The Bluebird Penthouse is a 1950s caravan with a charming, vintage interior alongside a touch of luxury. Set deep in the Devonshire countryside, the Bluebird is surrounded by stunning views of the Taw Valley. The mezzanine and outdoor seating area are ideal for barbecues and dining out on in the summer months, whilst in winter the caravan’s central heating will keep you toasty warm and cosy, with the many windows ensuring you wont miss the view.
It is fitted out with a fully functioning kitchenette, spacious bathroom, a cosy double bed and plenty of open plan space between. The caravan is fully insulated and connected to a large biomass boiler, which is fuelled using sustainably grown wood on the farm. Look out for the Bluebird caravan in the floor tiles, and make sure you find the hidden wine cellar beneath your feet!
We’ve recently added a unique, outdoor hot tub, which has been built using one of the farm’s old vintage Land Rovers. Powered entirely using the eco-friendly biomass boiler, the tub is cleaned and refilled with fresh water for each new set of visitors. It’s a wonderful place to read a book, enjoy the view and watch the world go by (even in the snow)!
Amenities: basin, bath, chimnea, cooker, double bed, fridge, central heating, kitchen, outdoor seating, parking, private bathroom, radio, shower, table, toilet, wine cellar, outdoor hot tub.

“Had a nice and quiet weekend at Bluebird. The caravan was warm, cosy and quite spacious. It was well equipped and had everything you’d need. They also have additional heaters if required. A lot of thought has been put into the little details of the design. The views were amazing; definitely a great experience!”
“We had a simply incredible stay at the Bluebird Penthouse. The caravan is beautifully and lovingly renovated with incredible views over the countryside. It was warm, comfortable with every detail thought of. Perfect even in Winter but we can’t wait to return in summer to sit on the veranda and watch the sunset over the fields and use that amazing BBQ and chiminea!”

“My girlfriend and I came to stay for just a night – the Bluebird was charming and very well finished with everything you’d need for a cosy night in. It was a freezing cold night but to our surprise it kept the warmth in extremely well! The location was great – situated above a farm – with incredible views over the hills. Ralph was extremely helpful with directions and information (we arrived in the dark and found it without too much trouble) and easy to get a hold of. We’d definitely recommend and it’s a shame we only had time to stay for 1 night – hopefully come back to stay for longer some time in the year.”
“The Bluebird is warm and cosy. The view is spectacular and the attention to detail inside is superb. We stayed for 2 nights and really felt at home once we settled in. It’s a work of art!”
“A magical hideaway and a great escape to the country. Beautiful setting. Such care and effort has gone into creating a brilliantly quirky but cosy home. Loved all the details – ample space, all the amenities and 360 degree country views. Oh and we braved the hot tub in the snow and loved running back in to the warm caravan!”
“This is a beautiful caravan in a lovely area. The penthouse has been renovated with love and care and is really a unique place to stay with its own little history. My fiancé and I enjoyed luxury on her birthday as we enjoyed the warm, cosy space on offer. This isn’t your average caravan, there’s a good sized bath, the place is warm and theres so many nice little thoughtful touches to it. For unorthodox 1950s style luxury stay here!”
The Bluebird Penthouse caravan was our first project. It had been abandoned at the bottom of a field over thirty years ago and was found in a very sorry state. The interior had been removed and due to a fire inside it was in horrendous condition and destined for a skip. However, seeing it had some hidden beauty, despite its dilapidated state, the restoration began.
The first delivery driver turned up with the timber. He jumped out the cab, took one look at the Bluebird and said, “What a lovely old caravan! Shame it’s too trashed to restore.”
Many a time I thought he was right. It took over two thousand hours and almost broke me! Now after a complete gutting and refurbishing, with fully redesigned internals, she is back on top.
The Bluebird Penthouse is fully insulated and connected to a large biomass boiler, which is fuelled using sustainably grown wood on the farm. The decking, made also from trees grown on the farm, was added after refurbishment. She now reigns on a hillside on Lucy’s family farm and is looked after by her sister, Karen.
