This unique and beautifully painted gypsy caravan will offer you the quirky glamping experience you and your partner or family are looking for. Snuggled into a woodland area in our garden, overlooking the fields behind where deer and rabbits are frequently seen. It is hard to believe you are only minutes from the friendly market town of Ringwood, on the edge of the New Forest.


This unique and beautifully painted gypsy caravan has been built on an original 1930s dray base. It was locally made and painted this summer and has new curtains, upholstery and bedding.
It has a four foot wide double bed with a mattress from John Lewis, which can be reached by climbing onto the bench seats. From here guests can look out of the small leaded window.
This hut is comfortable for two but can be used by a family of four as there is a second bed under the main bed suitable for smaller children (aged approximately 4 -9 years as it is only 5 feet long). We charge 10 pounds for each younger guest per night and will provide a sleeping bag with integral pillow and a towel.
There is no electric - after all, who would want it when you can use fairy lights and tea lights (although we do provide an LED lantern and light incase you want to read).
There is a small wood burner, which makes the whole hut toasty warm in a few minutes and even after you let it die down, it will continue to keep you warm over night as the gypsy caravan has a modern insulation lining between the green canvas on the outside and the pretty rose fabric which makes up the internal lining. We provide you with a basket of wood which you can use here or on the chiminea outside as you sit and enjoy the sunset (perhaps even toast marshmallows!). A tray with a traditional tea set and a tea pot is set out for you on the cupboard.
We have a beautiful octagonal thatched summer house with decking that overlaps the pond. There are no fish so it has been naturally colonised by local wildlife including dragonflies, frogs and newts. There are power points here and you are welcome to make yourself a hot drink or recharge your mobile phones etc.
We have built a compost toilet for our guests. With accessories in bright colours- fairy lights, funky toilet seats, voile curtains, a cold water tap and a hand sanitiser we are sure this will get more use than our traditional toilet in the garage block. Guests are also welcome to use the shower room (separate access from the house) and we provide plenty of bath and hand towels and two towelling robes for your use during your stay.
Our gypsy caravan is snuggled into the wooded area at the end of the garden, close to the fields behind, regularly grazed by deer who have become quite used to us now. We have even seen both fallow and roe deer at the same time. A fox will do his nightly rounds and walks across the fence line daily although he can sometimes be seen in the middle of the day too.
There is a small secluded grassy area outside the caravan with a bench seat. Alternatively, you might choose to sit on the small seats built into the doorway of the gypsy caravan. From here you can peek through the arch to the pond.

Доступно гостям

Guests may use the back garden, also the summer house for drinks and recharging electrical items. We have many other animals including dogs, a cat, chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits, a tortoise and chameleons! We are happy to introduce you to our menagerie but we do ask that you do not go into the side garden or pen in the front garden unaccompanied as some of our dogs have come from less nurturing homes.
Our tree house has become a deer hide and children should not use this unsupervised as it is about a four metre drop into the ditch!

There is plenty of off road parking on the front drive.

We prefer to greet our guests and show you around on your arrival. If we are are both out, we can arrange to leave a key out for you and will come and say hello as soon as we can.

Общение с гостями

The location of our gypsy caravan is some distance from the main house so allows guests a good level of privacy. However my husband Jonathan and I love to meet visitors from other countries and other parts of England. We enjoy travelling a lot ourselves and still feel there is a lot of the world to explore.
We have three children aged 21,19 and 16. We have lived at Fernwood for over ten years and in Ringwood since 1990 so we are really happy to help with places to visit. We also love to hear about your days out and meals out you have enjoyed as this will enable us to share this with other guests. We also enjoy walking and cycling in the New Forest and can show you places to visit on the Ordnance Survey map.
Please ask if there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable. Above all we want you to enjoy your stay with us.

Другие важные подробности

Ringwood is a traditional market town on the edge of the New Forest which has still retained much of its original character. Every Wednesday the marketplace is blocked off for the traditional street market, but every evening it is buzzing with people, whether it is a meal out in a restaurant or a drink in the pub. In the day time there are plenty of small and unique shops to browse in and coffee shops. The old cattle market has now changed to The Furlong with places to sit and relax and some more well known high street shops, sometimes even French markets or street entertainment.
Ringwood is also on the Avon Valley Path, a 34-mile route across fields and footpaths across the Forest and alongside our beautiful River Avon that takes you from Salisbury Cathedral to Christchurch Priory.
The Castleman trail also runs along an old railway track with sections open near Burley and again from Ringwood, through Moors valley Countryside park and on to Poole and can be done in sections or one long day as a cycle trail, with sections along the River and through the forest.
There are lots of family friendly attractions and things to do nearby including Blashford Lakes Wildlife Reserve, Owl Raptor and Reptile Centre, Go Ape or the play trail at Moors Valley or walks at Avon Heath Country Park. For watersports there is also the New Forest Water Park on the road out of Ringwood towards Salisbury.
The New Forest villages are full of tea shops, ice creams, donkeys and ponies and well worth a visit.
If you prefer open space, we can recommend walks and quieter rural pubs in the forest too.

- This is a quiet location for couples or families with up to two children (aged 4 -10) and we do ask that guests do not play music outside and are quiet after ten p.m. It will be a memorable place to stay with your children but we do ask you to also think carefully about fellow guests (as we also have a shepherds hut nearby) as well as safety aspects (hot wood burner, unfenced pond and high deer hide) before booking.
Please do not smoke inside the van and ensure that all cigarette butts are disposed of properly.
We love dogs so it is with regret that we say no furry friends as we feel there are enough here already and we have some more vulnerable animals on site such as the chickens and guinea pigs.
Please note, we are generally only accepting a minimum of a 2 night booking at peak times (i.e. school holidays / weekends).

Utterly charming! Rachel and Jonathan were extremely welcoming and thought of everything to make our stay very special. Their delightful garden with its outlook over the fields make a lovely location for the gypsy caravan and summer house (where we had a delicious breakfast hamper). If you are a light sleeper, take some earplugs as there was traffic noise during the night from the busy A31, although this may of course depend on the wind direction. Many thanks to our hosts :o)

Ответ от Rachel:
We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay. There can be traffic noise if the wind is in the wrong direction and can affect many places in the forest. After all, we are several fields away. I guess it's a trade off for having such easy access to local towns and the beach. Generally it's owls and foxes people hear at night!

We had a great night in the gypsy caravan. We lighted the wood burner. It was warm and cosy. We had access to the patio and a nice bathroom. Real Glamping experience. The location was ideal for a cycle ride in the New Forest. Rachel was really helpful and welcoming. Valerie

Rachel and her husband's welcome is second to none. Everything they had specified about the accommodation was absolutely accurate. They went out of their way to ensure my week's stay was comfortable (in spite of the wet weather). The gypsy caravan is beautifully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Alongside the tea, coffee and hot chocolate, laid out in the summer house, I even noticed some cuppa soup - no doubt a last minute addition because of the wet weather. Rachel has the knack of thinking about something before you realise you need it! The gypsy caravan is one of two listings they have in their garden (both offering a good degree of privacy). I struggled a little to clamour up onto the bunk in the gypsy van but when I mentioned it, they immediately offered a solution and even went out and bought some steps! If you are finding it difficult choosing which of the two properties to book, I would say, while the gypsy caravan is more 'atmospheric', the shepherd's cottage does have a little more room. Book either of them - you won't regret it!!!

We spent a fantastic two nights in Rachel's gypsy caravan at the end of July. The attention to detail and well thought out setup makes for a very easy and relaxing glamping experience. The breakfast hamper was especially well received. Great base for exploring Dorset, studland and swanage. The local restaurants and shops were also brilliant to have nearby.

Thank you Robert. You had an unusual amount of rain while you were here so we are pleased it didn't spoil your stay. The Dorset coastline is spectacular and well worth a visit. We hope you'll come back and visit us again soon- you were all great guests!

Thank you Sam for your fantastic review. You didn't come from far away but it obviously felt like a real break away. We are glad you enjoyed the garden and sitting by the chiminea in the evening. Thanks for coming to stay with us.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay in this quirky and rather lovely accommodation. Rachel and Jonathon could not have been more helpful hosts. The weather was not kind (wild, wet and windy) but we nevertheless remained snug, dry and comfortable throughout in the lovely caravan.

Really pleased you managed to enjoy your visit despite the weather (which was a bit extreme for early September!). Perhaps next time you might be able to enjoy a bit of sunshine!

I have three children and lots of animals to look after! In my spare time I love to do gardening and there are always new projects. One of our greatest achievements was when we moved here, lived in a mobile home and built this house.
I walk my dogs when ever I can and go out for cycle rides in the forest with my husband Jonathan or with friends. Our own children are now becoming more independent and we are now enjoying going to music festivals.
We are both from the New Forest and have found it a fantastic place to bring up our own children. Ringwood seems to have the best of both worlds, with town facilities and yet having beaches and the New Forest on our doorstep.
Over the last ten years I have been walking the South West Coastal Path with my friend Jo and this summer we completed the 630 miles. We are both really going to miss those sea views, cream teas and nights away in a bed and breakfast. In fact, it was the night in a gypsy caravan and a yurt that really got me started on buying a shepherd's hut.
We have always valued holidays as a family and spent many years in tents in Devon, Cornwall and France. More recently we have taken our children to Australia, Malaysia and Namibia. Nothing beats the open space and freedom of a camping / clamping holiday!
