Gypsy Wagon in Cornwall: A pair of cute Romany wagons in a peaceful meadow with gorgeous views. For a cool getaway with a real difference, Gypsies Hideaway is everything you could possibly want - and more.
Wait a minute - are we in Little House on the Prairie? Or maybe it's Paint Your Wagon? Watch out, any minute now Doris Day will appear in a fringed suede jacket and start singing 'whip-crack-away'…. This perfect pair of traditional Romany caravans is all you need to conjure up childhood memories of setting up camp and playing cowboys and injuns - just light the camp fire, cuddle in a blanket in the rocking chair and press play for some Howard Keel on your ipod. With our pair of very special bowtop wagons - colourful, quirky and totally charmalicious - the citiest of slickers can enjoy a romantic getaway for two or a glamping holiday for the whole family at Gypsies Hideaway. They may be a step back in time, but Ned and Nelly possess all the hoedown home comforts you'll need. Your journey starts with an extremely bumpy (and we mean first gear for half a mile or so, and don't even think about trying it in a sports car) track to your very own quiet little meadow, where tranquility abounds and the views stretch far across the Wild West (well, Bodmin Moor and North Cornwall at any rate). Climb aboard into little Ned, where exuberant patterns flow across the curved ceiling; here there are cute cupboards topped with a small (four feet wide and six feet long) double bed. Then saddle up and ride your pony past the central camp fire (it's only a few steps really) to cosy Nelly, where brightly coloured fabrics offset the pine-clad ceiling and there's a humungously big double bed (this one's six feet wide by six foot four long) that can separate into twin beds for versatility. This is the place to snuggle up by the solid-fuel stove on chilly nights, or if you prefer you can mosy on over to the open-fronted log cabin, where there are benches around a wood-burner (all under cover) and al fresco dining. Cook your meals cowboy-style on the barbecue, using fresh herbs from the planters, or make the most of the kitchen cabin where there is an gas oven, fridge/freezer and all the other kitchen kit you'd expect. Here there is also a shower-room with a WC and, of course, running hot water. All together now: whip-crack-away, whip-crack-away, whip-crack-awaaaay.
Out and About
When you're done relaxing at home by the camp fire eating bangers and beans, you'll find lots to explore nearby. The dramatic North Cornish coast offers sandy beaches, great surfing, wonderful walks and enough good restaurants to make a foodie feel faint. The market town of Wadebridge is six miles away and Padstow just seven miles, and the Saints' Way, a 30-mile coast-to-coast trail, can be joined just at the end of the drive. Explore the moors, get on a bike or take shanks's pony and you know what? You'll love your Western adventure.
Steps up to Ned Gypsy Wagon with double bed (4'). Steps up to Nelly with double bed (6') that can be made into twin beds if required and wood-burner. Few steps away to the Cabin with Kitchen/Diner, gas cooker, fridge/freezer, kettle, toaster, and en suite Shower-room with shower, WC and wash-basin.
