The space
“Leroy” is a cosy and well designed holiday home. Full of retro style with vintage and up-cycled furnishings that give it a colourful twist. Every detail has been hand selected and restored. From the 60’s kitchen units to the collection of music covers on the walls.
Head room is limited 6ft.
BEDS – Onboard there is one fixed comfy king size bed with wardrobe and storage. Two single bunks ( limited length max 5' 6") Each bed has USB charge points and reading lights there is 240 volt electrics throughout. So you don’t have to leave your straighteners at home!
LOUNGE- The lounge has a comfortable seating area with music system, lamp and side table for chilling out. There’s no getting away from the fact that you are on a bus as most of the original bus fittings have been saved and restored.
KITCHEN- There is a self catering vintage kitchen with cooker, fridge, microwave. Fresh milk, tea, coffee and washing up liquid are at hand when you arrive. Free range eggs can be purchased on site from our hens.
There is an Alphabet fold away dining table stored for your use.
BATHROOM – There are fabulous extras inside the bus with a private bathroom with small shower, sink, and cassette type toilet. (Please be aware we may need to empty this during your stay) The whole package makes a fun and quirky place to spend your holiday.
OUTSIDE – Private garden area overlooking the canal banks, firepit, table and chairs. So you can relax and enjoy the views.
Being a small eco space hot water supply is limited. The water heater boils 7 litres per 15 min. So no long power showers.
“Leroy” is a 1996 Bluebird All American RE Diesel, made in Fort Valley, Georgia. He was a rusty heap when we found him in Cardiff in 2017. Over the last two years we have restored him to his former glory. Lots of welding, rust, leaks and painting later…. Leroy is now looking awesome and we want to share all his vintage details with our guests. The AMAZING thing about building a tiny home on wheels is that you get to build your absolute dream home, with all the fixtures and fittings you’ve always desired and we think this makes our Bus very unique!

Where you’ll be

West Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom

Parked in beautiful canal side surroundings “Leroy” is a perfect place to stay while you explore the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
Just a short walk from the boatyard we have a small canal side café. The Five Rise Locks café serves a variety of food and is open regular times and is run by a local Bingley family.
In the town center there are lots of restaurants and bars. From Indian and Italian to good old traditional British. A couple of our favourite pubs are The Brown Cow and The Potting Shed.

During your stay

“Leroy” is located at Hainsworths Heritage boatyard, situated above the Five Rise Locks on the canal side. It is a short walk up hill from both Crossflatts or Bingley train stations. It's in a residential area and not in the center of the town. There is usually a member of staff on site at all times and there are security cameras in use. You can contact us in person on site or by phone as we are never very far away.
The canal business has been based at Hainsworths boatyard for generations. We still run the site as a family business where we continue to work on boats and canal barges among other vehicles. There may be some work noise during the day. There are also other boat residents living on site and we ask you resect there privacy. Noisy parties are not allowed and will be asked to leave if they become a nuisance.
