nr. High Bickington, Devon
Nestled on the hillside in the heart of Devon, the Bluebird Penthouse is a 1950’s caravan that has been beautifully restored and modernised. With stunning panoramic views of the taw valley and the vintage style interior the bluebird is sure to captivate your heart.
The Bluebird Penthouse caravan had been abandoned at the bottom of a field over thirty years ago and was found in a very sorry state. After a complete gutting and refurbishing, she found her new glory and reigns on a hillside on the family farm.
Wagon in the Woods
The Wagon in the Woods is situated in a beautiful, secluded location amidst the Hampshire countryside. Experience its unique design and comfortable interior for a restful, rural break. Enjoy the wildlife whilst ambling along the public bridleways and see what the local establishments have to offer.
The Wagon in the woods was designed and built from scratch. It is situated in the grounds of our family home in the wood we planted thirty years ago, with a range of native trees.
Wagon & the Wigwam
The ultimate in rustic relaxation. A beautifully crafted light and airy space where comfort and the countryside meet.
The Wagon and the Wigwam is set in a beautiful rustic courtyard, alongside a sunken hot tub under a teepee.
The Wagon & the Wigwam was built with no timescale or budget, just the dream of creating the ultimate rural retreat for people to escape.
All come with private, en suite facilities so you don’t need to worry about trekking across a field in the middle of the night.
Our Little Places in the Country are equipped for all seasons; light and airy in the summer and snug and toasty in winter.
There is plenty of on-site, off-road parking available for you to use at all our Little Places.
You can make use of the private, outdoor hot tubs at each of our Little Places; all are purpose built and completely unique.
We can promise that you’ll never be disappointed with the landscape and views around you!
We try to go the extra mile to ensure you have a wonderful stay and the list of features doesn’t end there. You can find hidden baths and wine cellars, fire pits and hand crafted taps; just let us know if there’s something you’re missing and we’ll do our best to sort it.
The Little Places have all been designed and built by myself, Ralph, with the loving support and artistic input of my wife, Lucy. We returned to the family home in Hampshire (on the same land as the Wagon in the Woods) after getting married in 2014, and we love the rural lifestyle. Some of our favourite things include managing woodland, making and creating and growing our own vegetables. I work doing a range of bespoke building and carpentry projects for individuals and others (such as the National Trust), and have a passion for design and making things beautiful and a little different. Lucy works as a physiotherapist and has a real love for growing her own vegetables and all things arty and creative.
We really love our Little Places in the Country and regularly stay in them, but get great joy from sharing them with others. Our hope is you will leave not only feeling refreshed but inspired after your stay.
