Beyond the village, the market town of Rye is well worth a visit with its selection of independent shops and cafes, while the nearby vineyards make for a great day out. The picture perfect Bodiam Castle can be seen from the showmans van and why not enjoy a trip on the Kent & Sussex Steam Railway to Tenterden, another pretty market town.

The newly refurbished 1980's former showman's living van was the accommodation for the fairground or circus owner which as used as a family home while they were on the road for the season.  The property is accessed by steps leading up to the veranda, with far reaching views across the surrounding countryside.  Step through into the warm and cosy living area which is the perfect place to unwind after a long stroll in the countryside with two comfy armchairs and a TV/DVD. The compact but well appointed kitchen contains a dining area for two and a gas oven and hob,  and fridge. The bedroom is located at the other end of the accommodation with built-in hanging space and a double bed, and the property is completed with a bathroom with a shower over the bath and a WC. There is an additional side room where coats and boots can be stored.

Really quirky and different living in an ex showmans caravan. It was really nice spending time on the varander, and enjoying the view over the countryside.

A wonderful hideaway. The on-site Hub cafe and walking distance Castle Inn were both excellent. The recommendation for The White Dog was spot on. We were lucky to have clear nights and the stargazing was fantastic without all that urban light pollution.
