Compton Dundon, Somerset, England
Stay in a beautiful, fully restored, gypsy bow top wagon in rural Somerset and sample a lifestyle almost lost to the modern world.
Tucked away in the tranquillity of the beautiful Somerset countryside, at the end of a no-through lane, you will find your gypsy caravan with its beautiful Romany interior nestled in the lush surroundings of an old cider apple orchard. This is so much more than a holiday cottage………Sit on the caravan steps in the evening savouring your break while watching the embers of the fire fade with the end of the day. Enjoy the timeless peace of the surroundings or visit some of the many fascinating, beautiful and historic places this part of Somerset has to offer. It’s perfect for couples who want a romantic break together or families looking for an exclusive ‘cool camping’ getaway.
Our ponies, donkey, chickens, sheep,...
