  • Fabulous 1970s Canadian school bus nestling in an idyllic rural Devon location close to the Somerset and Dorset borders
  • Lovingly presented and equipped to provide relaxed living in an authentically retro and rustic space
  • Perfectly placed just a short drive to the ever-popular Jurassic Coast and the coastal towns of Seaton and Lyme Regis
Property code: 82585

This retro school bus has been lovingly presented in a rustic and eclectic style, and now nestles in a secluded spot on a family-run farm adjacent to a vineyard, providing a relaxing off-grid couple's retreat.

Escape the everyday and enjoy a romantic retreat in this surprisingly inviting bus conversion! Bursting at the seams with character and rustic charm, start your day with a cup of tea in the driver’s seat before adventuring your way around the South West coast. Surrounded by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you simply must bring your four-pawed third wheel along to enjoy the quirks and charm of this eclectic home.

Sitting in a secluded glade, embrace off-grid living in this fun, 1970s converted Canadian school bus. Board the bus and marvel at the cleverly designed space which is open plan and warmed by a wood burner- a treat for toes and tails. Brew a mug of tea and curl up on the cushioned seat to lap up the heat and prepare for a delicious dinner. Though compact, the kitchen area has all you need to feed three hungry tums throughout your stay and with a BBQ for summer feasts, you can treat your pup to sizzled tit bits. Enjoy a date-night dinner at the table or throw a log on the firepit and dine alfresco. The cool box will keep your tipples chilled so you can raise a glass to bus-living. Get cosy under the covers and drift off in the double bed amid retro features and original fittings. Freshen up in the small shower room and make the most of having an off-road parking space.

Before tucking into a tasty portion of fish and chips, enjoy a beach day on the pebble at Seaton Beach (4 miles) which welcomes dogs in certain areas all year round. Take a trip to the Jurassic Coast Visitor Centre to find out more about the fantastic World Heritage Coast before embarking on fossil-hunting adventures along the shore. Visit the Castlewood Vineyard for a fun date night beneath Musbury Castle (1.5 miles).

You are staying on a converted bus which is off the grid with only USB charging capability. If you get your head around that you can certainly enjoy your stay here. There is only one small sofa to sit on so for those wet nights you may have to be creative with space for the all night card games.

Would highly recommend the Bluebird Bus to anyone looking for a quirky place to stay for a few nights. If you're looking for peace and quiet, away from the crowds, this is the place to go but it's also close enough to civilisation that you don't feel isolated.

We actually loved this Retro bus very much, quiet and great views. Right up our street as we have lived on a Narrowboat in the past, so love quirky out of the way places.
