On the theme of romantic breaks and all things lovely, we thought we would bring to your attention our unmistakable and rather delightful Hope Gypsy Wagon. This is one of the abodes we offer for anyone wanting to go on a luxury camping break in the heart of the South West countryside.
A Brief History of Our Little Wagon – ‘Hope’
This simply stunning glamping accommodation is an original 1927 bow top wagon that, once upon a time, was used by families to travel the countryside, and now she’s with us helping to spread the glamping love, and as she is so popular she never fails to disappoint. If you’re after a holiday with character and charm and the feeling of being taken back in time then Hope is the one for you.
Located in a quint meadow at a Retreat Centre, Hope has been affectionately refurbished by local artisans and artists by using hand printed fabric and artwork. Hope offers guests a frank and unassuming escape from the daily grind with her appeal of being purposely kept off-grid. Moody soft lighting emits from candles and a wind-up gramophone to provide music, conjuring a captivating sense of simpler days gone by.
Come Look Inside Hope and See What She’s Got
Hope is described as a pocket-sized labyrinth of discovery. Complete with beautiful furnishings, carefully selected decorative touches and beautiful hidden treats. You are of course encouraged to explore the nooks & cupboards at your leisure.
Enjoy Hope’s Surroundings
Simplicity rules when you’re staying with Hope. Relax by the campfire for cooking some lunch or dinner and then gaze up at the stars as the night draws in. If you love a morning brew there’s a storm kettle for boiling water, and a rather welcome comfy chair to kick back in and enjoy the lush greenery of the open field that surrounds you.
For some the facilities will come as a new experience, but it’s definitely something you should try at least once. The bathroom facilities associated with your stay in Hope are simple & off grid, comprising of a compost loo situated roughly 20 meters away from the wagon. You might not have a flushing loo but you can still have a lovely hot shower in the rustic hut located behind the wagon.
If you’re used to hotel stays then Hope has a little treat for you- she has her own mini bar inside, but you won’t get the extortionate hotel charges for anything you use, instead there’s quite simply an honesty box so that you can decide on how much or little you would like to pay for anything you’ve indulged in.
In true country living style you can enjoy a spot of herb picking when you stay in Hope, which is free to do, and this will no doubt add some extra flavour to whatever it is you decide to cook- complete with added satisfaction that you picked the fresh herbs yourself.
If you forget your supplies, or just can’t be bothered to pack them (you’re on holiday after all), you can get yourself a breakfast hamper with local and where possible organic goodies,
and dinner for 2 with seasonal local ingredients ready to heat on campfire for an added cost.
The question is, what are you waiting for? Hope is ready and waiting to make your glamping experience an unforgettable one, come see what she has to offer for yourself, you won’t regret it…
