    Fabulous holiday in a perfect setting! The wagon is perfectly equipped for everything we needed, and more! Location was so peaceful and great for walks from the door. Although smack bang in the country its only a short drive to more civilisation and lovely towns. Will come again!

    The showmans wagon was a wonderful, peaceful place to stay. The wildlife was great especially the badgers and bird life. John was friendly and informative and the wagon was perfect for all our needs.
