This converted showman’s carriage ticks all the boxes for a romantic walking trip in the glorious Sussex countryside. Sleeping two humans and two beloved dogs, this luxurious property offers a remarkable place to come back and rest after a long day of fetching sticks and chasing rabbits. Take in the remarkable High Weald scenery from your covered veranda, enjoying an al fresco meal or glass of wine whilst your dogs bask in the last glimmers of evening sunlight.

 

Unique throughout, this compact glamping property has been decorated with a frivolous and luxurious aesthetic, combining antique furniture, vintage tiles and a stunning feature ceiling to make for a truly charismatic home. In the morning, you can take breakfast in the kitchen, enjoying far-reaching country views whilst planning walking routes for the day ahead. On an evening, unwind on the covered veranda or in the cosy lounge room, letting your pampered pups curl up lovingly at your feet, before retiring to the comfy double bed. No doubt excited to explore every inch of the surrounding gardens, your well-behaved bow-wows can sniff out adventure in the apple orchards and seemingly endless farmland.

 

Located in the heart of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this home boasts an abundance of unforgettable dog walking routes nearby. Enjoy the 1-mile country walk to the village of Bodiam, made famous by its impressive medieval castle. Fido and Rover are welcome into the grounds of this English Heritage site, so be sure to take in the wonders of this 14th-century fortress. Hounds hungry to learn will also enjoy a trip to nearby Hastings (11.5 miles), a town steeped in fascinating British history.

Lovely quirky place to stay. We have two medium size dogs and it was a squeeze so ideal for one or two small dogs. Nice walks and a pub within walking distance.

June 2023. Vintage showman's wagon 1864, very comfortable and very ornate. Fabulous scenery. Massive deck with huge hand made oak table and leather chairs. Separate shower room/toilet and kitchen. 9 days of eating, drinking, playing games and taking our two Norfolks for walks. We just let the world go by and loved it. John the owner very friendly.

What a great place to stay! Views are amazing and plenty of walks for us and the dogs. Loved the blanket and chews for the dogs. Everything very clean and welcoming. Ideal for visiting Hastings, Battle and Bodiam, including the local pubs that do great food. Will definitely visit again.
