***Any day arrival - Min 3-night stay***
A romantic Gypsy caravan holiday in the Dorset countryside ~ 'Hope' is an original 1927 bow top wagon who many years ago was used by families to travel the countryside. Fortunately for us she is now available to transport us back in time.
Located in a small meadow at a Retreat Center she has been lovingly refurbished by local artisans and artists using hand printed fabric and artwork. A genuine escape from the madding crowd she has purposely been kept off-grid ... soft lighting emits from candles evoking an enchanting sense of days gone by.

Simplicity rules here, a campfire for cooking, storm kettle for boiling water, a sideboard and rather welcome comfy chair... there is something quite delicious about being able to sit in a really comfortable chair in the middle of a field! There is also an outside seating area, as well as a hammock for you to laze in while reading a good book or listening to birdsong - bliss!
Bathroom facilities are simple & off grid, the compost loo is about 20 meters to the left of the wagon (next to, but not shared with, the Shepherd's hut loo). A rustic hut 20 meters behind the wagon has a hot shower and hand basin (shared with 2 other abodes).
