A larger Shepherd’s Hut, a Safari Tent, a Yurt?
All of these accommodation options passed through our conversations while we were thinking of what to put on the glamping site next. Of our considerations none were hitting the right note though, although they’re all beautiful we needed something different. It had to be moveable, quirky and fun.
Most importantly, quirky and fun.
When we started running events on the farm through The Clarty Event Co and The Old Dog & Duck mobile bar arrived as the ‘resident’s bar’ we realised that you could sleep in one. So an old Rice horse trailer arrived and underwent a total overhaul and was converted into a glamping trailer.
Herbert is our ‘flagship’ Horsebox Hideaway and we wanted everything in the spec sheet for ours. We wanted a decent sized kitchen for food prep (after all gourmet and glamping go hand in hand!) with a cooking / washing up unit that could be used outside, a bed that could be left made up yet stored out of the way, space to enjoy outside and a deck area, a wood burner and a funky look.
To get around this challenge we decided to put the bed in the roof space on Herbert and have it on a winch that could come down at night. The cooking and washing up unit would be completely independent of the benches so it could wheel into place in either of the two ramp doors and a wood worktop would form a serving hatch.
Herbert is now available to book on our glamping site, and out of the peak summer season he is available for outside rentals so we can deliver him to wherever he is needed and set him up ready for guests to enjoy. See Horsebox Hideaway’s own website for more information on this service.
