Stay in a 1947 Showman's Living wagon (Molly) on our small holding with our sheep, Alpaca, Shetland ponies, bees and chickens. Walk down the lane or along the foot paths, then you can relax in the hot tub before retiring to the cozy living van bed.

House Rules

Molly our Showman's Living van is very old so we would expect her to be treated with care and respect. We do not allow smoking in or near the living van i.e outside the door or on our property. We have a plastic carpet protector on the floor which we are happy to remove if you are also happy to remove your shoes. We and our neighbors along with our animals would not appreciate loud rowdy behavior. Other than that we would encourage you to have fun and relax in a lovely home and outdoor setting.

We spent the most magical weekend here with our children (5 and 7 years). The wagon is immaculate and beautiful inside - a totally unique experience. Outside, the grounds are lovely, with animals close enough to pet. My children were still talking about Teddy the pony all the way…

Wow, what an amazing weekend we had! Jill and Michael were so friendly and welcoming. It wouldn't surprise me if they also had something to do with the great weather (they seemed to get everything perfect). The beds were comfy, facilities good, and the cooked breakfast was a …

We also had a nice weekend you were all lovely guests and we felt very relaxed with you all. Your help finding the queen bee is very much appreciated you did what we and other guests have tried to do all summer without success so well done and thank you for your help. We hope you enjoyed our local 1940's fete also. Thanks for another wonderful review. Michael and Jill.

Michael and Jill were brilliant hosts, they gave us really good information about how to get there and couldn't have been more welcoming. We loved the wagon and bathing in the shepherd's lookout was just a whole new experience. It was really warm and atmospheric and felt like a…

Thank you so much Karen for staying with us and for another lovely review, we are so pleased. You took the words right out of our mouths when you said "We didn't really do it justice though and would love to get back another time" Yes please come back but make sure you have more time to enjoy what we and the surrounding area has to offer. We may have to cut off will's feet though so he fits in the wagon a bit better:-)

We were warmly welcomed by both Jill and Michael. They gave us the grand tour of the gardens and then led us round to the Showman's Van. the setting was idyllic and even in the rainy weather was a delight. The sheep and lambs welcomed us too and my children enjoyed feeding the la…

Sam, thank you for your lovely revue. We hope you have more time when you come again to enjoy the animals and surroundings. You could have used the washing line or if we had thought about it when it rained the tumble dyer so thank you for your constructive comments, we will learn from them and point that out to future guests. We are also in the process of putting together a booklet for the wagon giving its history and other information. Hope to hear from you soon. Michael and Jill.

After looking for the perfect location for a fashion shoot we found it at Micheal and Jill's. Very helpful through the booking process and replied to messages swiftly. When we arrived at the farm we were welcomed by the happy couple and their array of farm animals. The location …
