“Enjoy the peace of the orchard in a static VW camper van, or retro caravan, nestling under the apple trees in the heart of south Somerset.”

Description of The Orchard Van

Come and stay in our lovely VW type 2 bay campervan or 2 berth Marauder caravan, parked in separate secluded corners of our delightful cottage garden with stunning views across the apple orchards.

Ramble through acres of apple trees, under the blossom in spring and the apples in autumn.

Both vehicles have their original interiors, with the addition of 12V spotlighting and new cushions in the VW.

Ambient lighting is provided by pretty fairy-lights both inside and outside both vehicles.

The Orchard Van and Caravan are most definitely off grid! There is no mains hook-up for either.

A wet-room shower and toilet are also available for use next to the house.

Water is in 15 litre containers, refillable a short walk away.

With the VW, there is a single burner gas cooker for outside use – the Marauder has interior cooking facilities and heating!

Fire pits beckon so you can sit warmly under the stars at the end of the day.

If one of the local pubs or restaurants doesn’t entice you in for supper, there is a small BBQ or we can provide you with a homemade two course supper in your ‘van or you can join us in the house.

There are two soft throws in both vans which double as blankets.

Check the forecast before your arrival – if it looks chilly bring an extra blanket or two!

There are two small hot water bottles to keep your toes warm.
