Sleep like a gypsy

How do things like this come about? Well, it's simple, really. Owner, Jonathan, is an artist, and he dances. Each year he holds an Argentine tango party. As some of his friends travel from all over the world, he decided to purchase and restore a traditional Bow Top Gypsy wagon to help with the limited accommodation on the farm in Cornwall, UK. It was such a success with Jonathan's friends, that he restored another and his friends spurred him on to let out these cosy and comfortable caravans for their holidays.

Now anyone can come and experience the magic of a Romany Gypsy Lifestyle, in the enchanting orchards and fields of Tregaminion, Cornwall, with far-reaching views over Falmouth Bay and open countryside.

These two romantic caravans - Bow Top Elle and Bow Top Rosie - sleeping two in each, are ideally placed near an idyllic, unspoilt coastline, and available all year for long or short on-site breaks.

Elle is a traditional Bow Top Window and Door style. Built on an original dray with traditional gun carriage wheels. Built for a Romany by a Romany and taken to Appleby Horse Fair by its previous owner three years ago. 

Rosie is a traditional Open Lot Bow Top, with canvas door. Built on an original dray with gun carriage wheels. Built by a Romany Gypsy last year.  .

There is a footpath close by that leads down to the local beach, "Porthallow" less than a mile and about ten minutes walk across the fields. Porthallow has a popular local pub on the beach. The footpath also leads in the opposite direction to St Keverne, a larger village about a mile away. There you'll discover a 9th century church, post office, general store, newsagent, butchers, garage and two local pubs.

At night, enjoy the peace and quiet of this secluded location and fall asleep to the rustling of leaves in the trees. You might find you don't want to leave.
