    Property is large but quite close to the highway, so you hear the occasional truck but it's nothing that'll disturb your sleep. Toilet is a short walk to a fully-plumbed outhouse.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Hi Jerram, Thanks for your input. You both were wonderful guests and I would dearly love to have you back. As we have recently taken over management of the Blue Bus we are looking for any helpful ideas to improve your stay and although it’s a short walk, we are currently looking at possibly moving the toilet facility even closer. I’d be ever so grateful if you would also add your response in the feedback area to the guest book area too. Hope to see you again soon.

    If your looking for simplicity something quaint and different this is what you get. It's not luxury but certainly ticked all our boxes!

  • Neat experience and really friendly lovely landlords

    Neat experience and really friendly lovely landlords. A bit closer to the main highway than I had imagined but it didn't take away from the overall feel of a genuine 1950's house bus! Loved it!
