 4 nights during the week.

Belle also welcomes dogs for a small additional charge of £25, and £35 for two. It has a secure area where dogs can roam freely and provides dog bowls and a waterproof bed. Belle is not available in winter.

Groups of up to 9 people can book the two accommodations together.
