    We had a very peaceful week which is what we wanted. Saw various wildlife including a small Fox, 4 Badgers(Take your own peanuts for them) and even had a baby Wren sat in the doorway. The wagon itself is a lovely place to stay and sleep came so easily with the country air. Cannot praise John enough for the work he has done in restoring the wagon...must have been a labour of love ! We will definitely hoping to stay again in this wagon or one of the others he has restored. I only put 5 for amenities as there only seems to be a small cart in the village, one of the residents was selling eggs there. The pub in the next village has closed and its a few miles to the next one and village shop.
