The Ruby Caravan

Escape to The Ruby Gypsy Caravan for Unparalleled Peace in the Somerset Countryside

Ruby, a bowtop vardo, has been lovingly restored by Emily and is nestled in a private meadow at the base of Lollover Hill. This serene location offers a tranquil escape where you may spot badgers, rabbits, and even the occasional barn owl during your memorable gypsy caravan holiday.


Experience Privacy and Natural Beauty at Bartlett’s Farm

The tranquil, unique location for Ruby offers both privacy and charm far away from the disturbances of modern life.


Traditional Outdoor Living with Modern Conveniences

While traditional gypsy life often involved cooking and washing outdoors, Ruby offers both the classic experience with an open fire and tripod, as well as modern conveniences in ‘Swallow,’ a restored caravan featuring a gas hob, oven, and heating. Swallow also provides additional sleeping space with a small double and a single bed, catering to those who prefer a more conventional stay or those with additional guests.

What Do You Get?

Every necessity is taken care of during your stay at Ruby. We provide all bed linen, utensils, cutlery, and crockery. Enjoy the convenience of a purpose-built, private bathroom featuring a wonderful hot shower, located in the same meadow as Ruby. The toilet facilities are also private and situated nearby for your comfort.


Our Commitment to Your Refreshment and Relaxation

We strive to ensure that every visitor leaves feeling refreshed, relaxed, and revitalized. We believe we have all the ingredients for a perfect short break, weekend getaway, or longer holiday. Staying in the Ruby gypsy caravan offers a serene retreat with abundant peace, time, and space to relax and unwind.


Family and Pet-Friendly Accommodations

We warmly welcome families with children. Younger children, typically under 8 years old (depending on size), can snugly curl up under the main bed in the wagon. Older children can either sleep in ‘Swallow,’ our vintage caravan, or camp out in a tent. While we do allow dogs, we kindly request that arrangements be made with Emily in advance, and please note that dogs are not permitted inside Ruby.
