About this listing
The blue wagon is in the garden of a beautiful thatched cottage beneath the Marlborough Downs. It has a comfy pull-out double bed and bedding, cooking facilities and an outside fire bowl/barbecue and picnic table. The bathroom is in the house.
The gypsy wagon is a tiny,perfect space in which to spend some quality time. It sits in its own spot in an English country garden at the foot of the North Wessex Downs, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Polly, who runs horse-drawn gypsy wagon holidays, lives in and works from the cottage and welcomes wagon guests and their dogs. She has three small dogs and a cat and there are sometimes horses in the garden!
The wagon and its surroundings are your space, the garden is sometimes shared with two other wagons which people taking horse drawn holidays use and with the family (Polly, the dogs Bobbin, Button and Maudie, the cat Bumble and sometimes the horses Ned and Blackthorn).
Interaction with guests
Usually Polly or Jezz will be available to greet you, but sometimes we just let you get on with it! We are usually available to answer questions and point the way to great walks, pubs, shopping and sights, such as Avebury and Stonehenge.
The wagon is 6 miles from Avebury stone circle and 16 miles from Stonehenge. It is at the epicentre of crop circle activity and there are lots of quiet lanes for walking, riding and cycling. It is situated at the foot of the North Wessex Downs, one of the best preserved chalk downlands left in the world, in spring and summer a wonderful world of flowers!
There is an occasional bus to Alton Priors, but you will be much happier with a car or a bike!
