The space
We are pleased to offer our beautiful handmade gypsy caravan, 'Bluebell', for your stay during the Hay-on-Wye Literary Festival, made using the best and sustainable materials including organic Indian cotton fabrics and is originally handpainted and gold leafed. A four birth bunk situated at the far end sleeps two on top, and a pull out double bed on the lower bunk accommodates a further two, and adorned with designer, cotton bedding.
Bespoke internal furniture includes bench seating with underseat storage plus further seating and a table. There is a coat cupboard and a
kitted out kitchen area. Equipped with a 12 volt battery, they supply good lighting and there is access to electric power points close by.

Guest access
The gypsy caravan is situated on the beautiful private land of Racquety Farm, a Soil Association certified organic farm.
The facilities include private onsite parking (very useful at Hay), showers and lovingly made compost loos, plus
kitchen and recycling points in the orchard and paddock. There is also an onsite breakfast bar.
The festival is approximately a 20 minute walk away or a 5 minute walk to the shuttle bus for a 5 minute drive.

I have been a practicing artist and am curious and keen on the arts. I am also interested in writing, reading, spending time on my narrow boat. Love camping, music, festivals and spending time with my family. I am a general lover of culture especially theatre and film. It's the little things in life that make me happy... electric pepper grinders and orange retro wallpaper!
