This lovingly refurbished 1980s vintage showman's van presents quirky accommodation in a peaceful rural location, perfect for enjoying a romantic getaway for two.

Located in the charming Sussex village of Bodiam, this unique 1980s showman’s van enjoys a rural setting. Cosy and compact, it sleeps two in one bedroom and welcomes your four-legged friend too. Surrounded by spectacular countryside views, it offers the perfect romantic escape for a couple and their canine companion. With an abundance of footpaths and countryside walks straight from the front door, both you and your hound will soon fall in love with this peaceful location.

You will access this unique property by a wooden ramp, into a warm and welcoming living area, the perfect space for unwinding after a long walk. While you cosy up on the armchairs, Fido will snooze at your feet, dreaming of the day’s adventures. Cook up a storm in the kitchen area and enjoy a romantic meal together, just the two of you and Fido. Remember to pack your canine’s bed and favourite blankets so that he feels at home, too. An additional utility area offers handy space for storing coats, boots and dog leads. End the day by watching the sunset from the covered veranda.

The caravan was quirky and comfortable. Location is terrific and The Hub is sensational- great coffee, cocktails and bacon sarnies. John suggested some great pubs for food and there are so many beautiful places to visit in the area.

The weather was terrible, but the caravan was comfortable and peaceful. The verandah was ideal- we sat outside even when it was raining. This is a beautiful part of Sussex, with lots to see and do.

Great views from The Lady Jane with the castle to view every day. The gardens are well kept with plenty of walks. Only found one local pub The Castle which was walkable but there were others around. The bed was awkward as it was enclosed by 3 side so had to clamber over my wife if I needed to get up.For us we would have liked better pillows. OutsidRead moree a couple of fold up sun beds would have been useful so we could sit out in the gardens. A shop selling bread, milk, bacon etc and a newspaper needed Hide

The van was beautiful, there was a full size fridge freezer (not as the description) which was great. Very retro and in an amazing location and our two Norfolk Terriers loved it. The original double-bed was comfortable, but one-side is against the wall! There are lots of original features but mod-cons like electricity and central heating. The amaziRead moreng veranda looks across to the Castle and there is loads of room. It was very clean, dog friendly and Farmer John is lovely, try his cider !! Hide

The accommodation was a camper van but it was too small for two dogs. The view was amazing. There was a pub nearby (15 min walk) but also a cafe on the site that served sandwiches and breakfast. It was a good location to travel around East Sussex.

I stayed in the showmans traveller van and it exceeded all expectations. It looked quirky in the pictures, it was wonderfully comfortable and full of charm and style in real life. Lots of attention to detail. At first I thought the bed might be a touch too small but it was perfect and incredibly comfy. I had two lovely nights sleep. It was a treat Read moreto spend time reading outside the property on the beautiful wooden terrace, taking in the view of rolling hills and orchards, and the lovely garden. Hide
