Spend one night or a few in our retired travelling van, cosied up with the wood-burner lit or door wide open to enjoy the view in the summer. Sit on the stoop to watch the chickens go to the neighbours barn for their breakfast, make a cup of tea on the gas stove, and enjoy the peace + quiet of life without electricity. Facilities are basic here but the stars are very bright!

Loved the quirkiness of this accommodation. The people (including neighbours) were friendly and Molly the lovely cross husky was one of our highlights. Cooking in the van was easy and the little wood burning stove was ideal and kept the van cosy at night. We loved it.

Staying here is like camping in a metal tent with a log burning stove that keeps you cosy and warm when the weather is damp or cool. I stayed for 3 nights, enjoyed the peace and quiet, explored the coastline with its rocky coves and sleepy fishing villages. This is the place to s…

This was a fantastic stay! It is a van that has been converted into a camper, so there is a bed, a small kitchenette with a propane stove, and a wood stove for heat (so cute!). They also provide a jug of spring water for drinking. Just outside the van is the neighbor's field fill…
