Our beautiful barrel top wagon is set in it's own private woodland glade with ample parking. It is light, airy and comfortable, perfect for a quiet escape with wildlife on the doorstep. It is eco friendly with a compost loo, reed bed water filtration system and cosy wood burner. Good for two couples or a family with two children. Well behaved dogs are welcome. There is no TV or internet and the phone signal is sporadic. (Visitors are welcome to use host's landline in an emergency).

The space
The wagon is a local craftsman built, beautiful wooden structure. It has a mazzanine double bed and the table folds down to provide a second double bed. It's cosy and colourful, has a good gas cooker with four rings, grill and oven, there is also a proper shower inside the wagon. There is a very efficient, easy to use, wood burning stove which keeps the well insulated wagon very warm and cosy in cooler weather. The compost loo is outside, is hygeinic and a pleasure to use and it has an outside sink for hand washing (or dog washing!).
If you are lucky you may spot a deer in the early morning, come to graze in the open area surrounding the wagon. There is woodland and a wild field to roam in where orchids and other wild flowers bloom and wildlife abounds.

Where you’ll be

Bondleigh, England, United Kingdom

We are in a less touristy part of Devon which is very agricultural. We are in striking distance of Exmoor and Dartmoor. The Tarka trail is nearby, as well as other lovely places to walk. Okehampton has an interesting Mott and Bailey castle. Hatherleigh has a weekly produce market. Winkleigh has a good village shop, post office and two good pubs, also a monthly produce market. Iddesleigh has a good pub which was where Michael Morpugo's 'Warhorse' story oginated and the warhorse museum is nearby.
The RHS garden Rosemoor is just our side of Torrington.

We are a retired farmer and nurse who have a little retirement project in our wildlife rich woodland glade. We love to garden, walk and play tennis. We are blessed to live in a lovely part of the country and like to take advantage of our coastlines and moors. We try to encourage wildlife and wild flowers by gardening in a rather wild and relaxed way. We hope our guests will feel equally relaxed, enjoy being a little cut off from the outside world and embrace the farming activities and stock in the surrounding fields. Good local produce is important to us; what we can't grow we like to buy from local producers of whom there are a good variety.
