This creatively restored 1950s caravan set on the hillside of a farm deep in the Devon countryside is a gem in itself and the icing on the cake is the Landrover converted into an out-door hot-tub. The hot-tub might not be a time-machine but the decor and styling of the caravan screams of nostalgia.
The ‘Penthouse’ caravan was rescued from dereliction and lovingly restored to its current minty fresh style. For vintage and retro-loving geeks, there are many delightful touches – not least the skylight window created from a pyrex dish.
With a surprisingly large interior and an even more surprisingly luxurious bathroom, it’s a unique, quirky but also comfy experience staying in the caravan for a night or more. I stayed here with a girlfriend for a couple of nights during November. The hot-tub couldn’t have been more perfect – though it was an undoubtedly chilly dash from the caravan, across the deck to climb aboard!! At night, surrounded by the kind of darkness you only get deep in the countryside, the lights on the hot-tub were hilariously wonderful. Quite the disco for 2!!
