From the moment we arrived I felt an incredible feeling of homeliness and peace and welcome. This feeling stayed with me. We were met by beautiful old Holly (springer) who became a firm friend and Lorraine, the owner, who had made us bread pudding. The wagon took our breath away. It is amazing. That and the open fire pit were enough for me! But then Lorraine showed us the chalet behind the wagon which contains all the essential things for the not so hardy campers (like my wife) enabling all to enjoy the best of both worlds. The sun broke through and I spent a couple of hours on the wagon steps soaking up the tranquility. We cooked sausages over the fire, watching the sunset whilst drinking ale from a tin mug. Perfect. A beautiful clear night sky emerged and the temperature dipped sharply. No problem, we simply headed inside the wagon and lit the Queenie stove and got snuggly by its heat. The bed was very cosy and we both slept well. I'm 6ft and 18 stone but there was room for two!
Come the morning, we enjoyed a tasty breakfast in the chalet where Lorraine had provided everything needed for a chilled out breakfast.
We so enjoyed our stay although too short! I would recommend this to anyone. Get there and live the Romany Dream. You will love it.
Ps Holly likes sausages for dinner and a bit of egg on toast for breakfast!!
