Gypsy Caravan Breaks – have a relaxing glamping holiday near Glastonbury, Somerset
In a beautiful, fully restored, gypsy bow top wagon and sample a lifestyle almost lost to the modern world.
If you are looking for some peace and tranquillity away from your normal life , then staying with us is the answer. Tucked away in the heart of the beautiful Somerset countryside, at the end of a no-through lane but entirely separate from one another, you will find either The Famous Five gypsy caravan or Ruby nestled in the lush surroundings of an old cider apple orchard and wild flower meadow. Close to the towns of Glastonbury and Street yet a million miles away.
Sit on the caravan steps in the evening savouring the moment while watching the embers of the fire fade with the end of the day. Maybe you’d like to relax inside your wagon with its detailed Romany interior contemplating the wonders of life…..
Enjoy the timeless peace of the surroundings or visit some of the many fascinating, beautiful and historic places this part of Somerset has to offer. It’s perfect for couples who want a romantic break together or families looking for an exclusive getaway.
Prices are based on two people staying and start from as little as £84 per night. Both Ruby and The Famous Five. Both wagons however can accommodate more in the adjacent vintage caravans. See our booking and prices page for more details. Our ponies, chickens, cat and of course Crumble our dog will give you a warm welcome!
If your party has more than 2 people and you all want to sleep in a gypsy caravan in the same orchard why not hire Ruby and the Famous Five who can be pulled into the same orchard to make a really special experience. To find out about prices for hiring both gypsy caravans together call me or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Famous Five Caravan
Where you will experience a lifestyle from a less hurried time, where you can relax and where you can remember what life is really about.
The Famous Five, a bowtop gypsy caravan (once used in the TV series of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five) is found on a secluded and charming cider apple orchard overlooking the Somerset Levels. The bow top sleeps two in a traditional, cosy double bed with room for a young child underneath! It also has heating if required.
The Ruby Caravan
The Ruby Gypsy Caravan is a place where you can leave all your worries behind, enjoy the quiet, slow life of times past and fully relax in the stunning Somerset countryside.
Ruby is a bowtop vardo who has been lovingly restored by Emily. She can be found in a private meadow at the foot of Lollover Hill. Stay here for a memorable gypsy caravan holiday where if you are lucky you will see badgers and certainly rabbits. Quite possibly you will get a sighting of the resident barn owl.

A lovely few days getting back to nature in such a peaceful place. It should become essential for all families with teenagers!
Couldn’t have wished for a better time away. Facilities unbeatable.
Ruby is immaculate and very cosy and comfy. Saw all kinds of wildlife including owls.
Sue & Bob Mall
We’ve had a fantastic three nights. It’s been like stepping back in time in a very good way, the children have had a great time just being outside and I’ve loved it.
Wonderful in the truest sense of the word.. The children were so free and relaxed. The campfire and stargazing were out of this world.
A really beautiful place where we found the peace and quiet we were looking for away from it all.
A three day idyll, leaving us completely relaxed and de-stressed.
Katie and Sarah
I wanted somewhere to do a little “soul searching” and desperately needed some me time. This beautiful little hideaway certainly delivered.
A wonderful spot in the deep Somerset countryside. The perfect place for a family reunion.
Almost a dream, as people who are busy working in the city and running a business this was a true reminder to life.. what we achieved without Google was amazing!
Roger and Caz
What a beautiful and restful place to spend a few days of sitting in front of a campfire and recharging.
Vanessa and Glenn
This place is unforgettable. Really peaceful. there should be more places like this in the world.
The Breakfast Basket and open fire were amazing – good job you showed us how to get it lit. Exceeded our expectations.
Natasha and Lewis
I really loved it here especially the wildlife. The little owl who I heard at dusk was the best.
Well what can I say? Wasn’t sure at first but truly love it. We sat around the fire talking long into the night.
