  • Getaway was exactly as detailed in the description, very easy to book...

    Getaway was exactly as detailed in the description, very easy to book and well supported in finding the wagon location and a demonstration of how to use. Also included local recommendations. Would highly recommend for those that are looking for something more than a boring hotel room. Views are stunning

    Unique little Gypsy style dwelling, cosy, fully self contained, parked on pebble beach. Not a 5 star hotel obviously but the van is clean, comfortable bed, portaloo, hot/cold running water/shower, mini cooker (2 gas rings) cute pot belly wood burner which I lit every evening as the weather was awful for my 3 day break! Great location in sunny weather, public toilet/shower block a short drive away, also not far to shopping area and outlet village on main road. I would stay there again ??
